This research is designed to answer the following questions 1 Is the concept of removing rubber from roadwheels by a super-cooling technique valid and 2 how does this technique compare with methods presently being used with respect to operating costs, safety, and environmental pollution. In answering these questions, an experiment is conducted to validate the concept and to determine liquid nitrogen usage requirements. An economic analysis is performed to compare the costs of the super-cooling technique with those of the brake drum lathe method of rubber removal. Safety and environmental pollution factors are also investigated and discussed.
