Advanced solutions for efficient conveying and feeding

Cost-Efficient, High-Speed and Gentle Mixing

The new mechanical bulk material mixer MIX-A-LOT ensures particularly efficient, high-speed and gentle homogenization of fed material. The readily accessible and easy to clean mixer is available in three sizes for throughput rates up to 5 t/h, there is also an ATEX version. The surface of the mixing chamber can be electro polished. The combination of an outstanding mixing effect and extremely short mixing time is due to the optimized design of the mixing rotor. Its low circumferential velocities and the optimum design of the gap to the housing, permit gentle handling without particle destruction or heating of the product. The large inspection door on the front of the MIX-A-LOT provides easy access to the entire process chamber. An additional opening at the discharge flap also facilitates inspection and cleaning of this section.

T35 Feeder Dispensing for Masterbatch Extrusion

The T35 twin screw feeder offers volumetric feeding of free flowing to very poor flowing powders (e.g., lumpy, moist or bridge building materials) as well as fibers, flakes and other bulk materials. The T35 is a twin screw feeder with interchangeable feeding tools. All parts in contact with the material being fed are stainless steel, and feeding equipment is easy to disassemble. A horizontal agitator gently moves the bulk material to the large throat and then into the screws. This equipment conforms to CE standards regarding EMC and safety. The K2-MV-T35 feeder comes with a Coperion K-Tron SmartConnex control system, which allows individual or multi-component control. Rate range (depending on material) is 1.25 to 2,500 dm3/h.

Coperion mix a lot

The new bulk material mixer MIX-A-LOT from Coperion ensures cost-efficient, high-speed and also gentle mixing of the individual components for extrusion.

Smart Flow Meter for Reliable Metering, Registering or Monitoring of Bulk Material Flows

In high rate applications, the Smart Flow Meter (SFM) provides high accuracy feeding, at feed rates of up to 200,000 dm³/h, combined with gentle handling. In addition to a lower purchase cost than a large loss-in-weight feeder, the SFM offers lower maintenance costs and reduced headroom.

The SFM is often employed in PE resin pelletizing processes, where it accurately and gently feeds the main component, PE powder, into the pelletizing extruder. Typical particle size is approximately 0.02 mm up to 10 mm. The SFM is suitable for free-flowing bulk materials such as powders, granules, chips or fibers.

Electronic Pressure Compensation (EPC) System for High-Accuracy Coperion K-Tron Loss-In-Weight Feeders

Coperion K-Tron will present a unique Electronic Pressure Compensation (EPC) system for their high-accuracy loss-in-weight feeders. The main advantages of the new system include improved accuracy and reliability as well as lower initial cost and easier installation compared to traditional mechanical pressure compensation systems. Coperion K-Tron has developed a clever but simple electronic solution for accurate and steady pressure compensation in feeder hoppers and outlets. The modular design incorporates pressure sensors and electronics tailored to interact smoothly with Coperion K-Tron’s KCM feeder control system. Retrofitting options for existing feeders are available. EPC can be installed on a majority of Coperion K-Tron gravimetric feeders in almost any application and all industries.
