Traditionally, different waste streams are shredded and screened in multiple passes, often by different machines. But what if there was a setup that could cope with both shredding and screening tires, municipal solid waste (MSW) and bulky waste like mattresses in only one pass? And produce perfect particle sizes for different reusing purposes. In addition, this could be done with reasonable fuel consumption and high capacity. And the entire process could be observed in real time by tablet or mobile phone.
All this was achieved at our Baltic Demo Tour arranged in Riga, Latvia. The venue was a landfill site owned by Ekogetlin, our loyal customer and appreciated companion, and it was performed in close cooperation with LASUA (the Latvian Association of Waste Management Companies).
The demonstration featured the TANA Shark slow-speed shredder and a drum screen. It was operated in conjunction with TANA SMART SITE™, the online service provided to machine owners and operators to enable them to follow the whole process in real time. Check the photo set below to see how the demonstration proceeded.
Picture 1. Tires are fed into the TANA Shark 440DT slow speed shredder, which shreds them in one pass and conveys the shred into the drum screen.
Picture 2. The TANA 6D drum screen separates the shred into neat, separate piles based on particle size.
Picture 3. In another demo setup, MSW is fed into the shredder.
Picture 4. And the shredded MSW is separated in neat piles at the required particle sizes.
Picture 5. Fuel consumption and capacity was followed in real time from a tablet.
Our sincere thanks go to the great people who joined our demo, and to Ekogetlin and LASUA for making it possible.
