Shredding end of life tyres in one pass
End-of-life tyres for cars, trucks, aircraft and heavy-duty vehicles are among the most problematic and difficult waste types to recycle. Impossible for other shredders with the same fuel efficiency and capacity, TANA high-torque shredders make it possible to shred tyres to a very homogeneous 80 mm (3″) particle size in just one pass and separate most of the metals during the shredding process. An overband magnet separates most of the metal wires directly from the shredded material flow on the conveyor. Once separated, shredded tyres and metals can be sold and reused in many ways.
Instead of tearing the tyres, the TANA Shark cuts them almost like very efficient scissors. The particle size can be adjusted by changing the counter-knife setting on the side door and choosing a suitable rotor screen. The bigger the particle size, the higher the capacity. By using the operating program for tyres, the machine automatically adjusts itself to the optimal level, thereby protecting the machine and optimizing operating costs.
