Empty hard capsules are widely used in the modern medicine and healthcare products industry, and they are also a very common type of packaging. In addition, the production process conditions of empty hard capsules are relatively advanced, so it not only inherits the advantages of capsule products but also develops other more suitable types of empty hard capsules according to the properties of the contents, such as enteric-coated type and water-soluble type. Let's take a look at the production method and process of empty hard capsules.
Before making empty hard capsules, it is necessary to create process conditions suitable for the production of empty hard capsules. Generally speaking, the empty hard capsules production workshop needs to maintain a constant temperature, constant humidity, and sterile environment. The batching room, pill pressing room, drying room, and pill sorting room should be equipped with corresponding temperature and moderate conditions. Only then can the production of empty hard capsules be carried out. Usually, there are mainly two production methods for empty hard capsules: the drop method and the pressing method.
After solving the process conditions of empty hard capsules production, the ingredients can be prepared for production. At this time, the capsule material and glue should be prepared first. According to the formula of the capsule material, soak the gelatin in distilled water to make it expand, after the gelatin is melted, add other materials together, stir and mix evenly; the second step is to make a film. Take out the prepared capsule material glue, apply it on the flat surface of the board to make the thickness uniform, then heat it at a temperature of about 90°C to evaporate the surface water, and become a soft film with certain toughness and elasticity, and then press it empty hard capsules. In mass production, an automatic rotary capsule rolling machine is often used for production.
Advanced technology and strict production process conditions will produce high-quality products. It is not only suitable for most functional health foods today but is also often used in the packaging of pharmaceuticals. And it has become more and more popular in recent years, and now it has become a very popular type of health food packaging.
Enteric capsules are widely used in modern healthcare products. It is a form of healthcare product packaging that is easily absorbed by the human body and has a very high absorption and utilization rate of active ingredients. In layman's terms, it is a capsule that can only be dissolved and absorbed in the small intestine of the human body. The following will give you a comprehensive understanding of enteric capsules.
During the production process of enteric capsules, the selection and processing of the capsule skin are very careful. To achieve the established goal, it is necessary to add special pharmaceutical polymer materials or special treatment in the capsule shell so that it does not dissolve in gastric juice and only disintegrates and dissolves in intestinal juice. The capsule will not be dissolved in the stomach or soaked in water or even boiling water. Enteric capsules need to meet alkaline liquid in the intestinal tract to dissolve, while gastric acid is acidic, so empty hard capsules will not be dissolved in the stomach. If the enteric capsules melt in the stomach, it may cause damage to the stomach.
The capsule skin used by enteric capsules is also very safe, and it is also very particular about its processing and production. Nowadays, many empty hard capsule products are gelatin capsules. The main component of the capsule skin is gelatin. Health care products and medicinal gelatin are high-grade rubber products made of animal skin, bones, and tendons through complex physical and chemical treatments. It has high viscosity. , high freezing force, easy to freeze, and other physical characteristics. The digestive organs of the human body are mainly the stomach and intestines. The stomach is mainly in an acidic environment, while the intestine is in an alkaline environment. So according to this principle, there are generally two types of empty hard capsules, one is dissolved in the stomach, and the other is dissolved in the intestine. Because some drugs are more irritating to the stomach and have harmful effects, but have no harm to the intestines. So for this kind of health product, it is necessary to make this kind of enteric-coated capsule.
Due to the different ingredients of medicines and health products, enteric capsules are often required to ensure that there is no adverse effect on the stomach. And some health care products have a better intestinal absorption effect, which can not only reduce the erosion and damage of stomach acid to the healthcare products, but also reduce the unpleasant smell after eating.
