Now capitalizing on its industry-wide recognition as a global leader and single-source supplier of process automation equipment and engineered systems, Coperion K-Tron is extending its reach throughout the process line with enhanced 'materials-centered' systems capabilities, including gravimetric feeding equipment, dense and dilute phase pneumatic conveying equipment, and complete turnkey systems solutions for the plastics industry. Coperion K-Tron holds more than 100 patents for feeding, weighing, mechanical and control technologies, offering bulk solids handling experience for batch and continuous processes for a variety of manufacturing industries worldwide.
 


Single-source for Complete Turnkey Systems

 

As a total solutions provider, Coperion K-Tron offers material handling and feeding systems including design, replacement and the retrofitting of process lines to meet the material handling needs for that process. For more than a century, Coperion K-Tron has been the leader in the design, installation and maintenance of process feeders and pneumatic conveying systems for the handling of bulk solids. Today Coperion K-Tron continues to lead as provider of total solutions for material handling and feeding systems.

Coperion K-Tron’s systems engineering services provide a single source for complete turnkey systems with comprehensive engineering consultation at the project planning and quoting stages and continuity of interface with the same engineer throughout all stages of the project. Coperion K-Tron designs and manufactures its own weighing, mechanical and control systems specifically for the unique demands of the process industries. Products include volumetric and gravimetric feeders (single and twin screw, vibratory, BSP, cone, liquid), weigh belt feeders and dry bulk mass flow meters. Material flow rates can range from microfeeding at 20 g/hr to 300 TPH.

Coperion K-Tron designs complete material transfer and storage systems using dilute phase and dense phase pneumatic conveying and Aerolock™ rotary valves from the receiving dock, to intermediate storage, and on to the process area for feeder refill and subsequent transport.

  • The Anatomy of Feeder Performance

    4.9.1.2 – Photo/Graphic TBDAs a major contributor to formulation quality and consistency, feeder performance rightly deserves close attention and concern.

  • The Total Cost of Ownership Approach

    4.10.1.2 – PhotoFaced with several alternatives, making any rational purchase decision simply means making the best possible selection at the time it has to be made.Often what makes capital equipment purchase decisions so challenging is not just the complexity of the particular issues involved or the underlying mechanics of decisionmaking, but all the residual uncertainties of fact and assumption that linger even after months of careful investigation, evaluation and consideration.“Did we include all the factors that should go into this decision?”… “Did we account for them fairly?”… “Did we accurately estimate projected costs and savings?”… “Should we do more before we decide?”… these and other questions reflect the nagging doubts that confront any equipment buyer.While uncertainties will always exist, working within a logical and comprehensive decision framework will help assure the firmest possible footing in navigating the purchase process.

  • Identifying Costs & Benefits

    4.10.1.2 – Photo 4.10.1.3 – Quality & Efficiency ContributorsBecause of the uncertainties and practical difficulties involved in performing a rigorous pre-purchase estimates of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), a less formal yet more practical approach may still provide the guidance needed to fairly support the purchase decision.

  • Quality Contributors

    4.10.3.2 – Photo 4.10.3.3 – Quality ContributorsFactors contributing to the cost/benefit stream in direct proportion to process throughput include formulation accuracy and end product uniformity.

  • Efficiency Contributors

    4.10.4.2 – Photo 4.10.4.3 – Efficiency ContributorsWhile the impact of quality-related cost factors are proportional to process throughput, efficiency contributors impose their costs or deliver their benefits over time by influencing process efficiency in various ways.
