It takes proper planning, powerful equipment, and years of experience to safely demolish any structure. We utilize a variety of methods, including:
Mechanical Demolition – using cranes, excavators, rams, and dozers to tear down a building.
Implosion – placing high powered explosives in carefully selected locations of the structure and detonating them to bring the structure down.
Deconstruction/ Dismantling – As the name suggests, deconstruction/dismantling is the opposite of construction. It involves a careful process of dismantling a structure.
Tire Recycling / Equipment Solutions:
In our effort to support a clean environment, we offer tire shredders and tire processing equipment designed to process steel-belted tires. The complete line of the tire shredding and steel liberation processing equipment is offered as a turnkey solution. Scrap tires collected are processed and refined by size-reduction techniques designed to achieve a range of particle sizes as small as 600 microns. Various mesh sizes of crumb rubber become the ideal raw material for a wide variety of applications, including molded rubber goods and adhesives. Larger sizes are used for civil engineering applications as a substitute for stone aggregates, or as a fuel to power kilns, mills and power plants. Smaller sizes are incorporated into a number of industrial, athletic field, paving and landscaping applications, among others.
Kilgore International has a proven track record for safely removing all types of commercial and industrial structures. We specialize in various types of demolition and understand that each job has its own unique requirements. Large, multi-story building, grain silos, collegiate stadiums, schools, industrial warehouses, refineries, and manufacturing plant are but a few of types of structures we have demolished.
