About Trantec...

Trantec Solids Handling Limited is a leading manufacturer of Materials Handling Equipment, more specifically of machinery aimed at metering, dosing, and filling applications.

Our products can be found in operation worldwide, with customers ranging from small businesses, universities, and local manufacturers, to blue-chip firms and multinationals (including many household names).

With fine-tuned design and accuracy at the forefront of product development, Trantec’s Metering Screw Feeders, Powder Samplers, and Flexible Screw Conveyors offer handling solutions for a wide range of dry bulk solids and powders.

Our flexible auger conveyors often combined with our Metering Feeders to provide a complete handling solution. A conveyor will typically transport powders from storage or tipping facilities, such as FIBC dischargers, sack tip stations or storage hoppers, to the powder screw feeder which is refilled automatically.

Trantec is a member of both the BSI (British Standards Institute) and the East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce and operates stringent quality control methods, instilling further confidence in our high-quality powder handling systems.

Trantec's History...

Our first Volumetric Feeder was launched in 1997. The following year, we released our first Loss in Weight Screw Feeder.

Since then, we have continued to do what we do best; design robust, modular, and exceptional machinery. Adding the newest and most innovative features to our powder feeders, our prime focus is to meet the needs of the constantly evolving solids handling industry.   

Trantec’s range of materials handling solutions was specifically developed for the food and pharmaceutical industries, recognising their specific needs and unique legislation.

Our ‘Enhanced Range’ includes GMP (good manufacturing practice) elements, unique easy-clean features, and metal detectable components throughout.
