Innovative mass-flow feeders

Transmin is the exclusive authorised Australian distributor of the Yoshikawa range of circle feeders throughout Australia. Yoshikawa Corporation was established in 1954 in Sendai City, Kagoshima, Japan. Today the company has grown to become the world-wide leader in circle feeder technology.


Circle feeders are a highly innovative and effective alternative to traditional belt feeders, screw feeders and rotary valves. Thanks to their circular motion, they guarantee consistent draw-down of materials – ensuring ‘first-in, first-out’, whilst removing the risk of material ‘bridging’ and segregation – including both sticky and free-flowing materials. They also allow the potential for multiple material inlet/outlet points.


The result for many clients is a more efficient, more flexible handling operation that experiences reduced material wastage and spoiling, a more reliable flow, and improved space-saving efficiency. All of which can have a positive impact on the bottom-line.


Yoshikawa Corporation manufactures circle feeders for virtually any commodity or material – from coal, to powdered chemicals, from food, to feathers, from shredded tyres to wood-chips. Each feeder is engineered to the specific attributes of the material being handled, with feeder diameters ranging from 30cm through to 4m.
