The greatest success stories are told by our customers. Read what kind of challenges they have had before finding a solution from our TANA Shark slow-speed waste shredder.
SGS Recovery, LLC based in Buffalo, New York supplies tailored engineered fuel to utilities, paper-mills and cement kilns. To produce high-quality consistent and dependable fuel, they use TANA waste shredders to grind a large variety of materials into fuel: biomass, end-of-life tires, plastics, and fluff for instance.
For Attero Recycling Ltd operating in the alternative fuels sector, TANA Shark waste shredder is the only shredder on the market that can produce the required particle size for solid recovered fuel (SRF) in a single pass. After the purchase, Attero was able to cut the number of machines in half and increase output, saving time and money.
In a world filled with plastic packaging that tries to move towards an even greater level of recycling, our customer in Belgium is achieving great results using the TANA Shark to shred hard plastics. The shredded plastic can be burned for energy production or sold to be used in making new plastic items. The versatility of the Shark is helping them adapt to the changing needs for particle size.
The customer is extremely happy with the results and has started to experiment with other waste types to expand his business.
Recycling cardboard for use as new packaging material saves costs for the manufacturer. Steel wires and plastic left behind in the pulping process of recycling the cardboard is called ragger wire and landfilling it is costly.
Our US customer bought a TANA Shark to shred the ragger wire and separate the steel for resale. He is now able to sell the shredded steel and burn the remaining plastic for energy, turning previous costs to profit.
Our customer from southern Europe uses tyre shreds as an alternative heat source instead of coal and oil in a process of making cement out of chalk stone. Formerly they used electric, stationary shredder without an over-band magnet.
After changing the machinery to TANA Shark 440DT, the diesel-driven mobile waste shredder on tracks, the customer has been very satisfied on both the improvements in the shredding process and the new profits they have been able to access.
Shredding tyres prior to transportation is the easiest way to lower transportation costs: a total of four times the amount of material can be loaded for one trip.
For a customer in Italy, the high shredding capacity of TANA Shark 440 enables higher profitability of their granulation process as a result of cheaper consumable parts.
Valuable metal wires from paper pulp bales are hard to separate from the mass of binding plastics and pulp residues. Normally the waste would be delivered straight to the landfill.
TANA Shark 440 has been proven to be able to separate the valuable scrap metal. This means that the landfill which normally receives an annual 10 000 tons of non-recyclable waste can now turn the waste into a 750 000 €/year profit.
This demonstration run report shows how significant role an effective shredding process has for enhancing the whole business of a landfill operator producing SRF at their site.
As the results show, with TANA Shark 440 it is possible to double the amount of the SRF produced annually, while extending the life cycle of the landfill.
Our customer in France was shredding waste wood with two Doppstadts. After processing the wood twice, even 20% of the total outcome was worthless fine wood dust.
Productivity of the shredding process has improved a lot after acquiring the TANA Shark 440D.
Quality means everything in RDF production when shredding Construction & Demolition (C&D) and Industrial waste.
RDF production requires the best shredder in the market to take care of the most difficult, long elastic and stringy materials. Read how our customer turned their uptime from the previous 80% to 99% while increasing the profit margin by an amazing +800%.
Lassila-Tikanoja Ltd was using three different units to shred tyres for total output of 2 tons per hour.
Now the whole process from pre-shredding to finalization to the required 80 mm particle size is done with TANA Shark 440DT. Total output is 12-15 tons per hour. That is over 600% increase in production.
Our customer in Belgium was processing 100 000 tons industrial heavy waste annually by three different machines.
After purchasing TANA Shark 440DT, 280 tons of industrial, not-presorted waste including also hard fractions is now processed in 14 hours with only one machine.
