Our Story

Ever since 1971, Tana has been in the forefront of designing and manufacturing robust machinery for the purposes of solid waste management. With decades of experience on the needs and requirements of landfill and waste management operators, in the early 2000's Tana expanded its machine selection with the TANA Shark mobile shredders. The core design of the TANA Shark has remained the same throughout the years: a robust, single-shaft slow-speed shredder with enough torque to process even the toughest materials such as used tires or mattresses.

What separates TANA Shark from the competition is its versatility. The TANA Shark can process various different materials, allowing the user take full advantage of various waste streams. TANA Shark’s changeable screens make producing an end-product in various particle sizes easy. The Shark can do both pre-shredding as well as produce a homogeneous end-product – one Shark can replace even two machines!

Despite its robust construction the TANA Shark is also smart. Equipped with TANA’s state-of-the-art information management system TANA ProTrack®, the user of TANA Shark will be able to monitor and optimize their process. Additionally, TANA ProTrack® allows service personnel to monitor the machine in real-time, delivering fast and accurate service when necessary.
