Trantec’s Metering Feeders offer optional quick-release, easy-clean features for rapid dis-assembly and re-assembly of your machine. Our metering feeders, or screw feeders are suited to all industries, particularly Food and Pharmaceutical, as down-time is kept to a minimum when cleaning between batches, essential for avoiding cross-contamination.
The removeable front cover is quickly detached by way of a clip at each side of the machine. This reveals the inside of the conditioning chamber which houses the independently driven agitator, used for breaking bridges that may form when metering non-free flowing materials. The agitator can be swiftly removed to reveal the auger screw underneath, which is also instantly removed. The unique design of Trantec’s metering feeders means the shaft seals can also be removed in a matter of seconds, exposing the shafts for cleaning.
Once all parts have been removed, the inside of the machine is quickly cleaned and a second set of parts is used to replace them. All-in-all down-time is kept to under 10 minutes and the used parts can then be placed in the dishwasher for sanitary cleaning. With only one or two moving parts, the auger screw and optional agitator, maintenance is kept to a minimum. This, along with our advanced design techniques means your metering feeder can run for longer.Click here for more information Trantec’s metering feeders Click here for related articles onlineFind manufacturers of feeders in our Equipment Guide
