Coperion K-Tron Scale Hoppers
Coperion K-Tron

The Coperion K-Tron Scale Hopper has working capacities ranging from 200 liters to 2900 liters (7 to 104 cu.ft.)

The inlet is equipped with a tangential entry baffle which mates to an Aeropass valve, providing better material-air separation and more even filling of the hopper. The hopper features three support lugs, evenly spaced around the circumference which can be used to suspend the hopper from the load cells. The hoppers are fabricated in carbon steel with primed interiors and enamel finish-painted exteriors.

Material can be delivered to the scale hoppers by a closed-loop Aeropass system, filter receivers, cyclones or screw feeders. When a receiver is used an Aerolock meters material into the scale hopper until the set point is reached.
