In addition to pneumatic conveyors, Techmatic is also able to offer the full spectrum of mechanical conveyors including screw conveyors, bucket elevators and vibratory feeders. These are selected according to customer application and a big factor in the selection is the capital cost of the system as well as life cycle and maintenance costs. 90% of the equipment is designed and manufactured in-house.
Any issues on site (for example first hand feedback during commissioning and maintenance on issues such as component accessibility) are addresses immediately by the design office and where required modifications can be made without having to deal with sub-suppliers and invalidating guarantees. Any positive modifications are carried over to the standard equipment as an ongoing drive to improve maintainability and durability of the equipment
Often a combination of mechanical and pneumatic conveyors are used as a process solution
