Custom Built Surge Bins

Surge bins available for immediate sale, customizable for your needs.

We have the following surge bins built and waiting in our yard:

  • 1 unit – 8 feet wide by 20 feet long by 10 feet 8 inches tall
  • 1 unit – 8 feet wide by 16 feet long by 10 feet 7 inches tall
  • 1 unit – 8 feet wide by 12 feet long by 10 feet tall
  • 1 unit – 7 feet 2 inches wide by 10 feet long by 4 feet 4 inches tall

We custom build these units for many of the systems we design and sell to the Tire Recycling Industry. We custom build these bins out of 3/16″ thick steel unless you specify heavier or lighter steel at the time of purchase. The units on hand are all 3/16″ thick. We can custom build these surge bins to meet whatever your specific need might be from primary tire shredding all the way down to crumb rubber production.

The units above were designed for the storage of 1″-2″ TDF (tire derived fuel) chips and for the storage of 3/8″-3/4″ rubber mulch material. One of the large bins is designed to allow you to feed either two separate machines or have the capability of making one size product while sending half of the material on down the line for further size reduction.

We can also match these or other bins we might build for you with many different sizes and types of screw auger conveyors or drag chain conveyors. And of course we can also furnish you with whatever drive system you might need to meet your specific product flow needs. We can offer continuous speed drive systems or many different types of variable speed drive systems to accommodate you plants needs.

These bins are perfect for product storage. Their most valuable use is to balance out systems to accommodate the differences in product coming from various machines in a crumb rubber line. You can capture the output of the faster machines at the start of the line and then shut down the faster machines for a time to let the system catch up. And of course if a machine has to go down for maintenance a surge bin allows you to keep feeding the machines following it. Or to keep running the machine in front of it while the next machine in line is repaired. This allows you to balance out your production line to keep each machine in the line running at its optimum production.

Each crumb rubber system is different and we use many different types and brands of equipment to perform the different functions needed to reduce whole tires down to crumb rubber. These custom built surge bins allow us the flexibility needed to be able to better match equipment up to build these crumb rubber systems.

Many times these custom built surge bins also give you the flexibility to be able to only operate part of the plant while we are working on other parts of the plant. These bins will give  you the storage capacity to run certain machines for an extended period of time on the reserve in the storage bins feeding this particular machine or part of the system.

These custom built storage bins were designed mainly for the Tire Recycling Industry but they can be used in almost all industries. We welcome the opportunity to be able to quote you on your custom built surge bin requirements. Be assured that you will be buying the best bins at affordable pricing offered in the industry today.
