Capsujet - Capsuel transfer


The Capsujet conveying system, originally designed and patented by

Hanningfield in 1995, remains the best and most efficient solution for

the conveying of hard shell capsules in industry today.


The Capsujet is a proven system in the transfer of hard-shelled gelatin

capsules. Designed and built to overcome the problems associated with

conventional mechanical systems, the Capsujet is ideal for the automatic

loading of high-speed capsule filling machines.


Empty capsules are manually loaded into a large diameter, low -height

capsule storage-hopper. The 200-litre storage-hopper has been designed

to accommodate a full, standard sized box of capsules. When in operation,

a tangentially discharged airflow from a multistage fan is forced through a

patented venturi. The empty capsules in the storage hopper are gradually

picked up by the suction created by the venturi and gently conveyed in a

low- pressure, high-volume airflow through the conveying pipe work to the

receiving hopper on the capsule-filling machine. A fully adjustable optical

sensor controls the level of capsules in the receiving hopper on the capsule

filling machine, by automatically starting and stopping the convey cycle.


In addition to loading empty capsule into the filling machine, it is also

possible to transfer filled capsules after filling using a Filled Capsule

version of the Capsujet.
