Rapid Channel Counters

Rapid Channel Counters

You may not see a headline like this in your local newspaper any time soon, but that won’t stop us from promoting our line of newly designed Rapid™ Channel Counters. What is so special about these new Rapid™ Channel Counters?

The Problem:
The problem has never been getting the capsules/tablets to fall off the end of the channels fast enough…gravity works the same for all machines regardless of manufacturer.  The real problem has been; getting the empty bottles organized under the funnel(s), filled and on down the conveyor without  causing a perpetual “bottle-neck”.  It is the bottles, not the capsules/tablets that have been the problem all along.

The Solution:
The Rapid™ Channel Counter solves this bottle-neck problem by turning the entire counter 90° Degrees so it runs parallel to the conveyor.  The bottles enter under the product channels (previously “dead space”) in multiple lanes (up to 8). Each lane has a separate filling drop so bottles are filled simultaneously.  Once filled the bottles filter back onto the single lane conveyor for additional single file processing.

This improvement in bottle flow is a simple solution with a dramatic result.  Here are the bottle speeds you can expect with our various models:

To avoid being labeled a “Mediocre Packager” we suggest you consider adding a Rapid™ Channel Counter to your line. Give us a call and we will help you select the right model for your needs.
