Capsule polishing is a crucial step in the manufacturing process of capsules, as it ensures that the capsules are smooth and visually appealing. However, several issues can occur during this process, especially when dealing with problematic ingredients such as hygroscopic and coloured ones.

Hygroscopic ingredients are known to absorb moisture from the surrounding air, which can cause the capsules to become sticky and clump together during the polishing process. This can lead to inconsistent polishing, resulting in an uneven surface on the capsules. Additionally, coloured ingredients can stain the polishing equipment, leading to cross-contamination and affecting the quality of future batches.

To mitigate these issues, LifeLab take several measures such as adjusting the humidity levels in the polishing area, using specialised polishing equipment, and thoroughly cleaning the equipment after each use. By taking these steps, LifeLab can ensure that the capsules are polished efficiently and maintain their visual appeal.

At LifeLab, we are committed to providing top-quality capsule polishing services that meet or exceed industry standards. To achieve this, we have implemented advanced technologies, such as our auto capsule defect systems, which automatically detect and remove any defective capsules from the production line.

However, our quality control measures don’t stop there. Our experienced technicians conduct further checks to ensure that every capsule is consistent in size, shape, and colour, and free of any remaining defects.

We understand the importance of high-quality capsules in the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries, which is why we continuously review and improve our processes to maintain our commitment to excellence. By choosing LifeLab for your capsule polishing needs, you can be confident in the quality of the end product. Contact us today to learn more about our services.
