Capsule Manufacturing Process

In pharmaceutical industry, there are various pharma company manufactures types of machineries for the different process and application as per there specialty. There are vast categories of pharma machineries as each process requires different machineries. Such as Pharma machines for Tablet filling, Machines for Tablet Counting, Machines for Tablet Pressing, and Machines for Tablet Labeling etc.

In the capsule manufacturing process first gelatin and hot demineralized water are mixed under vacuum in Gelatin Melting System. After aging in stainless steel receiving tanks, the gelatin solution is transferred to stainless steel feed tanks. Dyes, opacifants, and any needed water are added to the gelatin in the feed tanks to complete the gelatin preparation procedure. The feed tanks are then used to gravity-feed gelatin into the machine for making capsules.

From the feed tank, the gelatin is gravity fed to dipper section. Here, the capsules are moulded onto stainless steel Pin Bars which are dipped into the gelatin solution. Once dipped, the Pin Bars rise to the upper deck allowing the cap and body to set on the Pins. The Pin Bars pass through the upper and lower kilns of Capsule Machine Drying System. Here gently moving air which is precisely controlled for volume, temperature, and humidity, removes the exact amount of moisture from the capsule halves. Precision controls constantly monitor humidity, temperature, and gelatin viscosity throughout the production process.

Once drying is complete, the Pin Bars enter the Table section which positions the capsule halves for stripping from the Pins in the Automatic section. In the Automatic section, capsule halves are individually stripped from the Pins. The cap and body lengths are precisely trimmed to a ±0.15 mm tolerance. The capsule bodies and caps are joined automatically in the joiner blocks. Finished capsules are pushed onto a conveyer belt which carries them out to a container. Capsule quality is monitored throughout the production process including size, moisture content, single wall thickness, and color. Capsules are sorted and visually inspected. Capsules are now ready to be sterilized and packaged.

 Automatic Capsule Filling MachineAutomatic Capsule Filling Machine

  1. High Speed Automatic Capsule Filling machines are suitable for filling powders and pellets. These are versatile machinesAutomatic Capsule Filling Machine with several outstanding features both functional and mechanical.
  2. The machines have capabilities to give an output of 40,000 capsules and 90,000 capsules per hour with high filling accuracy and can accommodate capsule sizes.
  3. Capsule fillers are used to fill hard gelatin and non gelatin capsules with pre determined quantity of liquids, powders, pellets, tablets.
  4. Most machines conform to the GMP guidelines with various safety features for maximum operator protection.
  5. Capsules are normally fed into the machine, the filler then align, opens and accurately fills each capsule and recloses.
  6. Fillers generate minimum dust with lowest level of product loss. Non-separated, double loaded capsules and improperly inserted capsules are automatically rejected by machines to maintain the consistency in the quality of product.
  7. Most capsule fillers are characterized with fast changeover time to accommodate a variety of capsules in terms of shapes and size.
  8. High Quality Capsule Filling Machine requires minimal maintenance and easy to clean.
  9. Another important feature is the installation of speed adjusting equipment and automatic counters ensuring the right quantity of capsules being filled and packed.
