Trantec Feeders Follow the British Tradition
It is said that the UK is no longer a manufacturing nation and, in many ways, that statement is correct; the motor industry and shipbuilding have all practically disappeared. But there are still companies who successfully sell the products that they manufacture in the UK, and one of the most successful is Trantec Solids Handling.
Trantec is based in Bacup, on the outskirts of Lancashire. The company recently moved into their new state-of-the-art, an eco-friendly business unit which not only provides more space but also strengthens the company’s presence within the bulk solids handling industry.
Trantec specialises in the design and manufacture of screw feeders. Not just limited to the food industry, Trantec’s screw feeders are also used in pharmaceutical and for the water treatment industry. Because of the different industries served by Trantec, every product can be manufactured from either mild steel or food-grade stainless steel.
Indeed, the range of feeders is impressive. Trantec’s M’ series machines are able to withstand different temperature changes and can process material with precision and accuracy. On top of this, are the quick-release, easy to clean features. Another innovation has been the design and manufacture of cartridge shaft seals, which are easy to remove and dispose of and are also compliant with GFPTFE.
Trantec also manufactures Volumetric and Gravimetric screw feeders. The latter comprises of integrated weighing base and control systems for added precision. What makes Trantec powder feeder machines unique is the fact that the entire device can be stripped and clean within 5 minutes. This allows even novice operators to clean the feeder without running into any problems.
Although Trantec designs and manufactures standard screw feeders, over the past few years the company has been increasingly called upon to customise the machines with additional add-ons and components that allow the machines to provide even more solutions and options for customers.
While other companies have moved their manufacturing facilities overseas, Trantec has kept its UK manufacturing base and, at the same time, enjoyed a first-class reputation for quality and innovation.
