Routine maintenance of automatic liquid capsule filling machine

1. Cleaning and Sanitization:

Proper cleaning and disinfection to prevent cross-contamination and ensure product quality.

– Start by disconnecting the machine from the power source and removing any remaining capsules or liquid.

– Use a soft brush or vacuum cleaner to remove dust, debris, and residue from the machine's exterior and interior components.

– Prepare a cleaning solution by diluting a suitable detergent in warm water. Wipe down all surfaces, including the hopper, filling nozzles, and conveyor belts, using a clean cloth or sponge.

– Rinse all components thoroughly with clean water to remove any detergent residue.

– Allow the machine to dry completely before reassembling and reconnecting it.


2.Increased Lubrication

Proper lubrication ensures smooth operation and reduces friction between moving parts.

– Refer to the manufacturer's instructions to identify the specific lubrication points on the machine.

– Use a high-quality food-grade lubricant recommended by the manufacturer.

– Apply the lubricant sparingly to the designated points, ensuring that it reaches all necessary areas.

– Wipe off any excess lubricant to prevent contamination of the capsules or liquid.


3. Inspection and Replacement of Wear Parts:

Inspect worn parts regularly to identify any signs of damage or wear.

– Filling nozzles: Check for any clogs, cracks, or signs of wear. Replace damaged nozzles immediately.

– Conveyor belts: Inspect for any tears, fraying, or misalignment. Replace worn-out belts to maintain smooth capsule transportation.

– Seals and gaskets: Examine for leaks, cracks, or deterioration. Replace damaged seals and gaskets to prevent liquid leakage and ensure proper sealing.


4. Calibration and Adjustment:

Regularly calibrate and adjust machine settings to maintain accurate fill levels and capsule weights.

– Use a calibrated weighing scale to verify the accuracy of the machine's filling volumes.

– Adjust the machine's settings as per the desired specifications, ensuring precise filling volumes and weights.

– Consult the machine's manual or contact the manufacturer for detailed instructions on calibration and adjustment procedures.
