Tire pyrolysis companies and tire recyclers worldwide rely on Mars Mineral pin mixers' continuous, low-maintenance operation to convert rCB into valuable pellets at the optimal size and hardness most coveted by end-users. Pelletizing takes on the environmental challenge caused by the annual disposal of over one billion end-of-life tires (ELTs) and turns them into a sustainable, circular economy solution.
For the past 50+ years, Mars Mineral has manufactured advanced agitation agglomeration or pelletization equipment and offered comprehensive applications experience in:
Lab & Pilot-Scale Testing
Onsite Technical Consultations & Services
Mars Mineral's commitment to material circularity extends beyond the rCB market. Since 1972, we've served diverse industries, including steel, chemical, and consumer goods, offering comprehensive pelletizing solutions. Mars Mineral manufactures its equipment at its 50,000-sq-ft (4645-sq-m) facility in Mars, Pennsylvania, USA, 20 miles (35 km) north of Pittsburgh, which gives us complete control over the quality of our processes and equipment.
Uncover the benefits and efficiencies of transforming rCB into pellets, enhancing sustainability and product quality in various industries. These aren't just any pellets but valuable commodities eagerly sought after by manufacturers in myriad applications.
The Mars Mineral Pin Mixer is a pin-type solids processor customized to convert dust and powder into high-quality pellets with the addition of a binder, usually water. Our pelletizing technology can generate ASTM-grade pellets with high first-pass yields of 125 μm -1000 μm and hardness of 20 g - 50 g, which is the sweet spot for end-use feedstocks for the aerospace, appliance, automotive, coatings, electronics, industrial, marine, packaging, plastics, rubber, and tire manufacturing applications.
Mars Mineral can help you capitalize on this growing market for pelletized rCB powder with our customized pin mixer technology. The pellets created by Mars Mineral pin mixers are integral in manufacturing various products, enhancing aesthetics, durability, and functionality.
