Coperion K-Tron feeder

Patented feeder design enables gentle feeding of free-flowing pellets

  • Patented Bulk Solid Pump utilize positive displacement action
  • High accuracy & gentle material handling
  • Easy cleaning: only one moving part

Coperion K-Tron will present its patented BSP-135 Bulk Solids Pump feeder line at this year’s Fakuma. The BSP feeders do not use the usual screws/augers, belts or vibratory trays to convey the material, but utilize positive displacement action to feed free flowing materials with high accuracy, offering uniform discharge, consistent volume and gentle handling.

The BSP feeders have vertical rotating discs that create feeding ducts. Material moves smoothly from the storage hopper to discharge outlet through a “product lock-up zone,” achieving true linear mass flow. With only one moving part, these compact feeders can be easily cleaned, making them ideal for applications with frequent material changes.

The company will also showcase gravimetric batch blenders at the exhibition. The gravimetric batch blender on display is equipped with two integrated vacuum receivers. The series 2400 vacuum receivers are designed for pneumatically conveying powders, pellets, granular and recycling materials. Six models cover conveying rates from 330 to 6,800 kg/hr (720 to 15,000 lb/hr). Besides the vacuum receivers, the gravimetric batch blender is equipped with a powder feeder. Twin screw powder feeders are designed to handle difficult materials such as pigments, sticky, bridging or flooding powders, fibers and fiberglass. The twin screw volumetric feeders are available in different sizes and cover feed rates from 0.01 dm³/hr to 1,600 dm³/hr (0.0004 ft3/hr to 45,300 ft3/hr).
