Reliable metering of bulk material flows with the Smart Flow Meter
Also exhibited will be the Coperion K-Tron Smart Flow Meter that is used in industries that need reliable metering, registering or monitoring of bulk material flows. In high rate applications, the Smart Flow Meter provides high accuracy feeding, at very high feed rates of up to 200,000 dm³/hr(7,000 ft³/hr). The Smart Flow Meter offers lower maintenance costs and reduced headroom. There are two models available: K-SFM-275 and K-SFM-350, dependent on application requirements. The Smart Flow Meter is used in polyolefin production processes, where the main component is accurately and gently fed into the extruder.
Quick Change Feeder – for free flowing or floodable materials
Another highlight will be Coperion K-Tron’s Quick Change Feeder that is specially designed for applications requiring the maximum possible materials handling and changeover flexibility. The single screw feeding elements handle free flowing powders, granules, pellets and other free flowing materials.
