Batch Weighing Station for Batching Direct to Mixers
The Coperion K-Tron batch weighing system is ideal for accurate batching direct to blenders/mixers. The station features a P100 batch weigh receiver combined with a KT20 loss-in-weight twin screw feeder, mounted on a collection hopper.

The batch weigh receiver combines a vacuum receiver with a reliable weighing system, for the ideal batching of major ingredients. The resulting combination allows ingredients to be conveyed and weighed so that accurate batching of ingredients can take place on either a cumulative or sequential basis.  Batch weigh receivers are available in various sizes from 30 to 1000 liters.

The KT20 loss-in-weight twin screw feeder is ideal for accurately adding smaller amounts of high-value minor ingredients to the batch. Twin screw feeders can handle more difficult materials such as vitamins, and probiotics, or difficult flowing powders such as spices, flavorings, and aromas. The complete station is constructed of stainless steel and executed in food grade finish. For more detailed information on high-accuracy batch weighing visit www.coperion.com/food.
