The containment feeder design features a modular concept and drastically reduced overall footprint with the addition of integrated split butterfly valves at both the inlet and discharge.
In addition, specialty filtration is included for venting as well as a specialized feeder bowl to hopper flange connection for high containment levels. Additional features such as retractable spray balls can be added to ensure complete wet-in-place cleaning. The combination of Coperion K-Tron’s high accuracy D4 scale with its fast reacting KCM control module ensure the highest accuracy even when feeding the most difficult to handle pharmaceutical ingredients. The K3-PH high containment feeder modules are ideal for feeding at rates of 0.013-2012 dm3/h (0.005–71.1 ft3/h).
