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.
