Coperion K-Tron (U.S. office in Sewell, N.J.) has redesigned the model D5 scale used with its loss-in-weight feeders to make it more hygienic, accurate, reliable, and easier to clean. The stainless-steel scale has versatile mounting options that can adapt to a variety of installation sites. Both standard and pharmaceutical versions can be supplied with an X-frame support or with four small feet, raising the scale above the subjacent surface and providing enough space for cleaning underneath. The cable entry gland is located within a foot. Alternatively, a project-specific baseplate, frame, or platform can be provided as an option.

The new design is fully compatible with the previous model, making replacement in the field easy and spare parts interchangeable. The basic version of the D5 scale is rated for explosion protection.
