Application

The empty raw capsules and the active ingredient pellets are stored above the filling machine. Reliable level measurement is required here to ensure a continuous supply to the process. The capsules are only lightly stuck together and can be easily sucked apart by a vacuum, so that the upper part separates from the lower part. The pellets are then filled into the lower part of the capsule. After filling, the capsules are transported to the collecting vessels via a hose system. A level detection system serves as overfill protection in these containers.
