Coperion K-Tron’s Innovative Feeder for Continuous Mixers

3 Aug 2023  |
The Coperion K-Tron K3-PH line of feeders has been specifically designed for clustering in continuous mixing applications, including continuous direct compression and continuous wet and dry granulations.

The feeder design features a modular concept complete with a drastically reduced overall footprint thanks to a new, smaller D4 platform scale incorporating the highly accurate Smart Force Transducer (SFT) weighing technology.

The modular quick-change design allows the easy exchange of feeder types and sizes as well as hoppers or agitators using the same scale & drive for fast adaptation to new processes and formulations while also ensuring easy cleaning and maintenance.

The two available Coperion K-Tron feeder types QT20 and QT35 can be used with the same scale and drive combination. The feeder can easily be equipped with ActiFlow, Coperion K-Tron’s smart flow device, for aid in feeding poorly flowing excipients and API’s. In addition, the new KCM-III controller is provided for increased data collection and processing power.
