Brolton Group presents a range of volumetric feeders from K-Tron.
One of the simplest and most economical feeding solutions available, volumetric feeding involves bulk material being held in a hopper and constantly fed into a process per unit of time. A gravimetric feed rate may be inferred through a calibration process where a timed sample is taken and weighed, and screw speed adjusted accordingly.
K-Tron offers a range of three volumetric feeders including the highly accurate bulk solids pump (BSP), single screw feeders and twin screw feeders.
K-Tron weigh feeders are available in a wide range of sizes and configurations to meet specific application requirements.
K-Tron volumetric screw feeders incorporate exchangeable screw designs to allow handling of a wide range of applications involving prefeeding, feeding or batching of materials that have a consistent density, particle size and moisture content.
The K-Tron volumetric feeders range:
- Single screw feeders handle free-flowing materials such as pellets and powders
- Twin screw feeders handle difficult materials such as pigments, sticky, bridging or flooding powders, fibres and fiberglass
- Bulk solids pump volumetric feeders provide gentle, precise feeding of free-flowing pellets, granules, flakes, powders and friable products
