Why might you need to request replacement UHMWPE tubing?
Tube worn out: Typically caused by general wear and tear, foreign objects entering and causing internal damage, high levels of damp, or unusually cohesive materials being handled.
Damaged by human error: Generally caused by the insufficient care of equipment.
Trantec’s UHMWPE conveying tubes are for use in conjunction with Flexible Screw Conveyors. Our conveying tubes are manufactured from ultra-high molecular weight polyethene (commonly shortened to UHMWPE, or UHMW), chosen for its food grade approval, superior quality, and outstanding chemical, abrasion, and wear resistance properties.
UHMWPE is the go-to material for manufacturers of materials handling equipment worldwide due to its uncompromised quality and cost-effective manufacturing. All Trantec UHMWPE conveying tubes are manufactured to meet all current USA, EU, and UK food contact legislation, with complete sanitary solutions available upon request.
All Trantec’s UHMWPE tubes are designed with a super smooth, easy-clean outer finish. Our tubes boast high wear resistance and durability, instilling confidence of a long-lasting product. Their increase in strength allows for Trantec’s conveying tubes to last longer than standard UHMWPE tubing, a benefit that we maintain our quality standard across all batches.
All construction materials and parts are subject to intense quality control using IS9001 compatible procedures, with our spiral augers and conveying tubes manufactured under IS9001 certified environments. We can offer advice and full traceability on all our chosen construction materials. Trantec can advise on the pros and cons of each and offer advice on which would be best suited to your application.
Our UHMWPE tubing is completely compatible across all Flexible Screw Conveyors. For bespoke sizing, Trantec can request tubing to be manufactured according to your specifications. In most cases, no alterations will be required and our conveyor tube will be completely ready to install right away.
Feel free to call us if you have any questions in regards to this. Our friendly team of engineers are here to assist with your application and are ready for any challenge we might face.
