Coperion K-Tron’s Bag Dump Station with integrated dust hood is specifically designed to maintain a clean, dust-controlled process environment. This bag dump station is complemented by a Coperion ZXD 200 rotary valve with FXS (Full Access System) for optimal chamber emptying, featuring a specially designed blow-through channel, ideal for poorly flowing products, and an especially large inlet for high throughputs. The entire unit is designed to meet strict hygiene requirements and is optionally available with CIP cleaning systems or a fluidizing cone. The fluidizing cone is made from FDA-approved plastic and improves the material flow. Versions suitable for ATEX zones 3D or 2D are also available.
