What is the main structure of the H2 coffee capsule filling sealing machine.

The structure of the H2 coffee capsule filling sealing machine includes the empty capsules sorter and feeder device, empty capsules conveyor and filling and sealing zone.

1.1 The empty capsules sorter and feeder device and the empty capsules conveyor

With a vibrating plate, the empty capsules sorter and feeder device is used to sort out all disorganized empty cups so they could be put in order one by one on the conveyor. For H2 coffee capsule filling sealing machine, there would be 2 lanes of conveyor. The conveyor will deliver all the sorted empty cups to the filling and sealing zone.

1.2 The filling and sealing zone of H2 coffee capsules filling and sealing machine

The filling sealing zone consists of aluminum capsules feeding device, the coffee powder filling system, the nitrogen flushing system, the anti static system, the coffee powder tamping and capsule edge cleaning system, the roll film cutting and sealing station, the second sealing station and conveyor.

The aluminum capsule feeding device

The capsules are stocked here and delivered to the conveyor. Basically, the function of this device is similar to empty capsules sorter and feeder device, which is delivering the coffee capsules to the capsules conveyor. But the difference is based on the types of coffee capsules, the empty capsules sorter and feeder device are used to sort out those coffee capsules that are not easy to stack by taking advantage of the vibrating device.

The coffee powder filling system

This coffee powder filling system has a conical coffee powder silo which could contain the powder of coffee, cocoa, tea leaves or other type of granules. The coffee powder will be filled into the coffee capsuled in the position of the conveyor.

The nitrogen flushing system

The nitrogen flushing system is used to keep nitrogen flushed during the process of filling and sealing so to ensure the freshness of the coffee powder and extend the shelf life of filled and sealed coffee capsules.

The anti-static system

The static electricity might be generated during the process of filling and sealing, which is harmful to coffee capsule quality and their output, and also the machine itself. Static electricity can cause powder deposition during production to block pipelines. The anti static system will lead to form a conductive layer on the surface of the parts of the machine, thereby reducing its surface resistivity and allowing the static charge that has been generated to leak quickly.

The coffee powder tamping and capsule edge cleaning system

This system is to tamp the coffee powder in the coffee capsules, so to extract the air inside. Also there is edge cleaning function to make sure a complete sealing.

The roll film cutting and sealing station

The roll film cutting system would cut the film into the shape of the lid which match the size of the mouth of the coffee capsules. And the system would deliver it to the sealing station for sealing the film to the coffee capsules.

The second sealing station and conveyor

The second sealing station is to make sure the sealing is tight enough and complete. The conveyor would output the well filled and sealed coffee capsules.
