Cost Effective Spares Service

With Trantec dispelling claims from OEMs that alternative spare parts would not operate with their powder handling systems, we have since noticed an increasing number of businesses finally waking up from the myth!

Whilst we understand that many end users would prefer to use spare parts directly supplied by their OEM, we must reiterate the fact that there is nothing special about the UHMWPE tubing or spiral augers that they use. Trantec spares are a like-for-like replacement and share all the key features and benefits of the OEM’s spiral and tubes, but without the hefty premium on top.

History of Trantec

Starting life as a small, family-run business, Trantec was founded in 1997 with firm objective of supplying robust, high-quality powder handling solutions at an affordable and fair price.

In our first year, we manufactured our first Volumetric Screw Feeder. Along with our Metering Feeders, we also specialise in conveying solutions. Trantec has designed and manufactured Flexible Screw Conveyors and their spare parts for businesses since we first opened doors. Our Gravimetric Feeder followed shortly after with Trantec’s Loss in Weight Screw Feeder entering the market in 1998.
