In the highest volume pharmaceutical production environments, capsule filling needs to be extremely accurate whilst providing increased throughput in order to improve efficiency. Equipment that is designed to minimize downtime becomes particularly important in larger-scale production.
The Sejong Pharmatech F180 series is a high capacity capsule filling solution with cutting edge features that can operate at up to 184,000 units per hour.
The F180’s proprietary drive system has been designed to offer maximum speed and performance whilst minimizing maintenance through reduced vibration. In addition, the modular nature of the system allows for rapid and straightforward replacement of individual components, keeping downtime to a minimum.
Further innovation includes the provision of an automated capsule jam removal system. Using high pressure air, the machine can self-clear without the need for any disassembly, saving valuable time.
Because increased speed must not lead to a reduction in quality, the F180 is fitted with a 5 stage compression moulding system to ensure the optimum capsule fill even at highest speeds.
In addition, the comprehensive AWC (automatic weight control) functions reject any doses that are not filled within tolerance, as well as automatically rejected any faulty capsules that have not fully closed, or where the capsule sleeve has been damaged.
To meet your exact needs and offer full flexibility, the F180 is able to handle a wide variety of encapsulated dosage types, including powders, pellets and tablets. It can also fill capsules with a mixture of these doses, allowing scope for the production of a large number of products.
The control system is fully 21CFR part 11 compliant, with graphical touchscreen control for ease of operation and monitoring of performance.
