Feed Bin

The Coperion K-Tron feed bin or bag dump stations are used to precondition the material for vacuum conveying before it enters the air stream. Feed bins are mostly positioned underneath Big Bag unloading stations or other process machinery, in order to buffer material for Big Bag change-over or for other purposes. The 150 liter feed bin body equipped with the dust hood and bag rest module is ideal for emptying bags in a dust free manner.
