K-Tron P Series VenturiK-Tron specifically designed its P Series Venturi loader for conveying powders in sanitary food, pharmaceutical and chemical applications. According to the company, this loader is further highlighted by:

  • Convey rates up to 300 kg/hour (660 pounds/hour) and a minimum holding capacity of 9.5 dm3 (0.34 feet3), which increases with the optional extension modules.
