The Enerpat Tire DeBeader pulls both beads at the each time from car and truck tires (car tire die plates optional). The Enerpat Debeader will pull the steel bead out of tires up to and including super-single truck tires. Operation of the unit makes it a natural for shredding operations. Removal of the bead wire prior to shredding allows for a cleaner end product and provides less wear on the moving parts of the shredder. This unit provides a more effective shredding operation, but also cuts down on expensive maintenance on a shredder. Steel bead wire can also be recycled. Units available are stationary or portable with either electric or diesel engines.
