Capsule Filler Low Dosages and Extreme Precision

Editor: Dr. Jörg Kempf

MG2’s Flexalab is a capsule filler specifically designed for R&D laboratories, clinical trials, small batch outputs and special productions. For productions up to 3000 cps/h, it is based on the same functioning principles as MG2 high speed machines.

The capsule filler can work either at continuous or intermittent motion, depending on the type of dosing unit installed. Thanks to the possibility to install more dosing units at the same time, it enables to make product combinations inside the same capsule, in order to guarantee the maximum flexibility required by Research & Development laboratories and small producers. A containment version of the Flexalab is also available.

A containment version of the Flexalab is also available. The containment system features a particular liftable isolator concept, which allows the machine to keep its peculiarity to change different dosing units. This result is obtained while ensuring proper production safety, for both the operator and the environment; in fact, the system allows the machine to satisfy the highest containment class, OEL5, guaranteeing a concentration of active substance — less than 1 µg per cubic metre, MG2 says.

The Flexalab containment version can be equipped with a Wet-in-Place system, which allows to fix powders when the production cycle ends, before opening the isolator. Through the same spray gun it is possible to use both liquids and compressed air.

By adding some spray balls and other devices, Flexalab is configured for a complete Wash-In-Place system, to further automate the cleaning process. Other optional devices enable to customize the production outfeed to an external container or a continuous liner, as well as the connection to other devices, such as a deduster or a metal detector.
