K-TRON SODER Product Specification Twin-Screw Pharma Feeder

K-PH-MV-KT35

Application
Volumetric feeding of free flowing to very hard flowing powders (e.g. lumpy, moist or bridge building materials), especially in pharma applications. The feeder can be upgraded to a loss-in-weight feeder system at any time.

Design
Twin-screw feeder with interchangeable feeding tools. All parts in contact with the material being fed are stainless steel. Feeding equipment is easy to dismantle. The horizontal agitator gently moves bulk material to the large throat and then into the discharge screws. Controller: (see separate data sheet) The K-PH-MV-KT35 uses the microprocessor based DigiDrive DC closed loop motor speed controller. The pulse width modulation features of the DigiDrive controller allow the motor to run efficiently at all speeds, increasing motor life and providing control accuracy to within ±1 RPM. The simple user friendly interface allows entry and display of feeder output in selectable engineering units. Alarms are programmable. Setpoints can be stored. As an alternative the drive can be a AC-motor. Control via frequency converter. This equipment conforms to CE standards regarding EMC and safety.

Feeder Screws and Feed Rates
Actual feeder screws will be determined by the material being fed. Speed range (rpm) and the type of gear are determined by the feed rate. Feeder screws are easily interchangeable.
