Press on tire disposal
Any one out there that has found away to get the rubber off of a solid cushion old tire so the metal can be scraped and the rubber sent to a recycle r , is there such a machine out there?

Millennium Tire has a green wheel program where they will recycle your used wheels.

maybe you'll need a tire press machine.

I've seen a couple of home grown solutions.
One involved a vertical lathe type of contraption, that pushed a large blade into the rubber and peeled it. Bent steel bands broke tooling often.
The most effective was using an induction heater on the steel band to break the bond. You need a good extraction system system though as the gases aren't good.

That is what I am interested in , something that can tear the rubber off the rings , The other method is pricey and time consuming, I have found some that will burn it off and leave dust. again to expensive and slow.Thanks for getting back to me.

there hasn't been an easy way invented yet to do what you are inquiring about.
like Darren said, there have been some tire companies or independents that have engineered some sort of way to do this but as of yet nobody has invented a machine to remove the rubber off the press rings easily and safely.
So its either cutting, heating the bond and brute forcing by press, or burning the rubber off.
This is an open concept begging for someone to invent a machine to do this task. ;o)

You've been swooped!

I believe it's too much hassle to deal with trying to recycle them yourself. You can likely find an auto recycler in your area that will take them off your hands. They can put them in junk cars to be crushed and then shredded.
The shredder can handle them very easily and everyone wins.

Hello friends, Whilst we work over-time to ensure that there is no bonding failures on Press-on Tires, you folks are bent on breaking it.. really hilarious. No one takes it that press-on tire fitted Forklifts are to be used purely on indoor applications.. they use it everywhere including on litter, grease, oil, etc. so we need to ensure that bonding is virtually un-poachable.. but there is a safe way out without costly machines.. but you’ll need couple of unskilled hands. Just email us at [email address removed] for that free tip..

I had a customer that collected and shipped old auto and truck tires to china. They would freeze them with liquid nitrogen (or something to that effect) and then pulverize the rubber to little pieces. They told me the steel inside the tire would come out looking brand new and be recycled while the rubber was used in power generation facilities since it contained more BTU's per lb than coal.

I don't know if that would work with press on tires with the steel band being so thick but it is an avenue not discussed above.

Hi Royaltyres. Your email address got deleted. Please email me. You can find my email address in my profile.

Dreamt I was fixing a machine, then came the paperwork and it turned into a nightmare.
