Coperion K-Tron K3 hygienic design loss-in-weight vibratory tray feeders combine high accuracy with a configuration for materials that may not be suitable in twin screw feeders. Products, such as nuts, candy pieces, dried vegetables, and heat-sensitive chocolate chips, are ideal for the gentle vibratory feeding principle. The feeders’ modular design allows for custom tray designs for feeding into blenders or packaging lines.
Coperion K-Tron’s patented load cells, patent-pending pendulum drive technology, and its newest KCM-III controller ensure high accuracy feeding. In addition, the easy-clean design of the vibratory tray and the washdown silicone drive cover provide easy product changeover, with reduced cleaning times.
All the product contact parts are made of stainless steel or FDA- and EC 1935/2004-compliant materials. Rates vary from 1 to 8,500 dm3/hr (0.035 up to 300 ft3/hr).
