At this year’s Pack Expo 2017 (25 – 27 September), Las Vegas Convention Center, Coperion and Coperion K-Tron will present a variety of advanced components and solutions for handling bulk solids materials in different process steps, as well as the latest innovative technology for optimising feeder design and control.
Exhibits on display include a Quick Change Feeder, Smart Weigh Belt Feeder, ZRD Hygienic Rotary Valve, WZK Two-Way Diverter Valve, P30 Central Receiver, Modular Cartridge Bin Vent and Electronic Pressure Compensation (EPC) for feeders.
The Coperion K-Tron T35/S60 Quick Change Feeder is specially designed for applications requiring fast cleaning and the maximum possible material handling and change-over flexibility. The unit is available in volumetric or loss-in-weight configurations, with the single screw feeding elements handling free flowing powders, granules, pellets and other non-flooding materials, while the twin screw elements control floodable powders and more difficult sticky or hard-to-flow materials.
The Coperion K-Tron Smart Weigh Belt Feeder (SWB) is used for continuous controlled gravimetric feeding of free-flowing or friable bulk materials. The feeder can be used for gravimetric batch feeding or for continuous metering of bulk material flow. The SWB features a primary weigh bridge and offers an optional secondary weigh bridge that provides continuous online auto tare, reducing maintenance, frequency of calibration, and improving long term stability.
The Coperion WZK dual channel diverter valve is specially designed for powders and granular products. The unit has an asymmetric design with approximately 35° angle suitable for distributing and collecting in pneumatic conveying lines and in gravity applications. The WZK is Coperion’s original world-wide top selling diverter valve.
The Coperion K-Tron Modular Cartridge Bin Vent provides air filtration of fine airborne particles from within a storage tank and releases clean air to the atmosphere. While material is pneumatically conveyed into a storage tank, fine particles and air are efficiently separated by the unit’s large cartridge filter. This enables clean air to pass from the tank out to the atmosphere. Reverse jet cleaning from a compressed air accumulator pulses the cartridge filter, dislodging any fines and returning them to the storage tank.
