Coperion K-Tron

Gentle feeding and metering of bulk solids at high rates

For reliable feeding, metering or monitoring of solid bulk material flows the Coperion K-Tron Smart Flow Meter (K-SFM) is an ideal alternative to traditional feeder configurations.
The K-SFM has no moving parts, thereby ensuring gentle handling of the bulk material - a distinct advantage over other flow meter technologies. The simple, yet robust, design allows the K-SFM to provide an accurate measurement in most conditions. The bulk material flows through two measuring channels, which use highly accurate, patented Smart Force Transducer technology to determine the actual flow rate.

Benefits & Features

  • Highly accurate
  • Practically maintenance free
  • Automatic taring before and during the measuring process
  • Free passage for the bulk material
  • No moving parts
  • Gentle handling of the bulk material
  • Reliable
  • Simple design, quick disassembly
  • Function not affected by bulk material characteristics
  • State-of-the-art weighing technology

Areas of Application

The K-SFM can be used for any free flowing bulk material with particle sizes from 0.2 mm up to 10 mm, such as powders, grains, pellets, chips, fibers and many more.
The K-SFM has been successfully implemented in a wide range of applications in diverse industries such as plastics, chemicals, food, animal feed, cement, coal, glass, aluminum, grain, etc.
Application examples: material flow control within a production line, measuring filling or discharge quantities, materials management and quantitative bulk goods measurement.
