New K3 V200 Hygienic Design Vibratory Feeder

The new K3 line of vibratory feeders are ideal for gentle handling of bulk solids materials. Vibratory feeders have proven best for feeding fragile ingredients and problem materials such as finished friable food products and ingredients, fibers and glass fibers. The vibratory feeders are also ideal for abrasive materials such as course powders and granules, and even sensitive products like uncoated tablets. The new design includes an improved high accuracy and innovative patent-pending drive technology, several quick change tray options for faster product changeover and a design suitable for pharmaceutical applications.

Coperion K-Tron SWB-600 Smart Weigh Belt

Smart Weigh Belt Feeder

Coperion K-Tron’s Smart Weigh Belt (SWB) feeder is used for continuous controlled gravimetric feeding of free-flowing or friable bulk materials. The feeder can be used for feeding or metering of bulk material flows in both batch and continuous applications. It 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 stability. The SWB feeder can be supplied in two different belt widths: 300 mm and 600 mm and are supplied as open or closed frame.

KT20 Twin Screw Loss-in-Weight Feeder

The Coperion K-Tron KT20 Twin Screw 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.

Electronic Pressure Compensation

The KT20 listed above will be equipped with Electronic Pressure Compensation (EPC). The main advantages of the EPC system include improved accuracy and reliability of the feeder as well as lower initial cost and easier installation compared to traditional mechanical pressure compensation systems. Coperion K-Tron presents a clever but simple electronic solution for accurate and steady pressure compensation in feeder hoppers and outlets. The modular design incorporates pressure sensors and electronics tailored to interact smoothly with Coperion K-Tron’s KCM feeder control system. Retrofitting options for existing feeders are available. EPC can be installed on a majority of Coperion K-Tron gravimetric feeders in almost any application and all industries.

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). 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. Therefore, these rotary valves can be readily inspected and also cleaned quickly and thoroughly, they are ideal for applications involving frequent changeovers from one product to another and/or for the processing of products with adhesive tendencies.
