K-Tron Unveils MT16 Micro-Ingredient Feeder

April 23, 2013

K-Tron offers a new MT16 Micro-ingredient feeder that includes several design upgrades to increase accuracy and performance, including a feature that allows interchangeable feeding modules. The micro-ingredient feeder line has been expanded to include interchangeable MT12 mm and MT16 mm twin-screw feeding modules, or MS12 mm and MS16 mm single-screw feeder modules. The interchangeable twin to single screw feed modules provides versatility to handle a broad range of materials from powders to granular materials. The overall feed rate capacity is from 0.02 to 27 cu dm/hr. The new design allows for extended screw profiles, with a smaller overall footprint, allowing for closer discharge dimensions, ideal for multi-ingredient cluster arrangements. The unit is easy to take apart, clean and maintain, with a totally enclosed weight sensor and drive motor with improved higher torque for handling difficult materials. The new MT16 micro-ingredient feeder is ideal for applications feeding high-value/high-cost additives in any food, pharmaceutical, plastics, and chemical process that require second to second performance with a high degree of accuracy.
