Flow Aids Overview
Flow Aids Operation
Coperion K-Tron offers a complete range of flow aids to assist in the movement of various bulk materials. Which of these you use depends on your application.
- Bin Unloader - The standard outlet of the Coperion K-Tron bin unloader matches the Coperion K-Tron Aerolock rotary valve flange pattern. The Bin Unloader is available in 6”, 8”, 10” and 12” round and square outlet sizes
- Fluidizer Beds - Fluidizer Beds are designed for applications on tank hoppers having 5-foot diameter discharge openings. Fluidization of dry, finely ground, aeratable bulk materials such as flour, starch, cement and hydrated lime is promoted by introducing low pressure air into the stored material.
- ProBlend™ Zone Blender - The ProBlend™ Zone Blender is used for blending and homogenizing any free flowing bulk material, within a hopper or silo. It can be used for mixtures of many ingredients and is frequently employed by compounders, recyclers, and others who require a uniform blend of materials at the use point.
- Aeration Pads - Coperion K-Tron Aeration Pads provide an effective flow aid for use when discharging all types of granular or powdered materials. The special design of the device causes a vibration as fluidizing air flows between the rim of the diffuser and the bin wall.
