Matpro named Ecostar dealer

MATPRO Machinery has been appointed as the exclusive distributor in the UK and Ireland for Ecostar equipment.

Matpro said the Italian-based manufacturer is synonymous with the “most advanced technology in the mechanical separation of waste”.

The Ecostar range includes a mobile screener (Hextra), a compact modular static screener (Hexact) and an extractor hood that works in tandem with the Hexact to remove light materials and dust from the waste stream (Hextractor).

As the name suggests, the environment is a major factor for Ecostar. The firm’s range of equipment uses Dynamic Disc Screening patented technology to “revolutionise” the standards of screening equipment, Matpro added. Their screeners also feature a patented anti-wrapping technology to allow for continuous flow of material over the deck, without long fibrous waste becoming ‘wrapped’.

Ecostar is the latest addition to the Matpro portfolio, which also includes Haas Recycling, Steelweld, Weima and Nihot.

Ben McQuaid, director of Matpro Machinery said, “The Ecostar brand and their range of equipment is a great addition to our existing offering. The Ecostar range of screeners can satisfy a wide range of sizing requirements, as well as adding value in other areas such as energy consumption and footprint.

“The versatility of the Ecostar machines is what really stood out to us, as many of our customers process various waste streams. This coupled with the eco-friendly and compact nature of the machines will make them very attractive to the market. We are not giving customers another option, we are giving them an alternative.”

Ecostar sales director Filippo Cappozzo added, “We are proud to announce this collaboration with Matpro, and we strongly believe they are the right partner for us. Ecostar is committed to producing innovative disc screen machines that, thanks to the revolutionary and patented Dynamic Disc Screening technology, ensure professional and economic benefits to customers.”
