October 28, 2019
The automatic capsule filling machine integrates machine, electricity and gas, adopts microcomputer programmable controller, touch panel operation, frequency conversion speed regulation, and is equipped with electronic automatic counting device. The machine is sensitive in action, accurate in filling dose, novel in structure, beautiful in appearance, convenient in operation, and can automatically complete the action of in place, separation, filling and locking of the capsule. It can reduce labor intensity, increase production efficiency, and meet pharmaceutical hygiene requirements. This device is therefore widely used to fill a variety of capsules. Its highly efficient automatic capsule filling efficiency has been well received. So how do operators properly maintain this mechanical device?
Here are a few things to keep in mind during the cleaning process:
First, the frequency of cleaning: 1. Before production, after production the machine need to be cleaned and disinfected; 2. It must be cleaned when changing varieties, specifications, batch numbers; 3. Equipment must be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after repair.
Second, detergents and disinfectants: drinking water, purified water, 75% ethanol.
