In this blog, we answer a few of the most frequent questions about TANA machines and how can a TANA improve your landfill recycling business.

What is Tana?

Tana exports and has sales and service functions in more than 50 countries in five different continents. The company is based in Finland and all our products are designed and manufactured in Finland. 

How can a TANA improve your landfill / recycling business?

All our products aim at providing you maximum efficiency and profit so that your waste management business can thrive. TANA machines are designed with skill and experience using the best components and materials. All our machines come with smart solutions for optimising the operations and processes. 

TANA Shredders

TANA Shark shredders have unique versatility. They can shred anything but steel, stones and concrete. They are particularly good for RDF/SRF production and cost-efficient treatment of tires, ragger wire, plastics and C&D waste. They also shred a wide variety of special materials. The versatility means that one TANA Shark can replace two or even three machines in your process. 

With TANA Shark’s shredding power and the over-band magnet, you can better separate materials for recycling and reuse, which gives you extra income. You get a higher-quality end-product, as the machine with its built-in screen produces a homogenous particle size even in one pass. Once shred, the material takes up less space in storage and transportation, saving you money. 

TANA Landfill Compactors 

TANA landfill compactors are the first purpose-built compactors in the world. The stand-out features of the structure are the two full width drums and the rigid, non-oscillating frame. They result in better compaction and higher waste treatment capacity with lower operating costs and in fewer passes.  

We are so certain about the machine’s unparalleled compaction ability that Tana has a compaction guarantee. If a trial doesn’t prove a minimum of 10% better compaction rate compared to the previous machines, we’ll take the machine back. 

TANA Wind Sifter

TANA Wind sifter is manufactured in co-operation with Norditek AB in Umeå, Sweden. TANA wind sifter VS1220 separates light from heavy materials for further reuse or recycling. Multiple adjustment and customisation options enable use for wide variety of input materials.

TANA Disc Screen

The TANA X553T disc screen is the most versatile screening solution and able to screen almost everything with minimal clogging. With its easy adjustability and unique intelligence the screening process can easily be optimized based on materials, feeding methods and other process requirements. Modular screening deck design takes adjustability to the next level since it can be easily configured for two or three fraction screening based on your needs.
