How the recollection of C&I waste is organized and for what purpose it is being treated affects the treatment process. When the incoming material flow is pre-sorted the contents is relatively known and easy to anticipate. In other cases, it can contain anything which is always a challenge to the mechanical treatment, especially shredding. Because of that a slow speed, single shaft shredder with high torque and possibility to optimize machine functions is a good solution. Contaminants in the waste flow may slow down the treatment process but they very seldom break the machine and because of the unique features of TANA shredders the downtime is minimal.
C&I waste is treated and shred for variety of purposes. In many cases RDF production is the ultimate goal but it may also be volume reduction or recovery of valuable contents or reuse as raw material. Sometimes it is possibly to take care of the whole treatment process with one machine when a shredder that can do that is available. Sometimes a treatment line is needed after shredding. Each purpose and treatment process sets its requirements to the shredding itself and a versatile, flexible TANA shredder has proven its abilities in many different kinds of treatment processes and applications.
