This company manufactures and sells two-piece, hard gelatin drug capsules that pharmaceutical and nutraceutical companies use for their products. The company wanted an automatic parts washer to make their pharma cleaning process more efficient and effective.
The print on these tiny capsules is applied by special printing machines and these machines need to be cleaned on a regular basis. The machinery gets completely torn down and every component is methodically washed. This process was being done by hand at great expense.
The solution was an F-3000-P turntable washer with special user-friendly racks that protect the delicate parts (especially the print rollers) from getting scratched. This stainless steel unit has a 30-inch diameter turntable and special fixtures to hold the parts. The system processes the parts through wash and rinse stages. Parts are washed at over 180° for sanitizing to help prevent cross-contamination between batches. A center-drop manifold helps ensure that the parts are cleaned on all sides.
Additional system features include a dual-channel 7-day/24-hour timer, low water shutdown and automatic fill, a fresh rinse cycle with automatic diversion, in-line micron filtration, and an oil skimmer.
