Bulk solids pump
April 5, 2004
The K-Tron Bulk Solids Pump feeder does not use standard screws/augers, belts or vibratory trays to convey material. It utilizes positive displacement to feed free flowing materials with accuracy, uniform discharge, consistent volume and gentle handling, according to the company. Available in both gravimetric and volumetric versions, the feeder has vertical rotating discs that create a product lock-up zone for conveyance from storage hopper to discharge outlet.
