The TXF Tubular Screw Conveyors and Feeders have been specially designed to meet the requirements of the food industry.
Manufactured from stainless steel, this screw conveyor line offers a high grade of surface finishing. Manufacture of fabricated components is carried out on machines that guarantee a perfectly smooth surface which is why material residue is reduced to the minimum.
The TXF Tubular Screw Conveyors and Feeders are made up of a tubular trough equipped with inlet and outlet spout, an end plate at each tube end, helicoid screw flighting continuously welded on a centre pipe with drive shaft coupling bush, a drive end bearing assembly complete with air or gas-purged shaft seal, as well as a tube cover plate complete with screw fixing quick pin coupling locator for support of the screw at the end opposite the drive unit. Furthermore, TXF Screws are equipped with a gear motor appropriate for the application.
TXF Tubular Screw Conveyors and Feeders are suitable for applications in which any contamination of the material handled has to be strictly avoided and where absolute cleanliness and perfect resistance to corrosion are required.
The TXF series is the state-of-the-art solution for the food industry. Traceability of all manufactured components and materials is ensured by certification according to European Regulation (EC) No. 1935/2004.
TXF Screw Conveyors and Feeders are optionally available with ATEX, Zone 22 or Zone 21 certification.
