AJAX EQUIPMENT moves into its fourth decade providing innovative and practical solutions to the Bulk Solids Handling Industry. The Bolton based company supplies solids handling and processing equipment internationally to the pharmaceutical, confectionery, food, chemical and many other industries.|
The principle activity of AJAX is the design and manufacture of screw based equipment supplemented by a wide range of accessories and systems, with emphasis on the reliable flow of solids in storage, feeding, handling and processing applications.
The team at AJAX comprises of experienced technical and design personnel supported by a highly skilled workforce that manufacture all its equipment. The evaluation of all clients’ requirements is based on a thorough understanding of the principles of powder and bulk material properties. In-house test laboratories include facilities for characterising and measuring the slip and flow related properties of the bulk solids. AJAX provides all its clients with comprehensive design drawings to the highest standards using the latest CAD technology.
Over the last twelve months AJAX has designed, developed and secured major orders for UK and overseas pharmaceutical industries. This is in addition to the world-wide success generated by the ‘AJAX Continuous Mixer’ used to mix a recently launched and highly successful cereal bar. The principle feature of our ‘Continuous Mixer’ is the ability to produce a homogenous mixture of ingredients using friable constituents. Recently customers have successfully mixed crisp and fudge pieces, which required working with
viscous pastes to secure an even dissipation. The mixer is also suitable to meet the processing needs of a wide range of industries.
AJAX has a comprehensive test centre, which includes a variety of feeders, conveyors, mixers and innovative devices to promote flow. These facilities are available to clients who can also hire equipment for on-site testing.|
Although AJAX has been in business for over thirty years, it has never stood still. It has advanced and embraced new technologies to improve its service to industry. It is a leading company in technical education, regularly contributes to seminars and conferences, and has written books on Screw Feeders and Segregation. Strong contacts with educational and research establishments have actively developed a unique ’State of the Art’ approach to powder handling technology. Steady and consolidated growth has established a firm foundation for the future. New staff have recently been recruited to reinforce the technical team and new additional premises allow for future expansion.
AJAX has a wide customer base and future company growth will come from a combination of continued product innovation and adherence to quality design and manufacture for top equipment performance. This, together with our focus on service excellence ensures a high level of continued customer satisfaction in support of its mission to provide a world leading service to the Bulk Solids Handling Industry.
