Receivers ease powder handling

February 1, 2011


Redesigned K-Tron Premier P-Series central receivers handle powders, poor-flowing powders and fragile materials, providing a custom solution for difficult conveying applications. The modularity of the receivers has been enhanced to increase the receiving volume of bulk materials. The design meets cGMP sanitary requirements, with all components constructed of stainless steel. The receivers also feature a sanitary design, reverse jet polyester cartridge filters, tri-clover quick-release fittings and band clamps for quick disassembly. The P-Series is available in three models including: the P10 (10 liter capacity) conveys up to 600 kg/h (1320 lb./hr.); the P30 (30 liter capacity) conveys up to 1800 kg/h (3960 lb./hr.); and the P100 (100 liter capacity) conveys up to 4000 kg/h (8800 lb./hr.).
