Munchy Appoints New UK & Ireland Sales Manager

Munchy is pleased to announce the appointment of Graham Henstock as the new Sales Manager for the UK & Ireland.

An engineer by profession, Graham has over 20 years technical engineering sales experience and will be responsible for both the Boston Matthews range of Extruders, Downstream Equipment Ranges and Complete Turn-Key Extrusion Lines as well as the Munchy Range of Recycling Systems.

Boston Matthews & Munchy Managing Director Simon Brookes stated "We are delighted to have Graham on board where he will provide the necessary technical sales support for our wide range of customers in the UK & Ireland.”

The Worcester based company design and manufacture Extruders, Downstream Equipment and Complete Extrusion Lines. Since 2002 with the purchase of Munchy the company also design and manufacture machinery for the recycling of plastics into re-useable 1st class pellets.

New High Output Munchy Air

Plastics recycling machinery manufacturer Munchy is pleased to announce the introduction of a new high output air recycling machine.

The Munchy 150 Air is capable of reprocessing scrap plastics into high quality pellets at up to 150 Kg/hr (330 lb/hr). The pellets can then be re-used in the main production operation.

Using Munchy’s Dual-Diameter Screw Technology the scrap plastic material is not subjected to any unnecessary thermal degradation normally associated with a size reduction operation allowing for air cooling to be performed at higher outputs. The direct feeding onto the screw also ensures a higher quality of pellet is produced allowing for a greater percentage to be used back into the main production operation increasing cost savings and efficiency.

The Munchy 150 Air is designed to be compact with simple, low cost operation. Direct Drive AC Technology reduces energy consumption whilst reducing operating noise levels and routine maintenance. The machine has been designed so that all routine maintenance can be carried out by the operator which eliminates the need for expensive maintenance personnel and downtime waiting for assistance.

Munchy Managing Director Simon Brookes stated "Air as a cooling method is preferred over Water pelletising systems because it reduces the machine footprint and overall is a "cleaner” more simple operation. Machine clean down is easier and quicker so the ability to switch materials without the risk of cross contamination is made easier.”
