Molding of suppositories in production

At present, automatic machines that produce suppositories in contoured cell packaging are widely used in the industry for pouring suppositories. This packaging is designed for packing the suppository mass into contoured cells with subsequent sealing, coding and cutting into strips of the required length. At enterprises of medium capacity machines for the production of suppositories use pre-formed tape, as the forming unit is quite expensive, difficult to set up and has high operating costs. Therefore, the use of such a unit in machines with low productivity is unprofitable. The use of pre-formed belt allows to reduce the area occupied by the machine and simplify the production process, as there is no need for compressed air, water and ventilation, as well as the removal of odors generated during forming. Let’s consider an installation with a capacity of 6000 cells per hour, consisting of three modules: an automatic machine for filling suppository containers, an installation for cooling suppositories and an automatic machine for sealing, cutting and coding of suppository containers.
Automatic machine BP-10 is designed for filling suppository containers (cells) with suppository mass. The machine uses pre-formed contoured” cell packing of tigga in spools. The suppository containers in the form of a ribbon are automatically fed from the loading disk of the machine “under the dispensing needle. The dosing range is from 0 to 3.5 ml. The product to be filled comes from a 25-liter hopper, which has a highly efficient mixing device and double walls for heating the suppository mass. The product in the hopper is in a molten state and has a constant temperature. The belt with filled cells is automatically fed to another disk, which after full filling goes to the unit for cooling.
In the meantime, a new spool with a molded contoured cell pack is placed in the BP-10 unit, and the filling operation can be started again. After filling of suppository containers the product is in liquid (or close to liquid) state, which makes the process of qualitative sealing of containers extremely difficult.
The natural cooling process of the product takes a long time and depends on the ambient temperature.

In addition, the heated pipeline protects the product from solidification. However, when producing suppositories on lipophilic bases (plastic film is usually used for their molding), which have a more liquid consistency and a low melting point (32-37 ° C), a peristaltic pump is used.
This is due to the fact that the active substances introduced into the base in the form of powder fraction can settle in the unheated pipeline or tank when the machine stops and during the slow passage of the product through the pipeline. The use of peristaltic pump allows to maintain the necessary temperature of the product, excludes its stagnation in the pipeline and settling of active substances, providing homogeneity of the suppository mass consistency. Cells are filled by inserting the filling needle into the cell opening, through which the liquid suppository mass enters. All process data is displayed on the touch screen, which is also used to set the filling volume of the cells. After the cells have been filled, the suppository belt enters the cooling unit. The product cooling process can be carried out in two or four stages, depending on the solidification time of the components that make up the suppository mass. Two-stage cooling utilizes two cooling spiral chambers installed in series, and four chambers are used for four-stage cooling. The time of two-stage cooling is 9 min and four-stage cooling is 18 min. Thanks to the spiral tracks, the suppositories are cooled on both sides by a temperature-controlled air flow until the product is fully solidified, thus obtaining the optimal shape.
The cooled contour cells are fed into the sealing unit. At first, the suppository strip is preheated, after which the top of the contour cells is sealed. The use of the preheating stage, as well as in the molding unit, ensures qualitative and reliable sealing of the package.
After sealing the cells, the code or date is applied, the cells are perforated for easy cell separation and the top edge of the tape is trimmed. The suppositories can come out of the machine in the form of a ribbon (if docking with the cartoning machine is carried out through a special docking module) or in the form of cut blisters. The number of suppositories in a blister is set from the machine control panel.

Technical specifications

Therefore, the use in the cooling stage allows a significant reduction in the curing time of the product, as well as making the process manageable and controllable. When the suppository mass in the cooling unit is fully cured, the spool with the finished product is transferred to an automatic container sealing and ribbon cutting machine. In the machine, the ribbon is sealed and cut into sections with the specified number of cells. Sealing is carried out by pulse heating and compression. The stable temperature of the sealing tool is ensured by two high-power fans. Simultaneously with sealing the coding operation is carried out. Coding of containers (series and date) is carried out by extrusion by means of a cliché. After sealing, the edges of the tape are automatically processed. This operation allows to significantly improve the appearance of the finished product. To control the process of cutting the tape into strips of a given length, a digital programmer is used, which sets the cutting range from 1 to 10 suppositories. The machines allow the production of suppositories in contoured cell packs made of aluminum and thermoformed plastic. In contrast to medium-capacity production, in the high-capacity industrial machines, the molding of the contour cells is done directly in the machine. High-precision machine with low noise level and high productivity (up to 22 thousand suppositories per hour). The machine is controlled through a programmable logic controller (PLC). The automatic machine has an optimal mode of operation, which avoids the formation of waste in the production process. The production process of suppositories begins with the formation of contoured cell packaging made of plastic film or aluminum foil. Two rolls of plastic film (one roll – printed, from which the front part of the suppository package is molded, the second roll – unprinted) are installed on roll holders. Plastic films from both rolls simultaneously enter the pre-heating unit, where they are quickly heated to the required temperature. The required film tension is regulated by a special device. The preheated plastic films are fed to the contour cell-shaped plastic film heat-welding unit.

Additional information

In this way, the two films are joined together over the entire surface, except for the interior of the cells. Then the film enters the molding unit, where, by blowing compressed air into the unsoldered space, the contoured cell is volumetrically molded. At the same time, a small hole remains open in the upper part of each cell, through which the cell is subsequently filled with suppository mass. In case of aluminum foil packaging production, the contour cell forming unit dismantles the units designed to work with plastic film – film preheating unit, film heat-welding unit and forming unit. The aluminum foil cell forming unit is installed in their place. Due to its heavy weight, this unit is installed in the machine by means of a lifting mechanism. It should be noted that the units are common for both types of packaging. Two rolls of aluminum foil (one printed and one unprinted) are installed on the roll holders. The foil tension is adjusted by the device. The aluminum foil strips from both rolls are fed in parallel to the contour cell forming unit, where the contour of the cell is mechanically extruded on the surface of the aluminum foil strip. Thus, in contrast to plastic foil, no preheating or compressed air is required for forming cells from aluminum foil. Two unconnected ribbons with the molded halves of the contoured cells exit the forming unit. The two strips are then joined together so that the cell halves are completely overlapping and are fed into the assembly where the strips are heated and finally thermally welded together. At the same time, as in the case of the plastic film, an opening is left open at the top of each cell for the introduction of the suppository mass. In this way, the contour cell formed of plastic film or aluminum foil serves at the same time as an injection mold. The plastic or aluminum foil-formed package is fed into the filling unit in the form of a ribbon. The suppository mass, heated to a temperature of 30-80 ° C, depending on the active ingredient and base from the reservoir comes through a pipeline to the volumetric dispenser, from where the product is automatically loaded into the cells.
To maintain the required temperature and homogeneous consistency of the suppository mass, the 80-liter reservoir is equipped with a water jacket and a stirrer. In the production of glycerin-based suppositories with a viscous consistency (they are usually molded in aluminum foil), the agitator provides homogeneous mixing of the suppository mass, heated to a temperature of about 80 ° C.
