Saturn® Grizzly Super 80

10 tons per hour

Saturn Grizzly Super 80

The Grizzly separates rubber and steel during processing while producing incredibly clean rubber. Our unique single-rotor design provides efficient size reduction. Adjustable screen sizes provide flexibility in the final product size, with ranges from 1/2" minus to 1-inch minus, or larger. By producing smaller, more consistent material, the Grizzly improves the performance of downstream equipment, or can replace it entirely. With consistent sizing of the rubber, the resulting rubber is an economic material for use in molding and extruding processes. Learn More »

Saturn® Powderizers

Saturn Powderizers

Using wire-free 1/4" tire chips, Granutech’s Powderizers can produce output sizes from 5/32 to 30 mesh, depending on screen size. They are high output machinery, with rates ranging from 12 pounds per minute to 30 pounds per minute, depending on the screen selection and final output size. Powderized rubber is used for molded and extruded parts. Learn More »

Saturn® Refiner Mills

Granutech Grizzly

Our next generation G-4X mill features higher processing speeds of 3 tons per hour and can produce 10 mesh through 80 mesh rubber powder using clean stock from granulator or Powderizer systems, further refining the rubber for high quality rubber material. In addition, the sealed roller bearing design eliminates the need for continuous lubrication, saving up to $25,000 a year in consumables—and reduced energy consumption due to more efficient operation.

Recycling scrap tires requires machinery that can efficiently produce clean rubber in the size that is required for the intended use of the recycled material. Granutech has the experience and knowledge to provide you with the custom solutions to meet your application requirements, allowing you to efficiently and cost-effectively recycle tires.

Tire Shredding & Tire Recycling Systems

Options for our 2, 3, and 4-stage scrap tire shredding and recycling equipment systems include:

  • 2-stage system -- reduces whole tires to steel-free mulch material or a low steel fuel quality material. This system solution would typically be comprised of the Saturn Shredder series (dual or quad shaft) plus a grinder (Saturn Grizzly Series- M80 or S80 models).
  • 3-stage system -- 2-stage system plus a granulator or a refiner mill. For .5-3mm material output, you would add a Saturn G-4X Refiner Mill.
  • 4-stage system -- would reduce all material to 1-3mm if with the addition of a Granutech Powderizer, or all under 1mm with the Saturn G-4X refiner mill.
