Tyre Blocker

THETFORD have been manufacturing waste compactors and waste handling equipment for over four decades and complementary to our range of compactors we have introduced a tyre blocker for compacting old and used tyres into blocks for economical transportation and re-use in other engineering areas. 

Each block weighs approximately 0.8 tonne and can contain up to 110 old tyres.  The blocks have many uses in landfill sites, flood defence, in-fill, riverbank  renewal, sea defences, commercial and military uses.  The Thetford International Tyre Blocker can, depending on which model is specified, process 440 tyres per hour.  The blocker can accept car tyres of all mixed sizes with also some light commercial vehicle tyres.

The Thetford International tyre blocker converts waste tyres into a product which has several uses, such as:

  • Shore and river erosion projects (Sea Defences)
  • Sub-base material for road construction and car parks
  • Acoustic abatement
  • Flood protection
  • Landfill Site Roadways
  • Land reclamation
  • Farm flock management
  • Explosion protection
  • Spillage reservoirs
  • Dams
  • Embankments
  • Ramps
  • And others

All Thetford equipment complies with the Health & Safety at Work Act.
