K-Tron’s ProRate gravimetric blender handles pellets, regrind, and raw materials. Consisting of one to eight feeders and a central microprocessor-based controller, the ProRate is designed to continuously meter raw materials accurately into a central station hopper. Each of the feeders operates in an independent, continuous loss-in-weight scaling mode to insure accuracy of each ingredient. The desired feed rate for each material can be entered in as lb/hr (or kg/hr), as a percent of the total rate, or as a percent of the virgin material. The controller continuously monitors the weight signals of each feeder and adjusts the auger speed to match the recipe feed rate for each feeder. Augers are available in five interchangeable sizes.
