The Hanningfield CapsuJet FCC (Filled Capsule Transfer System) is a simple and efficient method for the gentle and repeatable transfer of filled capsules.
The FCC features a compact design enabling it to be located adjacent to the capsule filling machine within the process room. This allows the feed chute on the FCC to be positioned directly beneath the outlet of the capsule filler or capsule polisher.
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.
From here, filled capsules are gravity fed into the system, where the specially designed venturi creates a cushioning airstream in the pipe-work, to gently transport the capsules downstream to a bulk container (or similar).
The system uses an easy-clean design, primarily assembled using Tri-Clover clamps; this allows the system to be quickly dismantled without the need for special tooling. Mounted to a mobile trolley, the unit weighs approximately 100kgs. The standard dimensions of the mobile frame unit are (H)1150mm x (W)500mm x (L)885mm (which can be modified upon request).
