Coperion K-Tron SWB Smart Weigh Belt Feeder

Ask the Expert: Why Two Weigh Decks are Better Than One

In this video, Stuart Wilson, Director of Sales for Food & Pharmaceuticals at Coperion K-Tron explains the unique option of the Smart Weigh Belt (SWB) feeder to include a secondary weigh deck and describes the benefits of this design.

Weigh belt feeders are used in a variety of food applications from feeding raw ingredients into the process, to feeding products into packaging lines or metering fragile products, such as pet food kibble, directly to coating lines.  

The Coperion K-Tron Smart Weigh Belt feeders have the unique option of including a second weighbridge, which provides continuous online taring and is ideal for materials which may leave residue or buildup on the weigh belt during feeding. 

This short video explains in more detail the optional auto-tare operation, and shows how two weigh bridges can definitely be better than one for both metering accuracy as well as product quality.
