Ajax Equipment has supplied Essentia Protein Solutions with a replacement stainless steel screw auger for a screw conveyor delivered by Ajax over 20 years ago.

“It’s a pleasure to pick up the phone to Ajax, on the one hand we can have a plain and open conversation about what I think I need, and then on the other, Ajax will suggest improvements that I hadn’t thought of. The example in this case is the level of finish on the replacement screw. By listening to their team I’ve improved my cleaning time just by having a more polished finish,” said Paul Setchell, factory manager at Essentia Protein Solutions.

Ajax Equipment, a solids handling company, has worked with Essentia on several projects, most recently on an inclined twin screw feeder to improve the handling of pork rinds through the protein producer's West Midlands factory.

“Working with teams such as Paul’s at Essentia who understand the long-term benefits of getting materials handling right brings is very gratifying," said Commenting, Ajax Equipment managing director, Eddie McGee." The high standards demanded by food processing also brings out the best in our production team who produced a very high quality of enhanced finish on the auger.”
