The majority of our customers have requirements that are completely unique meaning that many of the standard machines we have historically designed and manufactured required moderations and very specific features exclusive to each application. Our history of always supplying our customers with the solution they require has enabled us to accumulate a detailed understanding of the engineering principles and techniques involved in the design of machines for a diverse range of materials. Using this in-house knowledge base, and our state-of-the-art powder tester and test plant, we are able to interpret results and more reliably predict how a material will behave. We are therefore able to provide a bespoke solution to optimise material flow and provide a screw conveyor with the precise features that will successfully complete the task required.

With the relatively new industries of waste recycling and unusual forms of biomass for power generation, this unique knowledge and experience has proved invaluable to many customers, enabling us to provide right first time solutions to their conveying requirements. Guttridge are also renowned for our exemplary aftersales service and support.

  • Animal feed and pet food – grain and other various complete feeds and ingredients
  • Biomass – wood chips, pellets, straw, miscanthus, 
  • Food and fine chemicals – ingredients, complete food flakes, powders and granules
