Capsule filling is one of the last steps in pharmaceutical manufacturing. Piab vacuum conveyors can be used for both transporting powder for capsule filling and transporting finished capsules to the next process step, for example, packaging.
Manual feeding of the powder can be replaced by a vacuum conveyor since powder pick up is possible from a barrel or container. This helps to ensure better productivity and safety of employees due to a reduced risk of exposure to hazardous materials.
All Piab vacuum conveyors meet low noise requirements, are modular in design and have a small footprint with capacity to fit in most environments. Maintenance, regular cleaning, and filter changes are easily done to minimize your production's down time.
