FEATURED PRODUCTS

Liquid Loss-In-Weight Feeder For Accurate Dispensing Liquid Loss-In-Weight Feeder For Accurate Dispensing

The Coperion K-Tron PH line of liquid loss-in-weight feeders provide accurate continuous volumetric or gravimetric flow control of liquids. The highly accurate gravimetric units combine the pump and tank with a suspension scale or platform scale, with the feed pump for metering the material located outside the scale area. 

Vibratory Loss-In-Weight Feeder For Difficult Pharmaceutical Powders Vibratory Loss-In-Weight Feeder For Difficult Pharmaceutical Powders

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 materials which may not be suitable in twin screw feeders, such as dfficult flowing API‘s. The gentle vibratory feeding principle allows for  low rate feeding without build up which can occur on screws and screw tubes. 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.

Tablet Press Feeder For Die Wall Lubrication Tablet Press Feeder For Die Wall Lubrication

The Coperion K-Tron PH line of pharmaceutical design loss-in-weight tablet press feeders are engineered for accurate dispensing of powder lubricants directly to the tablet press punch and die wall surfaces. The Coperion K-Tron tablet press feeder offers an automated, nearly constant feed rate, providing uniform coating of the tablet tools and avoiding sticking problems. This external lubrication provides many additional   potential benefits to manufacturers of tablet dosage forms including improving tablet hardness and dissolution properties. The Coperion K-Tron patented SFT load cell technology, coupled with a venture-type dispersion method, produce consistent and measurable flow of lubricant powder.

Modular Cartridge Bin Vent (MCBV) Modular Cartridge Bin Vent (MCBV)

The Coperion K-Tron Modular Cartridge Bin Vent provides excellent air filtration of fine airborne particles from within a storage tank and releases clean air to the atmosphere. While material is pneumatically conveyed into a storage tank, fine particles and air are efficiently separated by the unit’s large cartridge filter. This enables clean air to pass from the tank out to the atmosphere. Reverse jet cleaning from a compressed air accumulator pulses the cartridge filter, dislodging any fines and returning them to the storage tank.

Smart Weigh Belt Feeder (SWB) Smart Weigh Belt Feeder (SWB)

Coperion K-Tron’s Smart Weigh Belt (SWB) feeder offers optional continuous online auto tare by using two Smart Force Transducer III digital weigh modules. Automatic and continuous online taring of the belt reduces costly maintenance, line shutdowns and laborious manual calibration and improves long term accuracy. The SWB feeder can be supplied in two different belt widths: 300 mm and 600 mm. The mass and volume flow rate is strongly dependent on the bulk density, the maximum allowable height of the bulk solid on the belt and the belt speed. By utilizing different control software, the Smart Weigh Belt can be used to feed material into a batch system.

Twin Screw LIW Feeder K-CL-SFS-KT20 Twin Screw LIW Feeder K-CL-SFS-KT20

The Coperion K-Tron Twin Screw KT20 Feeder with interchangeable feeding tools is mounted on a 24 kg fully enclosed platform scale for high accuracy feeding of difficult flowing ingredients including additives, probiotics and flavors.

Pharmaceutical Dense Phase Conveying Pharmaceutical Dense Phase Conveying

Dense phase systems convey materials at slower velocity than traditional dilute phase pneumatic systems. Unlike dilute phase conveying, in which all the material is suspended in a high speed gas stream, dense phase conveying moves material in a slower but more concentrated manner, especially along the bottom of the pipeline. The dense phase system will be designed to move material in a strand, plug, or fluidized mode depending on the nature of the material and the plant configuration.
