Trantec and the Plastics Industries

Trantec has been providing a range of materials handling equipment to the Plastic industry, for over two decades. Our range of Metering Screw Feeders, Flexible Screw Conveyors, and Augers are commonly used in plastics extrusion manufacturing facilities. 

Our Metering Screw Feeders will often handle raw plastic materials such as polymers, additives, fillers, and glass fibres. Any Metering Feeder will typically handle plastic pellets, granules, flakes, and powder additives. Often, multiple screw feeders are operated at once as feed rates must be consistent to ensure a quality end-product is achieved. Below are the typical plastic extrusion materials used:  

  • PVCu – Polyvinyl Chloride Un-plasticised.
  • PVC – Polyvinyl Chloride.
  • ABS – Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene.
  • HIP – High Impact Polystyrene.
  • WPC – Wood Plastic Composite.
  • PE – Polyethylene.
  • PP – Polypropylene.
  • PVC – Polyvinyl Chloride.
  • PVC/NBR – Nitrile Butadiene Rubber/PVC blend.
  • TPE – Thermoplastic Elastomers.
  • PPE – Poly(P-Phenylene Oxide).
