Pharmaceutical Loss-In-Weight Feeders

The new K3-PH line of feeders features a modular concept complete with a drastically reduced overall footprint thanks to a new, smaller D4 platform scale incorporating the patented and highly accurate Smart Force Transducer (SFT) weighing technology. The modular quick change design allows the easy exchange of feeder types and sizes as well as hoppers or agitators using the same scale and drive for fast adaptation to new processes and formulations while also ensuring easy cleaning and maintenance. The new design is ideal for multi feeder clustering in a variety of continuous processes, including direct compression (CDC), continuous extrusion, wet and dry granulation, and continuous coating, as well as traditional batch processes.

ZRD Hygienic Rotary Valve

Coperion's ZRD sanitary rotary valves are used in pneumatic conveying systems and for the discharge of powdered and granular materials. The certified versions of the ZRD series of rotary valves are equipped with the innovative and service-proven FXS (Full Access System), which enables easy withdrawal of the rotor, as both end plates can be swung out through an angle of more than 90°, making the interior of the rotary valve fully accessible. The withdrawn rotor can then be readily detached from the end plate.

WZK Two-Way Diverter Valve

The Coperion WZK dual channel diverter valve is specially designed for powders and granular products. The unit has an asymmetric design with approximately 35° angle suitable for distributing and collecting in pneumatic conveying lines and in gravity applications. The WZK is Coperion’s original world-wide top selling diverter valve.

The WZK is designed to have an explosion pressure shock proof: 10 bar(g) [145 psi(g)], due to heavy duty design, pressure assisted seals and with an operation temperature up to 100°C [212°F]

Twin Screw LIW Feeder K-CL-SFS-KT20

The Coperion K-Tron Twin Screw KT20 Feeder with interchangeable feeding tools is mounted on a 24 kg fully enclosed platform scale for high accuracy feeding of difficult flowing ingredients including additives, probiotics and flavors. All feeder parts in contact with the material being fed are stainless steel, and feeding equipment is easy to disassemble. A horizontal agitator gently moves the bulk material to the large throat and then into the screws. The feeder can be used for both LIW feeding to continuous processes and LIW batching direct to batch blenders. Twin screw feeders are ideal for floodable powders and more difficult, sticky or poorly flowing materials, as well as fibers or flakes. Specialty designs are available for clustering of feeders above extruders, blenders and other processes for optimal accessibility and ease of cleaning.

Coperion-K-Tron-P-Series-Receivers

P-Series Vacuum Receiver Family

The Coperion K-Tron P-Series Central Receivers are ideal for applications with a higher degree of sanitary requirements. They are designed to provide solutions for difficult conveying applications for the food industry and meets 3A Dairy sanitary requirements. The Coperion K-Tron P-Series sanitary receivers can be used for gain-in-weight or loss-in-weight feeder refill applications, simple up and in systems or engineered for larger, central vacuum conveying systems. 

On display will be the P10 Vacuum-Sequencing Central Receiver.

Coperion K-Tron SWB-600 Smart Weigh Belt

Smart Weigh Belt Feeder

Coperion K-Tron’s Smart Weigh Belt (SWB) feeder offers optional continuous online auto tare by using two Smart Force Transducer III digital weigh modules. Automatic and continuous online taring of the belt reduces costly maintenance, line shutdowns and laborious manual calibration and improves long term accuracy. The SWB feeder can be supplied in two different belt widths: 300 mm and 600 mm. The mass and volume flow rate is strongly dependent on the bulk density, the maximum allowable height of the bulk solid on the belt and the belt speed. By utilizing different control software, the Smart Weigh Belt can be used to feed material into a batch system.

Modular Cartridge Bin Vent (MCBV)

The Coperion K-Tron Modular Cartridge Bin Vent provides excellent air filtration of fine airborne particles from within a storage tank and releases clean air to the atmosphere. While material is pneumatically conveyed into a storage tank, fine particles and air are efficiently separated by the unit’s large cartridge filter. This enables clean air to pass from the tank out to the atmosphere. Reverse jet cleaning from a compressed air accumulator pulses the cartridge filter, dislodging any fines and returning them to the storage tank.
