Coperion K-Tron Introduces Electronic Pressure Compensation System

Coperion K-Tron introduces a new electronic pressure compensation (EPC) system for its loss-in-weight feeders. The electronic solution reportedly provides accurate and steady pressure compensation in feeder hoppers. The modular design incorporates pressure sensors and electronics tailored to interact smoothly with Coperion K-Tron’s KCM feeder control system.

Depending on set-up and requirements, sensors can be positioned on the feeder hopper and on the material discharge tube. The software implements a self-optimizing compensation algorithm for best performance and dynamics identical to those of Coperion K- Tron’s SFT load cells, which allows for accurate feeding results, even in systems with perceivable pressure fluctuations.

A separate field evaluation kit allows for the assessment of potential pressure issues in existing installations.
