K-Tron’s material handling and continuous feeding system features ActiFlow, a material flow aid that prevents bridging and rat-holing of cohesive materials in loss-in-weight feeder hoppers. The K2-ML-D5-T35 Quick Change feeder runs in combination with a Model 2410 stainless steel receiver for sanitary pneumatic conveying applications. This fully automated system handles enhanced material-centered applications. The Model T35/S60 quick-change feeder works with applications requiring rapid changeover of materials and fast cleaning. The feeder allows the removal of the entire feed hopper with screws in place and replacement with a second unit. The single-screw feeding elements handle free-flowing powders, granules and other non-flooding materials while the twin screw elements control floodable powders and more difficult, sticky or hard-to-flow materials. The Model 2410 vacuum-sequencing, central powder receiver conveys fine bulk materials, and is available in 2 versions for either general keep-full conveying or loss-in-weight feeder refill applications.
