Quick Change Feeder QC
One feeder for handling a large variety of products and a simple means of preventing contamination
Coperion K-Tron’s T35/S60 Quick Change Feeder is specially designed for applications requiring the maximum possible material handling and changeover flexibility along with the convenience of easy cleaning capability. It enables a fast exchange of the feeding module which minimizes downtime and eliminates the risk of cross-contamination. The QC-Feeder is available in economical volumetric or high-performance loss-in-weight configurations.
The Quick Change Feeder is the ideal solution:
• Where frequent and easy cleaning is required
• Where product contamination must be prevented
• Where only one feeder must handle a large variety of products
• Where ingredients must be changed quickly and cleanly
The Coperion K-Tron Quick Change Feeder allows switching between a feed bowl with single screw and a feed bowl with twin screws within minutes, enabling one feeding station to handle a huge variety of materials. Furthermore, while the removed feed bowl and screw(s) are being cleaned, the replacement bowl and screw(s) can continue feeding. Whereas single screw feeding elements are ideal for handling free flowing powders, granules, pellets and other nonflooding materials, they often don't work very well with many of the more difficult-to-handle materials. Twin screw elements employing two self-wiping, closed-flight screws, intermeshed side by side, efficiently transport floodable powders as well as sticky or otherwise hard-to-flow materials to the discharge.
Maximum flexibility for the QC-Feeder is derived from the combination of the available T35 and S60 screw feeder configurations: You can choose from the same selection of scales, hoppers, and screws provided for the T35 and S60 screw feeders.
The KS60 single screw feeder is available as a volumetric unit or as a gravimetric unit with a choice of platform scale or three-point suspension scale.
The S100 single screw feeder is available as a volumetric unit or as a gravimetric unit with a three-point suspension scale.
The S500 single screw feeder is available as a volumetric unit or as a gravimetric unit with a three-point suspension scale.
The S510 is a version without the horizontal agitator.
