Trantec’s Powder Samplers provide accurate, reliable specimens of powders and dry bulk solids. Consisting of just one moving component, the auger screw, Trantec Powder Samplers offer minimal maintenance. Their simplistic design means cost-effective construction is achieved with low power consumption as standard.

Auger samplers are widely used in dairy manufacturing processes. Typical applications will include milk powders or baby formula, with pharmaceutical manufacturers often using samplers as a part of their strict quality monitoring standards.

Trantec Powder Samplers

An automated sampling solution, Trantec’s Powder Samplers are designed using the latest in powder dosing technology equipped with our innovative 3D CAD (computer-aided design)/CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) construction techniques.

We can reproduce your existing system and auger or assist you in choosing the most appropriate set-up based on your material specifications. Trantec offers a free product testing and trials service available on all applications. 

Configured for the volumetric feeding of powders, samples can be continuous or as batches. Typical materials handled include powders, pellets, flakes, grains, and pills, suited to free-flowing materials. Additional features can be included to aid product flow where necessary. Most samplers, unless vacuum-based, will operate using the exact same working principles of that of screw conveyors.  

Trantec can manufacture your sampler in a selection of construction materials, including mild steel, 304, or 316 stainless steel with a variety of polish finishes to choose from. Our polish finishes are; welds as laid, standard, crevice-free, and mirror (0.2Ra).

Trantec operates stringent quality control methods and can provide full traceability of all our construction metals and plastics. For more information, please give us a call, or email us via our Contact Us page.
