Waste can be transformed into valuable raw materials - with the right machine.

Material recycling and reprocessing a rapidly growing business opportunity. Reducing, re-using and recovering waste to manage waste sustainably can be done profitably.

The TANA Shark is the most versatile shredder on the market and the perfect machine for handling different waste materials that can change even on a daily basis. Even the most challenging materials, such as mattresses, large tires, stretchy plastics and cables, are no match for the TANA Shark. TANA Shark shredders can produce particle sizes ranging from 2 to 20 inches.

The use and profitability of waste materials

In the material recovery process, waste is transformed into valuable raw materials. Since the composition of waste streams constantly changes, the waste shredder needs to be more adjustable and efficient than ever before. Optimally shredded and processed waste offers a profitable resource in the form of reusable materials. TANA Shark shredders are the optimal choice for handling large amounts of recycled materials. The TANA Control System, adjustable rotor and conveyor speeds, overcharge pressure limits and rotor options make production flexible and optimize shredder operations from one waste to another easily via a touchscreen.

End-of-Life Tires

End-of-life tires and waste tires for cars, trucks, aircraft and heavy-duty vehicles are among the most problematic and difficult waste types to recycle. TANA high-torque shredders make it possible to shred tires to a very homogeneous 80 mm (3″) particle size in just one pass and separate most of the metals during the shredding process.


Mattresses are usually considered a nightmare in the waste management industry. Mattresses cannot be easily compacted in the landfill, and springs are difficult for most shredders. For low-revving and high-torque TANA Shark shredders, however, mattresses are an easy task

C&D waste

The characteristics of construction and demolition waste include both easily recyclable and disposable materials. Separating valuable ferrous materials is easy with the TANA shredder.

Cables & wires

Cables may be long, flexible, winding and hard, they may hide valuable metals in them like copper, they may be sticky and soft. In extreme cases, separating valuable metals from the cables without a shredder with high torque like TANA Shark can be almost impossible task.


Plastic waste is not all the same; PET/PETE from beverage bottles, HDPE from containers, pipes and building materials, PVC from blumping pipes, medical waste and toys, LDPE from wrapping, PP&PS from packaging and construction etc. The list goes on! Plastic is everywhere and in everything, which makes it a complex waste to deal with.

C&I waste

Commercial and industrial waste typically contains different kinds of packaging materials, like hard and soft plastics, cardboard, paper, wires, paper rolls, containers, aluminium, gypsum or any reject from production line of a manufacturing process, sand paper for instance

Waste wood

Certain types of waste wood such as railway sleepers require an efficient shredder with a tolerance for metal nails, bolts and bars.

Ragger wire

TANA 440 series shredders are a proven solution for shredding of ragger wire. It is a demanding operation for the shredder and for the operator loading it.

Get more out of your investment. Choosing the shredder.

Investing in a more efficient shredding process, versatility is the key factor. It´s important to determine the range of particle sizes that can be produced in one go. Versatile shredding machines can handle different waste processing applications and fractions. It can produce a range in particle size from around 2 to 20 inches and save loads of working time.

TANA ProTrack® is an integrated information management system that collects real-time and detailed data about the shredding process, amounts of shredded materials and the machine itself. TANA ProTrack® real-time reports provide access to detailed information about fuel consumption, the amount of shredded materials, productivity and working hours.

Reduce operating costs. Optimising the shredding process.

The cost of energy in shredding process is typically larger than the profit. To meet the higher recycling targets and keep shredding costs to a minimum, the process must be more efficient than ever before. To get more savings, it is time to optimise operational usage, fuel/energy, operators, and maintenance. One versatile shredder is a way to create a more efficient shredding process with fever machines and labor costs. Optimise your process with in-built intelligence and mobile real-time view of operational data.
