Gelatin for capsules 

 

This company acting in the pharmaceutical sector is one of the world's leading suppliers of capsules.

Objectives:

1. Ensure the supply of raw gelatine in the melter (separation of fines and grain)

2. Move from the storage room to the grey area and then to the white area, without contamination

3. Select and dose the gelatins before introducing them in the melters through the bottom of the tank

4. Ensure the conveying of gelatins in under pressure reactors and at high temperatures

The pneumatic conveying system includes a conveying cyclone, a vacuum pump with butterfly valve and includes particle size separation

The dosing and induction hopper can be completely emptied

The EasyFlow® big bag emptying station is hygienic and is equipped with a handling stand.

A control cabinet completes the installation.

Palamatic Process has developed a very specific design to ensure maximum hygiene for all zone transitions: pallet change / handling cage, channelled conveying air from the clean room.

The pneumatic conveying system VFlow® provides a multiple function, thus minimizing the number of equipment installed.

Functions performed: dosing, granulometric separation, conveying, introduction into the melter.

This innovative concept has become a Palamatic Process feature. The design of the pneumatic conveying system allows a minimum of equipment for a maximum of functionalities.
