Design Features

C_QC_screws

The Coperion K-Tron Quick Change Feeder allows switching between a feed bowl with single screw and a feed bowl with twin screws within minutes, enabling one feeding station to handle a huge variety of materials. Furthermore, while the removed feed bowl and screw(s) are being cleaned, the replacement bowl and screw(s) can continue feeding.

Whereas single screw feeding elements are ideal for handling free flowing powders, granules, pellets and other nonflooding materials, they often don't work very well with many of the more difficult-to-handle materials. Twin screw elements employing two self-wiping, closed-flight screws, intermeshed side by side, efficiently transport floodable powders as well as sticky or otherwise hard-to-flow materials to the discharge.

Maximum flexibility for the QC-Feeder is derived from the combination of the available T35 and S60 screw feeder configurations: You can choose from the same selection of scales, hoppers, and screws provided for the T35 and S60 screw feeders.

Feed rates depend on the feeder type and configuration. Read more about the T35 and S60 feeder types on the respective feeder pages:
