“We contacted Trantec to supply an FIBC hanging frame and a screw conveyor as we needed to integrate a new station into our existing three station blending system. The team at Trantec worked with us to deliver the project within the required time frame despite the difficulties everyone has faced during the Covid-19 lockdown. The additional station allows us to be far more flexible when optimising our blends.”
Trantec were tasked with producing a repeat of the ‘’bulk bag’’ FIBC stations already on site. It was essential to maintain commonality with elements of the current system to ease operator and maintenance training. We quickly understood the customer requirements but suggested a ‘’split frame’’ design to make assembly on-site easier with minimum lifting equipment. The mainframe was fabricated in two sections- upper and lower, which made the installation possible using existing lifting equipment.

We contacted Trantec to supply a Sack tip station for product supply on a multi head filling system for production of powder cleaning products. Output up to 45bottles per min at 500g . The team at Trantec worked with us to deliver the project within the required time frame despite the difficulties everyone has faced during the Covid-19 lockdown. The sack tip station allows us to fill the packing line with far less operator actions.
Trantec were tasked to produce a system to allow us to empty 25kg sacks at floor level and convey up to the bottle filler feeding the packing line. We quickly understood the customer requirements but suggested a sack tip design to enable them to operate at floor level with minimum climbing . The system had to fit in a small room with little area to work in but the Trantec design made the installation a lot easier.

Trantec supplied a customised system to mate with the Ceramics companies existing rigid bin system, we quickly understood the customer requirements and suggested a two way diverter valve design to enable them to fill the tablet press hoppers, the material being used was a difficult one with poor flowing characteristics which required agitation and vibration. The system was quickly installed and put into production.
