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 from 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 50mm to 500mm (2” to 20”) 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 500mm minus or a finished product of 50mm 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 35mm up to 220mm.
