At Trantec, we design and manufacture Metering Screw Feeders (also known as Volumetric Feeders, Auger Feeders, Metering Feeders – just to name a few!).

We understand that it is just as important for the machine to suit the application as it is when selecting bulk handling equipment, so we offer tailored solutions and customisations upon request.

Our Single Screw Feeders are best suited for your free-flowing materials, such as granular solids (pellets, powders, grains, etc.) due to its simplistic design. This particular product is designed to meter all materials at a constant, accurate and controllable rate.

  • Hopper – also known as a Conditioning Chamber or Trough.
  • A Slow Rotation Agitator.
  • An Auger – or Screw.
  • Variable control settings – control to suit your application.

Agitator Specification: 

  • A Ribbon Flight Agitator – Used to continually sweep the internal surfaces, which in turn will eliminate bridging materials.

Other flights and variations are available upon request, depending on the specification of your product.
