Deboxing and Deblistering Waste Pharmaceutical Products
Two Dominator depackaging machines were recently installed at a factory which specialises in the recovery of materials from waste pharmaceutical products.
The first machine was setup to debox aluminium blister packs from their cardboard boxes, these blister packs were then separated using an eddy current separator before falling into a second machine. This second machine then removed the tablets from the blister packs so the aluminium could be sent for recycling. Due to the versatility of the Dominator the same model was used in both stages, but different paddle settings and shaft speeds were used to optimise performance. Instead of sending these blister packs to landfill the customer is now able to recover the aluminium and has another revenue stream.
