Ajax enhances materials handling at Hubron International
Solids handling equipment maker, Ajax Equipment, has supplied leading black masterbatch producer, Hubron International, with an inclined screw feeder to transfer difficult raw materials. Ajax has previously supplied Hubron International with a range of solids handling equipment including screw feeders, hoppers and three FIBC big bag dischargers over multiple investment projects.
The new screw feeder features Ajax’s LynFlow™ ribbon blades in Abrazo, a wear resistant steel, to ensure excellent auger service life in a demanding application. The auger’s variable pitch design ensures the poor flowing material is effectively driven up the feeder’s incline.
Commenting, Craig Hodgkinson, operations director at Hubron International said, “As usual Ajax provided us with a new unit in a professional and timely manner, having experienced great service life from the previously installed screw feeder.”
“Developing collaborative working relationships with our customers has been one the keys to Ajax’s success over the past 50 years. Working with Hubron again and again enables us to draw upon the company’s feedback as well as the valuable design insight gained from previously conducted powder testing,” says Eddie McGee, managing director, Ajax Equipment.
