TANA Shark waste shredder

Recycling rates are increasing globally and new possibilities for using waste as a resource are opening up every year. Legislation aimed at reducing disposal to landfill means new methods of resource recovery, including waste-to-energy are leading to a variety of novel systems and processes. Because the business environment is constantly changing, having a versatile machine is invaluable.

The TANA Shark waste shredder was designed with exactly this in mind. The slow-speed multipurpose waste shredder is suitable for a variety of tasks, including pre-shredding, secondary shredding, small particle size shredding and in-line systems. It can shred a wide variety of materials, ranging from tyres, commercial and industrial waste construction, plastics to mattresses. The TANA Shark waste shredder enables full control over the particle size from 50 to 500 millimetres (two to 20 inches) with low operation costs and a possibility to perform shredding in just one pass.

One of the most problematic yet growing areas of recycling is end-of-life tyres. The TANA Shark 440 waste shredder can be used to shred tyres, with sizes ranging from car and truck tyres up to heavy earthmoving and mining.

Ensuring the end result is pure rubber without any metal wires, TANA Shark 440 takes care of the shredding process, whether its a pre-shred from 500 millimetre minus or a finished product of 50 millimetre minus.

In the primary shredding phases, unwanted metal wires are removed using an over-band magnet and a range of screens which are inserted below the rotor to generate a particular size of material. The end product size and quality can be determined and finalised by using a rotor screen with suitable mesh size out of the six available, ranging from 35 up to 220 millimetres.

The Terex TDS 820 features customisable shredding programs that give operators the opportunity to configure the machine to their specific requirements, reduce material wrapping and maximise production. Designed with independently-driven shafts, this double-shaft slow speed shredder is assured to give machine operators excellent performance in even the most challenging of applications.

The behemoth single-shaft shredder

Applied Machinery’s BH Series heavy-duty single shaft shredder can be considered a “behemoth.”

The heavy-duty size reduction machine is designed for shredding a wide variety of materials with the powerful, wear resistant machine structure well suited to demanding recycling applications.

Applications include municipal solid, industrial and demolition waste, wood waste, plastics, alternative fuels and a range of other items.

Its v-cutting rotor design allows for staggered cutter positioning alongside heat treated and adjustable counter knives ensuring cutter clearance can be maintained.

A classifier screen enables accurate particle size control while a force feeding ram supports a precision machined chamber base with adjustable/replaceable brass guides.

The machine’s powerful electric drive motors, heavy duty oversized gearboxes and shock absorption system ensure smooth processing with improved performance. Its bearings, hydraulic opening design and electrical control panel mean the machine is robust and intuitive.

Other equally capable machines include GC Series Granulators, ideal for a range of materials such as plastics, rubber and fibres and K Series high performance single shaft shredders suitable for processing a wide range of materials.

Applied Machinery works with its customers to find the right machine for them, with a number of Genox shredders and granulators also available for niche applications.
