New Pharma Feeder for Mills and Micronizers

New Pharma Feeder for Mills and Micronizers
The new Coperion K-Tron line of feeders has been specifically designed to feed a wide variety of pharmaceutical ingredients and is ideal for pharmaceutical size reduction applications.

The new feeder design features a modular concept complete with a new, smaller D4 platform scale incorporating the newly updated and highly accurate Smart Force Transducer (SFT) weighing technology. The weigh scale allows for exact validation and control of the mass flow to the mill.  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, QT35 can be used with the same scale and drive combination, thus allowing for a wider range of feeder rates without changing gearbox sizes.
