Volumetric Feeder Application
K-Tron offers a wide variety of single screw volumetric and twin screw volumetric feeders. With exchangeable screw design choices, you can handle a wide range of applications involving prefeeding, feeding or batching. Volumetric feeders may be used for materials with consistent density, particle size and moisture content.

Twin Screw Volumetric Feeders
Materials Fed: Twin screw volumetric feeders handle more difficult materials such as pigments, sticky, bridging or flooding powders, fiber and fiberglass.

Volumetric Feeder Control Options
Digi-Drive is the world’s first digital volumetric control. It’s easier to use, improves feeding accuracy, and extends motor life.

 

Smart Stepper Module (KSSM) for operating, regulating and controlling a single Bulk Solids Pump volumetric feeder employing a stepper motor up to 49W.

 

Batching Systems: Use K-Tron volumetric feeders with our custom engineered Gain-in-Weight Batching Station for up to eight components and 100 recipes.

 

Other Volumetric Feeder Options

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

 

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