Pharma Tech Industries, one of the largest pharmaceutical contract manufacturers and packagers of powder products in the world, has introduced a new high-speed bottling line for the production of Rx, OTC, and nutritional ingestible products at its Union, MO facility.

Featuring several units from production equipment manufacturer PneumaticScaleAngelus, the line includes premium unscrambling, filling, checkweighing, metal detection, capping, induction sealing, bundling, and casepacking equipment. It is capable of filling speeds up to 300 bottles per minute, with a bottle size capacity of 5 in. in diameter and 10 in. high.

The new bottling line is housed in a new, specially-built ISO 8 Class 100,000 controlled environment designed for non-sterile Rx pharmaceutical-grade oral products. All equipment is of modular, quick change design to enable minimal downtime between campaigns.

The addition is part of Pharma Tech’s recent expansion at its production facility in Union, MO. The multimillion-dollar investment has added approximately 55,000 sq ft of manufacturing space, bringing the facility’s total area to 155,000 sq ft. Included in the expansion is another high-speed bottling line, as well as a 20,000-sq-ft building that houses an analytical/microbial lab and additional warehousing space.

“Adding this specially tailored, high-speed bottling line is an example of Pharma Tech’s willingness and ability to adapt to evolving customer needs,” said Tee Noland, chairman & CEO of Pharma Tech Industries. “Pharma Tech takes great pride in growing and enhancing its manufacturing and packaging capabilities, as we build upon our widely acknowledged record of high quality and seamless service to all our customers.”
