Capsule Conveyors



Technical Description

The Hanningfield CapsuJet capsule conveying system is a proven method for the gentle conveying of hard-shelled gelatin capsules. Designed to overcome the problems of conventional mechanical systems, the CapsuJet is ideal for the automatic loading and unloading of capsule filling machines.

The CapsuJet C20 capsule conveyors are designed for the loading of empty capsules from ground level into the capsule filling machine. The C20 is capable of loading up to 300,000 capsules per hour.

The CapsuJet FCC capsule conveyors are designed for the unloading of capsule filling machines, transferring filled capsules to a downstream container or process. The FCC can transfer up to 200,00 capsules per hour.

As standard, both capsule transfer system models are constructed with all contact parts manufactured from 316L stainless steel (180 grit), with FDA compliant seals, gaskets etc. Non-contact parts such as frames, motor covers and control panels are manufactured from 304 stainless steel (150 grit). All standard materials of construction and surface finishes can be upgraded or downgraded upon request. All equipment can be fully customised to satisfy specific application requirements and can be supplied with full validation documents (FS/DS, FAT, SAT, IQ/OQ) and mill certificates to EN10204 (3.1)
