Nilfisk introduces a pneumatic conveying regimen to effectively transfer capsules. Nilfisk’s 9505 stainless steel pneumatic conveyor designed for the transfer of empty 00-5 sized capsules effectively conveys capsules without dispersion.

With the use of air power, the conveyor pushes capsules through rigid sanitary piping into a hopper above the capsule-filling machine without damaging the capsules. The conveyed material is kept in an isolated environment from picking to the release point.

The 9505 ensures capsules are emptied into a collection container and dispensed at an adjustable rate into a capsule-filling machine. Two portholes on the top of the machine allow the operator to check the level of capsules in the container while the machine is running.

Nilfisk’s 9505 pneumatic conveying regimen increases automation and health and safety by eliminating the task of manually filling capsules into process machines. Conveying can reduce staffting requirements and load times by more than 50%. The Nilfisk product conveying process takes place in perfect hygienic conditions, repsecting both the environment and the operators’ health.

Nilfisk vacuums are integral to the production process of nearly every major pharmaceutical company worldwide with products ranging from portable, intermittent-duty vacuums for general cleaning, to continuous-duty models for process-integrated applications, to central systems.
