The Coperion K-Tron batch weighing system features a P100 batch weigh receiver combined with a KT20 loss-in-weight twin screw feeder, mounted on a collection hopper. The batch weigh receiver combines a vacuum receiver with a reliable weighing system for the batching of major ingredients. The resulting combination allows ingredients to be conveyed and weighed, so accurate batching of ingredients can take place on either a cumulative or sequential basis. Batch weigh receivers are available in various sizes from 30 to 1,000 L.
The KT20 loss-in-weight twin screw feeder accurately adds smaller amounts of high-value minor ingredients to the batch. Twin screw feeders can handle more difficult materials, such as vitamins and probiotics, or difficult-flowing powders, such as spices, flavorings, and aromas. The complete station is constructed of stainless steel and executed in a food-grade finish.
