3 TABLET PRESS or PACKING MACHINE: Segregation free filling
This DT system was developed for a segregation free transfer of mixed powders by gravity. It prevents segregation effects of powder specially when being transfered into a tablet press or into a packaging line by free falling through a tube. The use of our segregation free system will considerably reduce your production waste. This higher output per batch lead to a growing economic efficiency and a better product quality.
The technology is comparable to „pneumatic pigging“ with no internal tubing. The system (designed according to GMP rules) is driven by controlled pneumatic air. Additionally the system guarantees a smooth and safe transfer of sensitive products (i.e. tablets, chips, pills etc.). The staggered position between outlet of mixer, docking station or other installations and inlet of packaging machines is adjustable up to drop angle of nearly 60°.
To assure a good cleanability we avoid wearing parts such as “sleeves” or “inliner” to replace. Also there is no risk of contamination by damaged PE inliner as at conventional lined pipe systems. Additionally it is easy to adapt at existing installations in your production. The segregation effect can happen even at low falling hights. Therefore our installation length start at 0,5 m and reaches up to 6 m.
Summarizing the main advantages:
• GMP Design: no “sleeves” or “bags” to replace
• Completely contained system
• operating at various angles
• external WIP or CIP link to the blender or docking station on top
The positioning of the pneumatic filler head (plunger) in “pick up position” of powder is effected by means of pneumatic air. After reaching its top position the hand over of product can be made. The set up of the suitable “rate of descent” for each medium is individually adjustable and avoids any segregation effect initiated by gravity. Reaching the outlet point (at bottom position) the integrated pinch valve opens slowly and release product flow.
The inner surfaces of the down pipe are “honed” to “mirror” finish so that “Scraper” seals assure an always clean transport tube proved by a swap test. The plunger head has an integrated “Pinch Valve” for powder loading and discharge, driven by compressed air with no external power supply connections.
