At the Crumbing plant, shred supplied by the shredding division passes through a series of steps to remove all rocks, metal and foreign objects before being fed into the granulators. Material remains in the granulator until it is small enough to pass through screens in the bottom of the machine. The screens are changed depending upon the desired size of output.

Finished product, clean crumb rubber that is free of metal and fibre, is conveyed into a bagging hopper and packaged according to the needs of the customer.
