Coperion K-Tron's modular Loss-in-Weight feeders are ideal for the high accuracy addition of ingredients to batch or continuous mixers and extruders. Loss-in-Weight gravimetric feeders are the best choice for long term accuracy, repeatability, and quality
The twin screw feeder with interchangeable feeding tools is mounted on a D5 weigh bridge. The weigh bridge is stainless steel, and the scale housing is completely enclosed. The horizontal agitator gently moves the bulk material to the large throat and then into the screws. Feeder screws are easily interchangeable. This equipment conforms to CE standards regarding EMC and safety.
Quick Change loss-in-weight feeders are specially designed for pet food applications with free flowing to very poorly flowing powders (e.g., lumpy, moist or bridge building materials) as well as fibers, flakes and other bulk materials. The twin and single screw feed modules can be interchanged to provide for quick cleaning, minimized product changeover, and increased production flexibility.
