The new model has been especially designed to protect downstream equipment from blockages, meeting discharge requirements in sludge/fat processing. "Downstream process requirements have changed due to the increasing installation of finer inlet screens, resulting in reduced particles and solids loading within the sludge treatment process," said Ian Hallows, business manager for Waste-Tec products at Mono.

The Muncher features a trash trap, inclined cutter stack and pull-back design. The cutters can be specified to either 8.0 mm, 5.5 mm and 3.0 mm thickness to match particle size.
