Multisorb Technologies Introduces APA-9000 High-Speed Canister Dispenser
New Equipment Delivers Enhanced Performance and Efficiency to Packaging Operations
Buffalo, NY (October 5, 2009) - Multisorb Technologies, the global leader in active packaging technologies, introduces its new APA-9000 high-speed canister dispenser for healthcare product packaging applications. The APA-9000 dispenses Multisorb's extensive line of high-performance sorbent canisters, including SorbiCap®, Multiform CSF(TM) and StabilOx®, offering an integrated system solution to customers. This system lends productivity and efficiency to packaging operations, resulting in significant time and cost savings.
Capable of dispensing up to 325 canisters per minute, the high-speed, automatic APA-9000 boosts production speeds to help manufacturers bring their products to market faster. The dispenser can be customized to run in a variety of lines including bottling, VFFS, flow wrapper, thermoform and pouching machinery, offering considerable manufacturing flexibility.
Equipped with an Allen-Bradley PLC for enhanced automation, the APA-9000 incorporates dual gravity feed bowls, which are fed from dual respective hoppers with a cleated conveyor and offers FIFO dispensing control. Each hopper is designed to accommodate a full 4,000 canisters from a single pail or box for high-volume production runs.
Each gravity feed bowl is run alternately to ensure FIFO control and to minimize exposure and related loss in capacity of the sorbent canisters. For bottling applications, the APA-9000 dispenser offers a servo-motor operated bottle indexing screw to ensure precision in operation.
The APA-9000 can be tailored for specific customer applications to include an optional dry air system or an inert gas purge. These additions provide a controlled atmosphere around the canisters from the hopper through the point of dispensing to allow for extended exposure time of the canisters during commercial packaging operations.
The APA-9000 is the newest addition to Multisorb's family of integrated system solutions, which are designed for a variety of applications in the pharmaceutical, medical device and food markets, including:
MAPLOXSM (Modified Atmosphere Packaging Low Oxygen) System
StripPax® System = StripPax® Packets + StripPax® Dispensers
StabilOx® System = StabilOx® Packets + StabilOx® Dispensers
FreshPax® System = FreshPax® Packets + FreshPax® Dispensers
Multisorb's system solutions are an integral part of the company's Calculations through OperationsSM QbD-based design service program, designed to help companies identify and incorporate the right moisture and/or oxygen management solution to preserve the efficacy of their products.
