New pharma feeder at this year’s Interphex

Coperion K-Tron is extremely proud to announce the development of a completely new pharmaceutical feeder design.

We have already announced this innovation in our previous newsletter. Learn more about our new pharma feeders and visit us at Interphex 2018 (April 17-19, 2018, Javits Convention Center, New York, NY, USA, Booth 2261), where we will exhibit this highly accurate feeding solution.

The new Coperion K-Tron pharma feeders are ideal for both batch and continuous applications. The innovative design includes a new modular feeder and scale concept which allows for quick exchange between twin screw configurations QT20 and QT35 and even single screw QS60 designs.

The overall concept is specifically designed for quick cleaning and disassembly, requiring only a matter of seconds to disconnect the feeder bowl, agitator, feed screws and hopper assembly from the gearbox. At the same time, the new compact design makes this feeder line ideal for multi-feeder clustering in a variety of continuous processes.

New additional features include the optional  turntable and rail mount supports to provide even easier access to the feeders.

The new design of the pharma feeders also makes it ideal for glovebox or isolator integration, such as required in batch dispensing or micronization applications. Further design work for the new feeder and glovebox integration as well as compact integrated refill systems is currently underway.
