The Hanningfield CapsuJet C20 (Empty Capsule Transfer System) is a simple and efficient method for the gentle and repeatable transfer of empty capsules into the capsule filling machine.
Empty capsules are manually loaded into a large diameter, low -height capsule storage-hopper. The 200-litre storage-hopper has been designed to accommodate a full, standard-sized box of capsules. When in operation, a tangentially discharged airflow from a multistage fan is forced through a patented venturi.
The empty capsules in the storage hopper are gradually picked up by the suction created by the venturi and gently conveyed in a low- pressure, high-volume airflow through the conveying pipe work to the receiving hopper on the capsule-filling machine. A fully adjustable optical sensor controls the level of capsules in the receiving hopper on the capsule filling machine, by automatically starting and stopping the convey cycle.
The C20 is mounted to a mobile trolley and weighs approximately 150kgs assembled. The standard dimensions of the mobile frame unit are (H)1180mm x (W)760mm x (L)1215mm (which can be modified upon request).
