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 the feeding equipment is easily disassembled. A horizontal agitator 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.
