We respond to the needs of the sector in the production of soft-gel capsules in supplements. The selection of raw materials is very important in the production of soft capsules. We produce the best raw materials. Soft capsules are one-piece capsules. It is formed by encapsulating liquids and is more flexible than hard capsules.
The production systems available for soft capsules are as follows;
Production by plate method
Rotary mold production
Production with Accogel method
Soft gelatin capsules are generally filled with liquid substances, liquid mixtures, solutions, suspensions. The liquid-filled into the capsule should not interact with the capsule wall. The pH of the liquid should be between 2.5 and 7.5 and it should not contain more than 5% water and alcohol. In this way, the capsules release more easily and have high absorption.
We increase our production level with our quality every day. As a result of the examinations and researches carried out by our laboratories in our production park, capsules are produced between 150 mg - 2500 mg. Different types of capsules can be produced in spherical, oval, tube, oblong shapes. We also offer flavored chewable, explosive capsules. We fill food supplements into soft capsules with the latest technology.
ADVANTAGES OF SOFT GELATIN CAPSULES
Compared to other methods of administration, soft gelatin capsules are administered orally which is very easy to swallow.
Soft gelatin capsules are taste and odorless.
The soft gelatin capsules are closed so that they protect the inner filling against oxidation and deterioration.
Opaque soft gelatin capsules also protect the inner filler material from UV radiation and light damage.
Thanks to its elegant appearance, it improves patient compliance.
Suitable for drugs such as semi-liquid, fat and liquid forms.
Five Steps of Soft Gel Capsule Manufacturing:
1-Gelatin Preparation: It is the process of mixing and heating the granulated gelatin and other materials in warm water in the melting tank of gelatin. With appropriate heat, stirring and vacuum, the components form a viscous syrup called "gel mass" for use in the encapsulation process. Color can be added during the melting process or on a separate machine.
Explanation Gelatin preparation tanks are used to melt the gelatin for soft gel capsule processing.
The tanks are equipped with a jacket filled with water, which is heated to predetermined temperatures by electrical heaters mounted on the tank bottom. During the melting process, the paddle wheels stir the solution, while the vacuum is applied for venting. Explanation Gel Transfer Tanks are used to easily transfer prepared gelatin to gel capsule production.
2-Filling Material Preparation: It is the process of preparing the water-free oil or paste material to be encapsulated. The preparation equipment may include tanks, mixers, vacuum homogenizers, sieves, and mills. Heated and unheated transfer tanks for filler and gelatin can be used while waiting for encapsulation.
3-Encapsulation: It is the process of converting the gel mass into a thin gelatin layer and wrapping it around the filler to form a soft gel. Click here to see how the capsule filling machine works. (here is a short video link showing the operation of the machine.)
4-Drying: Soft gel capsule to harden and harden the gelatin shell to remove excess moisture. Drying can be done with a drum drying system, or by using a tray drying combination with the drum.
5- Cleaning, Optical Inspection, and Grouping: Usually required before packaging of the soft gel capsule according to the intended use.
