SMB International GmbH offers a canister filling system for the pharmaceutical industry. The machine features minimum space usage, a fast filling cycle, and simple yet effective cleaning and filling under cleanroom conditions.
The filling performance enables an output of 200 canisters per hour, each with a capacity of 25 liters. The filling system cubicle is made entirely of stainless steel, which is equipped with sliding and double-wing doors. The canisters are initially centralized at an upstream filling station. To meet the high turnover during the filling process, four cleaned and closed canisters are simultaneously transported together on apron conveyors. The canister caps are effectively screwed off and placed upon a cap conveyor. The canisters are then moved from the uncapping point to the subsequent ‘filling’ and ‘capping’ stations. Throughout the whole process, the canisters are transported on round, stainless steel rods that enable simple yet effective cleaning. Conveying is carried out by four pneumatic swivel catches mounted on a linear slide.
