Applications include simple up and in systems, which include bag, dump stations with powders conveyed to mixers or more complex railcar/truck unloading and batch weighing systems. Systems are custom designed for the application and can include dilute phase pressure, dilute phase vacuum, dense phase vacuum, dense phase pressure, and vacuum sequencing.
Automated pneumatic transfer and batch weighing systems for food ingredients are also available which minimize human interaction and optimize social distancing. Coperion K-Tron’s food material handling systems include the ability to handle wide range of materials from micron size to granular or irregular shapes; at any bulk density; free-flowing to sluggish; mildly to extremely abrasive; friable or temperature sensitive. Systems can be designed for sanitary environments.
