The Coperion K-Tron batch weigh vacuum receiver combines the operations of conveying and weighing, and is suited to handling major ingredients. Whether the application requires a single ingredient to be delivered to multiple destinations, or multiple ingredients to be delivered to a single destination, the batch weigh receiver sequentially accommodates multiple ingredients. All systems feature one or more receiver hoppers suspended on three load cells, with an accuracy of ±0.5% of full scale capacity. Controls can include recipe and inventory capabilities. The vacuum-based operation of the batch weigh receiver assures a dust-free processing environment. Typical major ingredients include corn grits, corn meal, farina, potato granules, potato powder, rice cones, etc.
