Desiccant canisters play an important role in the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries. They ensure that medicines are preserved and not affected by moisture, mold, rust, and micro-organisms. Inserting desiccants manually inside pharmaceutical or nutraceutical bottles can be very time consuming. Having automated solution might help increasing efficiency and saving costs.
The CVC’s 1112 Canister Desiccant Inserter is designed to sort and dispense desiccant barrels into containers. It operates at a speed of up to 150 bottles per minute and can run independently or be integrated into an automated packaging line. The machine is fully automated, controlled by a programmable logic control (PLC) system and servo motor. It can be programmed to allow the insertion of up to 5 desiccant canisters per container without any additional changing parts.
The Canister Desiccant has a small discharge passage with an insertion gate right next to the bottle opening, for positive insertion of desiccants. It is equipped with precision photoelectric sensors to make its operation extremely accurate. It also has a front safety guard which, when opened allows to stop the machine automatically.
