Pharma and Nutraceuticals
Pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products may include items such as eye drops, cough medicine, vitamins and liquid drugs. The key to packaging pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products is the sanitary design of the packaging system. Several alternatives are available to ensure that the product pathway, and the product itself, does not become contaminated during the filling and packaging process.
A typical pharmaceutical or nutraceutical packaging system is shown below:
This system includes:
- An overflow filler for free flowing products;
- A stainless steel spindle capper for continuous product capping;
- Turntables for container loading and product accumulation;
- A sanitary power conveyor system to move products through the packaging process.
This typical pharmaceutical and nutraceutical packaging line will not be ideal for every application. A variety of filling and capping equipment is available to meet the individual needs of each individual product.
In addition, the packaging line can expand to include other packaging equipment. Container cleaning equipment, including rinsing machines and bottle vacuums, remove dust and debris from bottles prior to the filling process. The container cleaning equipment helps keep the packaging process sanitary as well. Other packaging equipment can include, but is not limited to, an induction sealer for tamper evident seals, an automatic labeler to quickly and consistently apply labels to the containers, and/or a coder to print expiration dates, batch numbers and more on the container.
