The line includes several units from production equipment manufacturer PneumaticScaleAngelus featuring unscrambling, filling, checkweighing, metal detection, capping, induction sealing, bundling and casepacking equipment. It’s capable of filling speeds up to 300 bottles per minute, with a bottle size capacity of 5” in diameter and 10” in height.
The new bottling line is housed in a new, specially-built ISO 8 Class 100,000 controlled environment designed for non-sterile Rx pharmaceutical-grade oral products.
The company recently expanded its production facility in Union, adding approximately 55,000 sq.-ft. of manufacturing space, bringing the facility’s total area to 155,000 sq-ft. Included in the expansion is another high-speed bottling line, as well as a 20,000-sq-ft building housing an analytical/microbial lab and additional warehousing space.
“Adding this specially tailored, high-speed bottling line is an example of Pharma Tech’s willingness and ability to adapt to evolving customer needs,” said Tee Noland, chairman and chief executive officer of Pharma Tech Industries. “Pharma Tech takes great pride in growing and enhancing its manufacturing and packaging capabilities, as we build upon our widely acknowledged record of high quality and seamless service to all our customers.”
