What is Capsule Filling Machine

Capsule filling machine can fill unlocked empty hard gelatin with the drugs, including powder and pellets or liquid. It is more advantageous for capsule-encapsulated drugs than tablet. The tablets are pressed by a tablet press at pressures of up to several tons. The capsule drug is prepared without pressure. So after the capsule shell is dissolved, it is easier to absorb. However, the accuracy of the capsule loading are lower than tablet.

Why Use Capsule Packaging

Capsules usually mask the bad odor of the drug and are easy to take. After oral taking, it disperses rapidly in the gastrointestinal tract, which absorbs well. The gastrointestinal tract is stimulated little, so it is not easy to cause damage to the gastric mucosa.

Capsule-filled drugs are generally powders or granules which are irritating to the esophagus and gastric mucosa, or which are not good in taste, easy to volatilize, easily decomposed by saliva in the oral cavity, and easily inhaled into the trachea. These drugs are encapsulated to protect the drug from damage and protect the digestive organs and respiratory tract. Removing the capsule shell may result in drug loss, drug waste, and reduced efficacy. In addition, some drugs need to be dissolved and absorbed in the intestine, and capsule is a kind of protection that protects the drug from being damaged by gastric acid.

Capsule features

  • High bioavailability. Because the formulation does not add adhesive and pressure, the disintegration in the gastrointestinal tract is faster than the tablet and the absorption is better.
  • Improve drug stability. If the drug is sensitive to light and unstable to heat, it can be filled into capsules.
  • They can be made into capsules with high oil content.
  • The drug can be released at a time.
