Pills Escaping During Blister Packaging
A plastic film is formed to have pockets and then sent to the filling process by roll transfer, which causes the film to be highly charged with static electricity.
Pills are also charged by the friction with a guide rail during transfer by a feeder bowl. Some pills jump out of the pockets due to repulsion with the charged film.
- Since problems are found after they occur, it is impossible to prevent defective products from being produced.
- The operating ratio decreases.
Countermeasures with static eliminators (ionizers)
Ions eliminate static electricity, which helps prevent foreign particles from clinging and avoids defective packaging. The operating ratio can be improved.
