K-Tron volumetric feeders from Brolton Group

Supplier News

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
