“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 Solution

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.

Trantec Solution
