Loss-in-Weight Feeder Application

Use K-Tron's modular loss-in-weight feeders for materials with varying bulk density and for material handling automation. Loss-in-weight gravimetric feeders are the best choice for long term accuracy, repeatability and quality documentation, and where dust control is a concern.

Twin Screw Loss-in-Weight Feeder Models

Materials Fed: Twin screw loss-in-weight feeders are most effective for pigments, sticky, bridging or flooding powders, fiberglass.

Loss-in-Weight Feeder Control Options

All K-Tron loss-in-weight feeders come with the SmartConnex Feeder Control Environment. Operator interface options include:
KSU single loss-in-weight feeder control.
KSL single line control (up to 8 gravimetric feeders).
KSC multi-line control (up to 30 gravimetric feeders and up to 8 lines).

Other Loss-in-Weight Feeder Options

Hazardous Areas:
K-Tron provides loss-in-weight feeders that can meet area classifications according to American or European standards.


Shear Hopper for Modular loss-in-weight feeders. The shear hopper reliably prevents bridge-building of cohesive bulk materials. This special hopper can be used with all K2 Modular Loss-in-Weight Feeders in place of the standard 4D hoppers.


Loss-in-Weight Feeder Accuracy

Weigh feeder accuracy is a measure of how closely a feeder discharges material at the desired flow rate. A complete expression of loss-in-weight feeder accuracy includes measurements of repeatability and linearity. Repeatability measures the extent of discharge variability at a given flow rate. Linearity gauges the deviation of average flow rate over the feeder’s full operating range.
