K-Tron Introduces New Micro Feeder MT12 for Rates as Low as 20 Grams/Hour at K 2004
Loss-in-weight and Volumetric Models Available
PITMAN, NJ (October 15, 2004)-The K-Tron Feeder Group is introducing a new micro feeder concept to the European plastics industry, at K 2004, October 20-27, in Dusseldorf, Germany. K-Tron Micro Feeder Model MT12 will accurately feed rates as low as 20 grams / hour and as high as 2000 grams/ hour, depending on material and installation environment. Both loss-in-weight and volumetric feeder models will be available for continuous or batch operation.
The compact feeder is designed for ease of disassembly, allowing fast and easy cleaning. The feeder design also allows the feeder bowl to discharge almost completely when emptying, leaving minimal amounts of residual material.
