Coperion K-Tron feeders – Overview
Coperion K-Tron feeders provide high-accuracy feeding solutions to handle a wide range of ingredients – from chocolate chips to fiberglass and from floodable powders to waxy liquids.

The Coperion K-Tron product line includes volumetric feeders, loss-in-weight feeders, weigh belt feeders and mass flowmeters for bulk solids and related controls for continuous or batch processes. These feeders are used in the plastics, chemical, detergent, food, pharmaceutical and other industries.

Feeding by Volume
Every Feeder Starts as a Volumetric Feeder
In principle, volumetric feeding is the simplest, most economical feeding solution available. Bulk material is held in a hopper and constantly fed into a process per unit of time. A gravimetric feed rate may be inferred through a calibration process where a timed sample is taken and weighed, and screw speed adjusted accordingly. Although there is no weight feedback to assure feeding accuracy over time, this may not be a concern for materials with consistent bulk density.

Choosing the Best Volumetric Feeder for Your Process
Coperion K-Tron offers a wide variety of single and twin screw volumetric feeders. With exchangeable screw design choices, you can handle a wide range of applications involving prefeeding, feeding or batching of materials with consistent density, particle size and moisture content. Volumetric models of Bulk Solid Pump ( BSP ) Feeders are an economic choice offering excellent accuracy.

Single Screw Feeders
handle free-flowing materials such as pellets and powders.

Twin Screw Feeders handle more difficult materials such as pigments, sticky, bridging or flooding powders, fibers and fiberglass.

Feeding by Weight
Gravimetric Feeders Offer a Window into Your Process
In gravimetric feeding, dry bulk material or liquid is fed into a process at a constant weight per unit of time since weight is a variable that can be captured by a weighing module. Consistent control and complete monitoring are possible. In principle, gravimetric feeding combines monitoring of the feeding process with a feedback loop that enables accurate material control. K-Tron offers both loss-in-weight feeders and weigh belt feeders

The BSP feeders do not use the usual screws/augers, belts or vibratory trays to convey the material. They utilize positive displacement action to feed free flowing materials with astounding accuracy, offering uniform discharge, consistent volume and gentle handling.

The BSP feeders have vertical rotating discs that create a product lock-up zone, conveying the material smoothly from storage hopper to discharge outlet, achieving true linear mass flow.
