Coperion K-Tron provides a variety of control options to meet a client's process needs. From standard equipment controls to interface options for both the pneumatic conveying systems as well as feeder controls, Coperion K-Tron is dedicated to ensure the client's specific process control requirements are met.
With over 100 years of experience in feeding technology, Coperion K-Tron development and engineering teams are experts at creating smart feeding solutions.
Coperion K-Tron's machine controllers and operator interfaces deliver full functional flexibility and the connectivity you need. Coperion K-Tron’s SmartConnex control environment provides comprehensive control capability with maximum flexibility and connectivity for systems up to 24 weigh belt feeders, loss-in-weight feeders, volumetric feeders, batchers, flow meters, Bulk Solids Pump (BSP) feeders or PID controlled devices as well as pneumatic refill systems.
Coperion K-Tron’s 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; the feed pump for metering the material is located outside the scale area.
When handling powder and pellets, a plant constructor can only design a reliably functioning and economical bulk material handing system with in-depth knowledge and comprehensive understanding of the complex behavior of bulk materials.
Coperion Pelletizing Strand Pelletizers are in use for the processing of the melted polymer to cylindrical, dry and easy to handle plastics pellets.
Coperion K-Tron’s family of twin and single screw microfeeders has been specially designed to provide maximum accuracy at minimal feed rates, which makes these feeders ideal for use in the chemical and pharmaceutical processing industries. Unique design features ensure that high value ingredients are fed accurately at rates as low as 32 g/h with minimal residual material left in the feeder. The modular design means more flexibility for the process and easy access to all parts for cleaning and maintenance. The 12 mm and 16 mm twin and single screw feeding modules are completely interchangeable and can feed a wide range of free-flowing to difficult powders.
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.
