Bag lifting and emptying system handles pharmaceutical company's bicalcium phosphates
When manually handling 50-kilogram bags of toothpaste ingredients creates dust and requires labor, a pharmaceutical company installs a bag lifting and emptying system.
Stafford-Miller's Plymouth, UK, plant manufactures many pharmaceutical products and Sensodyne toothpaste. The plant receives plastic pallets of ingredients such as bicalcium phosphates in packages ranging from bags to metal containers. A forklift truck moves the pallets to storage and later to production. During Sensodyne production, a mixer combines bicalcium phosphates and other toothpaste ingredients.
