Accurate Food Processing Batch Weighing Options
Coperion K-Tron offers a variety of batch weighing and ingredient material handling options for dispensing food ingredients into bins or containers, mixers, or packaging lines.

Whether requiring the automated transfer and weighing of several macro ingredients via a scale hopper, minors, and micros via loss-in-weight (LIW) or gain-in-weight (GIW) batch feeders, or a dispensing system that incorporates all three technologies, Coperion K-Tron can recommend the most accurate and economical option for the application.

Dispensing systems are becoming an increasingly popular method in the food industry for accurate ingredient delivery with minimal loss, thus also improving overall ingredient costs. Automated batch weighing systems can be set up to deliver a varied number of ingredients without manual intervention, thus maximizing social distancing and optimizing food and operator safety. Controls integration featuring detailed recipe control and bar code scanning is available. The experienced system engineers at Coperion K-Tron can provide optimal designs for quick changeover, shortened times on system cleaning, and maximum product safety.
