Case study: Patheon installs Bosch contained capsule filler, first in North America

Patheon, based in Durham, NC, chose Bosch’s GKF HiProTect 1700 encapsulator for use in commercial production and a Bosch GKF Protect 702 encapsulator for use by colleagues in its Product Development Services group. The HiProTect 1700, designed and built for containment, keeps operators isolated from the product while it operates and during maintenance and cleaning. It fills as many as 100,000 capsules per hour with powders or pellets and can be equipped to handle micro-tablets, liquids, and combination fills. The machine’s checkweigher adjusts capsule fill weights as it works to keep products on-spec.
