• Automatic Ampoule Washing Machine


Automatic Ampoule Washing Machine is specially designed to wash Ampoule with minimum contact of machine parts with Ampoules. Machine with specially designed Gripper system holds the Ampoule from Neck and invert the Ampoule till the washing operation completed and again after washing release the Ampoule on outfeed feedworm system in vertical position ensures positive wash of Ampoules. Machine is suitable to wash 1ml to 10 ml Ampoules with the help of change parts, Ampoule feeds through feedworm to infeed Star Wheel and specially designed Gripper hold the Ampoule from neck and invert the Ampoule and move it further on rotary moving system for washing process.

Process Operation of Automatic Ampoule Washing Machine

Ampoules feed from the Infeed tray are received on an Infeed Feedworm then moves on Infeed starwheel. The Grippers picks up the Ampoule from Infeed Star Wheel and invert it in neck down position over washing needles and move along with the needle bar for Washing. On completion of a cycle, washed Ampoules are again inverted to neck upward position and feed to output star wheel. Washed Ampoules received from output starwheel can be collected on Output Tray or can be pushed to tunnel. A separate pumping station (optional) gives the right quantum of water at the desired pressure. In the absent of separate pumping station we can provide the re-circulation & siliconization system on request.
