K-Tron Smart Force Transducer Weighing Technology For Gravimetric Feeding, Batching, And Metering Brochure

Accurate feeding, batching and metering of bulk solids begins with precision weighing. K-Tron pioneered vibrating wire technology for the process industries, and today continues its leadership with the Smart Force Transducer II and III. The SFT II/III represent the leading edge of process weighing technology and form a solid foundation for the continuing evolution of the art and science of weighing.
