K-Tron Process Group introduced the next generation of its SmartConnex feeder controls, the KCM, or K-Tron Control Module.
The KCM integrates the control and motor drive modules directly on the feeder, in a single, compact, new housing.
It can function as either a volumetric or gravimetric feeder control, supporting all K-Tron feeders equipped with the SFT II or SFT III load cells. It readily connects directly to any factory programmable logic controller.
In other news from K-Tron, based in Pitman, N.J., the company has expanded its Bulk Solids Pump feeder line by adding two models, both available in volumetric and gravimetric versions.
The BSP-135 feeders can be configured using a platform scale, three-point or one-point suspension weighing. The BSP-150-P can be configured as a loss-in-weight feeder using three-point suspension weighing.
BSP feeders do not use the usual screws or augers, belts or vibratory trays to convey material. Instead, they use positive displacement action to feed the materials.
