From a global perspective, the pharmaceutical capsule market has a high industry concentration, especially the production of pharmaceutical hollow capsules is relatively concentrated, and some large enterprises occupy most of the market share.
The future market size of medicinal capsules will show a steady growth trend with the growth of the pharmaceutical industry.
As one of the indispensable equipment for the production of medicinal capsules, the automatic capsule filling machine will also usher in a huge development opportunity.
Capsule filling machine integrates machine, electricity and gas, adopts microcomputer programmable controller, touch panel operation, frequency conversion and speed regulation, and is equipped with electronic automatic technology device, which can automatically complete the actions of capsule broadcasting, separation, filling, and capsule locking. , reduce labor intensity, improve production efficiency, and meet the requirements of pharmaceutical hygiene GMP, which is also very strict for cleaning requirements.
Let us first take a look at the preparations of manufacturers before cleaning.
(1) Cleaning frequency: ① After the end of each batch of production; ② After the end of each shift of continuous production; ③ Cleaning before and after production; ④ Cleaning when changing varieties, specifications, and batch numbers; ⑤ Overall cleaning after equipment maintenance.
(2) Cleaning tools: clean non-spinning cloth, vacuum cleaner, brush, cleaning basin, etc.
(3) Cleaning agent and agent: drinking water, purified water, 75% ethanol.
(4) Cleaning method: in the order of dismantling first and then washing, first inside and then outside, first zero and then whole.
Structural characteristics of automatic capsule filling machine
1. The machine has beautiful appearance, fine craftsmanship, simple operation and convenient use. The design integrates the filling seat with the metering disc, which improves filling and prolongs service life.
2. The bad capsules can be automatically removed, and the medicines in the bad capsules can be recycled and reused to increase economic benefits.
3. The machine is easy to disassemble and clean, and can change various types of molds. In addition, 800, 1000 and 1200 molds can be used interchangeably on the same machine to meet different production capacity requirements.
4. The interior of the fuselage is designed with dust collection, vacuum suction pipe, and waste removal pipe to avoid hardening and damage of the trachea and air leakage, which is convenient for cleaning the workbench and meets the requirements of GMP.
5. The filling rod gong cap is made of stainless steel instead of the original plastic gong cap to avoid damage. The workbench reduces gongs and drums, which is convenient for cleaning ears and makes the whole machine more beautiful.
