Pump the Unpumpable!Screw Feeder Pump Systems
Process, pump & extrude bulk solids & other high viscosity media.
Solutions for butter blocks, shortening cubes, thick pastes & high viscosity fillings.
Our pumps & screw feeders are used by many food producers in the UK, Europe, North America & Asia including respected brands like:
Let our screw feeder pump machines improve your production
Achieve consistent and repeatable results regardless of temperature, seasonal changes and other variables.
Reduce mixing and / or melting times and eliminate waste batches by eradicating lumps and unmixed ingredients.
Protect employees by minimising manual handling and outdated methods of weighing and portioning.
How our screw feeder pump machine can improve your current production tasks
Reduce manual handling & avoid manual Cutting
Remove the need to melt or temper fats before use
Protect mixers, reduce mixing time, remove lumps
Pump directly into mixer bowl or tank via pipework
How do you process and pump solid, semi-solid & high viscosity food ingredients?
- Is working with heavy solids or viscous ingredients a major headache for you?
- Are you risking injury by using knives to cut blocks of fat or other hard materials?
- Do your mixers take too long and regularly fail as they struggle to break down tough ingredients that they were never designed to handle?
- Are batches being wasted because of inconsistencies or lumps & corners in the final mix?
- Are you wasting time, energy and space with temperature controlled tempering areas?
We saw these everyday concerns in many food production scenarios and that’s why we developed the ultimate hygienic screw feeder & pump solution!

Frequently Asked Questions
Find answers to the most commonly asked questions about screw feeders and pumps.
What is a screw feeder / auger feeder?
A screw feeder (auger feeder) is a modular machine that positively feeds bulk solids and non-flowing viscous materials into the suction port of a high viscosity pump.
Our screw feeders typically use a pair of screws (augers) to move and progress product towards the pump inlet.
What can I do with a screw feeder?
A screw feeder enables you to pump bulk viscous materials that cannot be pumped using conventional pumps alone.
How do you clean a screw feeder?
The system can be cleaned either in-place or can easily be wheeled to a wash bay.
Strip-cleaning the machine is quick and easy using hot water & standard stainless-steel cleaning chemicals.
The screws (augers) are easily removed using the included removal trolley. The pump front cover can be removed to allow flushing / cleaning out of the internal pumping chambers around the rotors.
