K-Tron will introduce a new MT16 micro-ingredient feeder at Interphex 2013 taking place April 23-25 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York. The new micro-ingredient feeder includes several design upgrades to increase accuracy and performance, including a design feature that allows interchangeable feeding modules.

ktronK-Tron’s 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 provide versatility to handle a broad range of materials from powders to granular materials.

The overall feed-rate capacity is from 0.02 dm³ / hour to 27 dm³ / hour.  The new design allows for extended screw profiles, with a smaller overall footprint, allowing for closer discharge dimensions. The new design is suitable for multi-ingredient cluster arrangements.

The MT16 micro-ingredient feeder handles 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. Typical applications include feeding jet mills, continuous extrusion processes and any application where expensive micro ingredients require accurate feeding.
