Coperion K-Tron has designed the K3-PH-line of loss-in weight feeders to meet the growing demands of continuous processing in the pharmaceutical industry. The feeder design features a modular concept and a reduced overall footprint thanks to a smaller D4 platform scale incorporating the patented Smart Force Transducer weighing technology. This scale provides an accurate weight signal with a resolution of 1:4,000,000 in 80 ms. The modular quick change design allows the easy exchange of feeder types and sizes as well as of hoppers or agitators using the same scale and drive. Thus the system may easily be adjusted to new processes and formulations and also ensures easy cleaning and maintenance. Depending on the application, the feeder can be equipped with a material flow aid and with electronic pressure compensation. The devices are available in volumetric and gravimetric, single and twin screw models.
