Our customers operate in countless different areas of the waste management industry. They treat a wide range of waste types and streams using a variety of processes. Our job is to help them do that as easily, cost-effectively and ecologically as possible. In this blog, we answer the most frequent questions about TANA machines and what they can do for our customers’ business and success.

What is Tana?

Tana Oy is a privately owned Finnish company founded in 1971. Ever since then, we have manufactured machines for solid waste treatment. Tana exports and has sales and service functions in more than 70 countries in five different continents. The company is based in Finland. All our products are designed and manufactured in Finland.

How can TANA products help my business? 

All our products aim at providing you maximum efficiency and profit so that your waste management business can thrive. TANA machines are designed with skill and experience using the best components and materials. All our machines come with smart solutions for optimizing the operation and processes.


TANA Shredders  

TANA Shark shredders have unique versatility. They can shred anything but steel, stones and concrete. They are particularly good for RDF/SRF production and cost-efficient treatment of tires, ragger wire, plastics and C&D waste. They also shred a wide variety of special materials. The versatility means that one TANA Shark can replace two or even three machines in your process.

With TANA Shark’s shredding power and the over-band magnet, you can better separate materials for recycling and reuse, which gives you extra income. You get a higher-quality end-product, as the machine with its built-in screen produces a homogenous particle size even in one pass. Once shred, the material takes up less space in storage and transportation, saving you money.

TANA Drum screen

TANA’s 6Deco drum screen has a large drum. It is 18 feet (5.5 meters) long and 7 feet (2.2 meters) in diameter. This allows you to screen more material in shorter time and with less operating costs. The drum screen is a mechanically robust and reliable machine, yet the fuel consumption is low. Its load-sensing hydraulics help bring fuel consumption even further down. As the structure of the machine is simple, it is also affordable and easy to service and operate.

TANA Disc screen 

The new disc screen technology provides unparalleled versatility and capacity in screening. We can provide units based on customer requirements through the flexible concept we have with Ecostar. 

TANA landfill compactors 

TANA landfill compactors are the first purpose-built compactors in the world. The stand-out features of the structure are the two full width drums and the rigid, non-oscillating frame. They result in better compaction and higher waste treatment capacity with lower operating costs and in fewer passes. 

We are so certain about the machine’s unparalleled compaction ability that Tana has a compaction guarantee. If a trial doesn’t prove a minimum of 10% better compaction rate compared to the previous machines, we’ll take the machine back.
