Coperion K-Tron and Coperion hope to see you at the International Powder & Bulk Solids 2016!

May 3-5, 2016
Donald E. Stephens Convention Center
Rosemont, Illinois
Booth #1413


Stop by booth 1413 and learn more about feeders, related weighing and controls, pneumatic conveying, components and extrusion systems.

The automation of any process starts with the use of reliable, precise and properly selected feeding and pneumatic conveying components and controls. Whether your process requires transporting of bulk materials from rail car, bulk material storage, gravimetric / volumetric ingredient feeding, extrusion or integration with plant-wide control systems, let us design, install, and commission your system.

Sanitary Filter Receiver (SFR) 

The SFR provides automatic separation of product material from the convey air for vacuum and pressure conveying in sanitary applications, for batch and continuous processes. The SFR is specifically designed for stringent food applications requiring quick clean-out and to reduce food contaminants and/or the cross contamination of allergens. Unit is easily cleanable with round corners, no ledges and no hidden areas. The tool-less side entry access door allows for safe and easy cleaning of the unit and simple access to the filter media for fast changeover. The access door and tube sheet are integrated on a single hinge with removable tube filter assemblies. The unique material entry design on the top of the receiver reduces can velocity concerns. The unit also features an integral 70 degree hopper, mounting legs and pressure differential indicator. The SFR is designed to meet FDA, EHEDG, ATEX standards and can easily be adapted for NFPA standards.

ZRD Hygienic Rotary Valve (Heavy-Duty Premium)

The Coperion ZRD-Hygienic (Heavy-Duty Premium) rotary valve is specially designed for sanitary, pharmaceutical, food and chemical applications where contamination is a constant concern, and frequent disassembly and cleaning is required. The ZRD-Hyg includes full access extraction system and a large inlet for high filling efficiency. Without removing the valve from the system, the ZRD-Hyg can be easily disassembled, cleaned and reassembled. The full access extraction system fully supports the rotor as it is removed for cleaning, making it an ideal method for facilitating endplate and rotor removal. The entire unit is specially designed to avoid contamination with product contact surfaces constructed from DIN 1.4404 [AISI 316L] stainless steel. The ZRD-Hyg is designed according to EHEDG guidelines with pressure differentials up to 1.5 bar [21 psi] and temperatures up to 100° C [212° F].

Electronic Pressure Compensation (EPC) 

New this year, Coperion K-Tron and Coperion will exhibit the EPC which is for loss-in-weight feeders. It's available for Coperion K-Tron loss-in-weight feeders and improves accuracy and reliability. It's suitable for most applications and all industires. Stop by our booth to learn more about the NEW EPC.


Dense Phase Conveying System

Coperion K-Tron Dense Phase Pipe system that will allow booth guests to see firsthand how the dense phase system works. The Dense Phase System will be constructed to allow guests to watch each piece of material flow through this unique and one-of-a-kind system.

Aerolock™ Rotary Valves (MD, HD), WYK Diverter Valve

The Coperion K-Tron Heavy-Duty (HD) Aerolock™ rotary valve is engineered for heavy duty industrial service and high volumetric efficiency at up to 1.0 bar [15 PSI] pressure differential. The Food, Milling, and Baking Industries utilize the HD Aerolock with a flat-tipped rotor and lip seals to facilitate efficient material discharge. The HD Aerolock is used to handle sugar, flour, cereal and other food products, and will meter flour at over 100,000 lbs./hr. 

The Heavy-Duty Aerolock rotary valve has an eight-blade rotor that maintains a minimum two-blade labyrinth seal to minimize air leakage. It is available with relieved tips to prevent material buildup on the housing or non-relieved tips for other larger-particulate products.

The WYK Diverter Valve is a stainless steel diverter valve for powders and granular products. It has a single channel diverter valve in conical design. The asymmetric design with 45° angle, is suitable for distributing and collecting in pneumatic conveying lines and in gravity pipes and is ideal for sanitary and wet cleanable design, EHEDG certified (0.8 Ra execution); suitable for the wet cleaning process. It is essential for the function and for the cleaning result that the rotor is disassembled after each washing process and manually cleaned and dried.

For installation in conveying lines or in gravity pipes at up to 5 bar(g) [73 psi(g)] with an operation temperature up to 100° C [212° F].

Single to Twin Quick-Change Feeder

The T35/S60 Quick Change Feeder (QC) is designed for applications requiring quick changeover of materials and convenience of fast cleaning. The QC feeder allows for the removal of the entire feed hopper with screws in place and replaced with a second unit. The removed hopper can then be transported to a cleaning facility for further disassembly, cleaning and prepped for another material. In loss-in-weight feeding applications where difficult flowing or cohesive materials form rat-holes or bridging in the hopper, K-Tron’s new ActiFlow flow aid eliminates the need for mechanical agitation greatly simplifying the cleaning process.  

 We look forward to seeing you at the Powder Show in Rosemont!
