Vibratory Loss In Weight Feeder For Coating Applications


The Coperion K-Tron PH line of pharmaceutical design loss-in-weight vibratory tray feeders combine high accuracy with a configuration which is ideal for metering of uncoated tablets direct to the tablet coating drum.

The gentle vibratory feeding principle allows for  high accuracy feeding without damage to the uncoated tablets. Coperion K-Tron’s patented load cells and KCM controller ensure high accuracy feeding while the easy clean design of the vibratory tray ensure quick and easy product changeover. Specialty control algorithms permit the vibration method of feeding, without interrupting the loss in weight signal, in order to control rate of feed to the drum and optimize coating performance.

Rates vary from as low as 2-900 dm3/h [0.07 up to 32 ft3/h]. The PH line of vibratory loss-in-weight feeders is ideal for continuous pharmaceutical operations including continuous extrusion, granulation, direct compression/blending and coating.
