Wolf Material Handling Systems designs, engineers, and manufacturers tire derived fuel (TDF) systems and equipment.
Tires can be used as fuel either in shredded form - known as tire-derived fuel (TDF) — or whole, depending on the type of combustion device. Scrap tires are typically used as a supplement to traditional fuels such as coal or wood. About 130 million tires (45% of all discarded tires) are used in the US each as tire-derived fuel.
Tire Derived Fuel is typically processed with truck dumpers, truck loading and unloading, receiving hoppers, explosion protection, sorting, magnetic separation, sizing, drying, apron conveyors, belt conveyors, chain conveyors, chain belt conveyors, drag conveyors, screw conveyors, metering bins, stackers, storage, reclaimers and boiler feed.
