Due to strict legislation there are certain requirements that are put into place.
All Trantec pharmaceutical screw feeders are manufactured from 316 stainless steel and are welded with a ground crevice-free or mirror (0.2Ra) finish to ensure a contamination-free process be in place.
You can find out more by visiting our screw meter feeder section on our website.
Pharmaceutical Augers have to be produced with careful precision and accuracy so they meet the requirements and have a polished finish.
Sometimes there are cases where fabricated augers can suffer from defects; this is why we manufacturer pharmaceutical augers in stainless steel with helicoid flights welded onto a central core.
Sometimes fabricated augers can suffer from several of the following problems.
Why Stainless Steel?
The stainless steel resists this corrision and forms a thin passive film – chromium oxide.
Trantec’s Solution to these problems
Trantec manufacturered augers do not suffer from these problems, as not only do our augers not require any welding but there is very little, if any, straightening required for post production.
