Coperion K-Tron volumetric feeders are often used in simplified gain-in-weight (GIW) applications for the controlled batch dispensing and weighing of pharmaceutical powders. Dispensing is often a step in a variety of processes including centrifuge and filter dryer discharge, batching directly into IBC’s (Intermediate Bulk Containers), hoppers or drums, and batch ingredient dispensing directly into batch blenders and reactors. In the pharmaceutical industry the batched ingredients often include potent compounds, resulting in the need for a batching device that can be easily contained to eliminate any exposure of the product to the operator or to the environment.
