Process of operation

The vials are fed into the infeed tray and moved on the woven conveyor belt. Then the vials are aligned in the correct position by the conveyor belt. The vials enter into a carrier pocket with the help of oscillating guide rails. An oscillating arm transfer the vials in to the pocket over the spray nozzles in the inverted position. The vials are washed from the inner as well as outer side. Every washing station has its independent circuit to avoid the contamination. The needles are automatically lifted on the completion of motion of baskets. Needles enter the vials and sprays jets of water and then returns out of the vials. The baskets then move forward by one position and the cycle is completed.
