How Trantec Serves The Pharmaceutical Industry

At Trantec, our engineers hold extensive knowledge within the pharmaceutical industry and work closely with every client to ensure our screw feeders meet their requirements. Our pharmaceutical feeder range includes volumetric, gravimetric and micro-metering screw feeders, which are frequently used to dose powders, pellets, flakes, grain and granular materials. 

Trantec pharmaceutical feeders have an enhanced hygienic design, manufactured from 316 stainless steel, with removable parts that are autoclave friendly and feature a quick-release mechanism that enables full, rapid dismantling of our machines without the use of tools. In addition, our pharmaceutical feeders have a highly polished finish with welds crevice-free throughout and include platinum cure blue metal detectable silicone gaskets. All equipment is manufactured in-house, including the PTFE and GFPTFE shaft seals and the stainless steel auger screw to ensure our equipment is at the utmost of standards.

Pharmaceutical Grade Auger Screws

Trantec not only manufactures screw feeders but also has a separate division dedicated to manufacturing bespoke and replacment Pharmaceutical grade augers for all brands of feeders, filling machines and other dosing machines. For more information, please visit www.augers.co.uk,

Our pharmaceutical-grade auger screws have an easy-clean, crevice-free finish and are typically manufactured from solid bar stock of 316/316L (1.4401/1.4404) stainless steel, therefore highly robust and capable of withstanding harsh and corrosive applications. All machined components are are designed to a high technical specification on advanced 3D CAD (computer-aided design) software and produced with careful precision on advanced CNC (computer numerical control) machinery, using techniques that adopt “aerospace” engineering methods.
