Sky Softgel Combined Canister and Pouch Desiccant Inserter

The Sky Softgel Combined Canister and Pouch Desiccant Inserter can be supplied with tablet, capsule, or softgel bottling lines where multiple products are run, each requiring a different type of desiccant. The inserter adds the canister or pouch to the bottle after it has been filled with tablets but before it is capped. You can choose which to insert, and how many pieces, depending on your application.

Sky Softgel is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of tablet counters. Originally developed for counting clear softgels, their tablet counter handles even the toughest products. The model SMC counter is available in a single, dual, quad, or twin head configurations for various tablet and bottle feed rates. The Sky line of tablet counters is unique in the industry because, through a proprietary algorithm, it fills even the first bottle at startup accurately. It does not reject the first bottle like most counters.

To supplement the electronic counters, Sky offers all the ancillaries required to make a complete bottle filling line. Instead of buying components individually from different vendors, buy a complete line from Thomas Packaging and Sky so that you can test the entire line together before shipment. We offer everything required for a bottle filling line from unscramblers and turn tables for infeed to the labeler and turntable at the end of the line. These components can be bought as part of a complete bottle filling line or purchased separately.
