Process Operation

Pre-Sterilized D Type Ampoule tray can be directly loaded into slant hopper of the machine. The magazine type cassette delivers closed ampoules on moving eccentric ampoule rack in one/two/four/six/eight’s. Ampoule rotating lever rotate the ampoules and extreme pressure of the gas heat the ampoules. Ampoule opening process is done by the manner of pre-heating and opening with the pressure of the gas (LPG + oxygen). During the stoppage of rack sequentially ampoule opening, pre-gassing, filling, post gassing, pre-heating and final sealing is achieved. Filled & sealed ampoules are collected automatically in SS tray in upright position without hand touch.
