Spiral conveyor

With the clamping ring connection, the conveyor can be connected to any feed container or e.g. a silo outlet. Depending on the type of material, different spiral types are used.

The plug-in variant

With the plug-in version of our spiral conveyor, it is possible to convey directly from a suction nozzle, for example. This model can also be connected directly to a side grinder.

Combination with discharge device

If your bulk material does not flow freely to the spiral conveyor, this device combination is used. The conveyor spiral is supplied with material by the discharge device. A suitable spiral design then ensures smooth transport.

multi-point funding

The multi-station variant is used to feed a series of machine hoppers with the same material mixture. Due to the use of only one conveyor motor, this loading variant is very energy-efficient.

Dosing devices for small throughputs

The transitube® micro dosing devices are used wherever the smallest quantities (of e.g. master batches) are to be dosed directly on the machine. In addition to the rotary feeder, models with spiral feed or a "mini version" of our proven discharge system for poorly flowing materials are also available.
Of course, these devices are also available as a gravimetric version! Learn more

Dosing combination with discharge device

The dosing solution for poorly flowing / bridging materials. With the discharge technology specially designed for the transitube® spiral conveyor, even the most difficult materials can be handled reliably and volumetrically dosed with great accuracy.

For fine dosing, please note the ZFP-Micro version!

Learn more

Feed/Dosing combinations

The solution for dosing 2 or more components (e.g. new material, recycling material and additive) with a higher throughput. Free-flowing materials can also be combined with bridging materials.

The special advantage: The conveying system takes care of the mixing by means of a spiral!

Learn more

gravimetric solutions

Our devices can also be operated gravimetrically, from gravimetric batch dosing systems for high throughput rates to small precision dosing systems. The type of weighing used (additive or loss-in-weight) is determined by the respective application.

conical feed bins

Our conical feed containers can be used as bag feeders, big bag feeders or as intermediate containers for material that flows easily to moderately. Various designs and sizes are available.

Discharge devices

Our material feed or dosing solution for poorly flowing or bridging materials. With the discharge technology specially designed for the transitube® spiral conveyor, even the most difficult materials can be handled reliably and volumetrically dosed with great accuracy.
