All feeder parts in contact with the material being fed are stainless steel, and feeding equipment is easy to disassemble. A horizontal agitator gently moves the bulk material to the large throat and then into the screws. The feeder can be used for both LIW feeding to continuous processes and LIW batching direct to batch blenders. Twin screw feeders are ideal for floodable powders and more difficult, sticky or poorly flowing materials, as well as fibers or flakes. Specialty designs are available for clustering of feeders above extruders, blenders and other processes for optimal accessibility and ease of cleaning.
Reliable feeding of most bulk materials
Twin screw feeders can be used for free flowing powders and fine granulates but they are ideal for feeding difficult materials such as pigments, sticky, bridging or flooding powders, fiber and fiberglass.
Screw feeders are the most common and economical volumetric feeders you can buy. Coperion K-Tron makes both single screw and twin screw volumetric feeders in a wide range of sizes to meet your feed rate requirements and solve your material handling problems. Some are optimized for quick material changes and can even be configured for differing material properties. Others feature easy cleanability and meet food and pharmaceutical sanitary requirements.
