Figure 1: Simplifying the process by replacing two Doppstadt shredders with only one TANA Shark 440D was the answer to our customers’ needs for shredding waste wood. With 50 000 tons of average production annually, our customer is now saving 103 000 euros/year in operating costs.
The material of the compost wood waste includes often some wires, metals and plastics that are commonly causing problems with the shredders on the market.
- Earlier, the wires and the plastic materials wrapped around the rotor. This problem is history for us, because the cutting technology and torque of the TANA Shark 440D is cutting even the hardest, slimmest and the most elastic materials with ease. This is very crucial for us.
- We are very impressed by our new TANA Shark 440D. We have gotten better quality and possibility to utilize the same machine for many different purposes. We no longer need separate machines and solutions for shredding wood, metal, plastics, tyres or MSW – TANA Shark 440D takes care of everything we need in the future for shredding!
|Doppstadt DW3060 (pre-shredding)||TANA Shark 440D|
| Not cutting the material, but tearing
Troubles with wires
Besides wood, TANA Shark can handle wires, metal particles, long and elastic plastics, tires and other rubbers easily with the most efficient cutting technology
|Bad ergonomy for changing knives||Changing knives can be done easily in minutes by opening the side door. Watch the video|
|Doppstadt AK430 (finalization)|
|Troubles with metal and stone particles (possibility to damage the machine)||No fear of damage due to random metal and stone particles. Metal particles can be removed with an overband magnet in the process|
|Creating fine wood dust (20 %) in the process which has no value||No fine wood dust produced in the shredding process, particle quality is excellent for burning purposes|
|Perform the shredding process with just one machine in just one pass
No need for a separate screening process at the end, which eliminates the need to use loaders for a complete of 3 different stages during the process. Only one loading needed with TANA Shark 440D
Lower the costs of operation from 5,83 €/ton to 3,77 €/ton
Possibility to use TANA Shark with different materials, a perfect all-around shredder
“The ergonomy and safety of the TANA Shark 440D is years ahead compared to the previous machines we have used. For example changing knives and/or screen is not only safe but also a really quick procedure to do due to the marvellous design of the machine. Très bon!“

Did you know?
Because TANA Shark 440D is a slow-speed shredder, rocks or metal particles do not damage the structures or the rotor, whereas high speed shredders normally used for wood shredding business are quite vulnerable to those.
