TANA Shark - Model 440DT - On Tracks Mobile Shredders
TANA Shark in general
The TANA Shark waste shredder is a hydraulically driven, diesel engine powered, single shaft, low-speed mobile shredder. Its diesel engine and hydrostatic transmission are controlled by TANA Control System (TCS). The TANA TCS protects the machine from overloading, overheating and possible damage caused by non-crushable material.
The biggest change externally in the TANA 440DTeco shredder is the new higher machine frame, which allows over 200mm more space between the conveyor and the rotor on track models. The new frame structure allows more space for material flow underneath the rotor, helping especially with the pre-shredding of bulky materials, such as plastics and mattresses. Similarly, the new hopper design features a raised wall to prevent unshredded materials from falling onto the discharge conveyor.
TANA Shark is suitable for shredding of most reusable, recyclable and recoverable materials. The purpose may be volume reduction, refuse derived fuel production or recyclable material production. The key to productivity is the machine's versatility. It is able to handle materials from MSW to waste wood, from plastics to tyres and it can be used either as a pre-shredder or to produce the required particle size in one phase.
Rotor and cutting knives
TANA Shark shreds material by cutting. The rotor configuration is a uniquely designed counter-twist. The cutting knives are reversible and made of highly wear-resistant material. There is a special rotor carrier assembly (pat. pend} protecting against possible damage in gearboxes. In addition to the traditional 33-knife rotor, there is also the new option of 44 knives for added shredding performance. For example, the 44-knife roto increases capacity / output in tire shredding by 25 %. The extended rotor offering also includes options for heavy duty use and for optimizing operating costs. In addition, with the updated labyrinth seal the rotor end structure has improved to protect the gearbox from external objects and disturbances.
Homogeneous particle size
The rotor to screen clearance has a major impact on the overall productivity of the shredder and uniform quality of the output. In TANA Shark this clearance can be finetuned for maximum performance.
Screens are available in different mesh shapes and sizes which the operator can choose from according to the requirements he has for the end product size. The simple and robust counter knife design adds up to the versatility. The amount of the counter knives can be adjusted and they have two wearing surfaces.
TANA Shark has a variety of options to choose from:
- Electric fuel refill pump
- Engine air-intake pre-cleaner
- Extension to conveyor
- TANA ProTrack® reports
- Scaling system
