KIrby Lester KL50 — QC counts and small- to mid-volume bottling

Kirby Lester KL50 — QC counts and small- to mid-volume bottling

The Kirby Lester KL50 is ideal for semi-automatic bottle filling for small batches, clinical supplies, and other applications requiring small batches. The KL50 includes a vibratory bowl and two discharge chutes. Put the tablets into the bowl and start the unit. The unit fills the required count into the bottle below the left discharge chute. When the proper count is reached, the KL 50 automatically starts filling the bottle below the right discharge chute while the operator removes the full bottle from the left discharge chute and replaces it with an empty bottle. This process continues until the required number of bottles are filled.

This device counts and bottles in a semi-automatic process, eliminating manual counting and improving accuracy. Choose from two models. Use the KL50ic as a fast, accurate check-counter. The KL50icf, with its high-capacity rotating hopper, is ideal for both QC counting as well as smaller-scale bottling runs, clinical trial preparation, or other applications.
  • High-speed counting system for QC batch verification, packing filling tablets or capsules into bottles, or batch-counting identical-shaped parts
  • Fast, accurate counting using Kirby Lester technology (up to 1,920 parts/minute, adjustable)
  • No adjustments to count different products
  • Small footprint, simple operation and cleaning
  • Adjustable counting speed
  • Two versions: The KL50ic holds up to 500 size-0 capsules and is an ideal device for stock bottle QC counts; the KL50icf accommodates an additional 1,800 capsules (2 liters) in the removable rotating hopper to manage short- to medium-volume bottle-filling runs, as well as QC counts.
