Produce anything between 50 to 500mm

Shredding Green Waste with TANA Shark

TANA Shark is able to produce high quality end product for a variety of quality specifications of the end product. The particle size variation is wide and regardless of the requirements the most homogeneous particle size is produced. The cutting effect, adjustable counter-knives and rotor screens with different mesh sizes are the key features for producing homogeneous particle sizes from 50mm to 500mm. 

TANA Shark is equipped with easy to use TANA Control System (TCS), which offers 12 pre-settings for a quick way to control the shredding process. Depending on weather you are shredding more demanding logs and trunks or something lighter, choosing the right program of the TCS helps in optimizing the output capacity and fuel consumption.


Achieving uniform end product easily

Highly uniform end product size is a goal for an optimal composting process. Larger pieces do not compost in the same time period as the others, and might require an extra shredding and/or a screening process. This lowers the efficiency of the operation with other conventional shredders and might require investing into a secondary shredder or a screen. 

Saving both time and money by producing the needed end product size in one pass is possible with TANA Shark: the rotor screen can be used to fine tune the particle size and even quality. Other settings such as the counter knife-settings of the counter wall can be set in just minutes.
