Electronic Pressure Compensation at the Powder Show

Coperion K-Tron's new Electronic Pressure Compensation (EPC) system
Coperion K-Tron's new Electronic Pressure Compensation (EPC) system

Coperion K-Tron will display the new Electronic Pressure Compensation (EPC) system for its high-accuracy loss-in-weight feeders at the upcoming Powder Show.

The main advantages of the new system include improved accuracy and reliability, as well as lower initial cost and easier installation compared to traditional mechanical pressure compensation systems. Retrofitting options for existing feeders are available. EPC can be installed on a majority of the company’s gravimetric feeders in almost any application and all industries.

In a closed feeding system, pressure build-up inside a feeder can significantly impair weighing accuracy. The commonly installed mechanical pressure compensation systems are sensitive to structural factors and machine alignment and therefore may be intricate or even unreliable. Coperion K-Tron has now developed an electronic solution for accurate and steady pressure compensation in feeder hoppers. The modular design incorporates pressure sensors and electronics tailored to interact smoothly with its KCM feeder control system.
