New Efficient Solution for Simple Feeding Applications: ProRate PLUS Feeder Line
Coperion K-Tron will be introducing a representative of the new ProRate PLUS feeder line at the show. This new gravimetric feeder line is a dependable, high-performance and efficient solution for feeding pellets and other free-flowing bulk materials in plastics applications, offering a good price-performance ratio as well as short lead times. The ProRate PLUS single screw feeders can be installed as individual units or in groupings of up to six feeders around a single process intake, depending upon the recipe. Its unique design enables very compact, space-saving configuration so that up to six feeders can be grouped together within a radius of 1.5 meters around one extruder intake. The three feeder models — PLUS-S, PLUS-M and PLUS L — cover a broad spectrum of feeder performance. Depending upon the material, the ProRate PLUS feeder can achieve rates of 3.3 to up to 4800 dm3/h. This line of feeders distinguishes itself with simple assembly and easy access for cleaning and servicing purposes.
Broad Product Portfolio for Appropriate Feeding Solutions
Along with the ProRate PLUS line, Coperion K-Tron will be showing two more representatives from their broad product portfolio. The extremely precise K3-CL-SFS-V100 vibratory loss-in-weight feeder with a one-of-a-kind, patent-pending drive system and an advanced control unit achieves a level of precision that is 35% higher on average than that of conventional models. Vi-bratory feeders are ideal for gentle handling of a variety of materials, including brittle, abrasive materials, products with irregular forms and glass fibers.
For the ever-increasing demands of continuous processes in the pharmaceutical industry, Coperi-on K-Tron is showing its K3-PH-ML-D4-QT20 pharma feeder with the P10 vacuum sequencing sanitary receiver. Thanks to the trapezoid scale shape and significantly smaller footprint, the K3 pharma loss-in-weight feeder line is optimized for multi-feeder clusters around a process inlet. Furthermore, the modular construction simplifies and accelerates cleaning and servicing. The twin screw feeders are available in two sizes, QT20 and QT35. The P-Series vacuum sequencing con-veyors and central receivers are intended for a broad palette of bulk materials and fulfill the strict hygienic requirements of the food and pharmaceutical industries.
