Gelatin Capsule Drying

Gelatin capsules are typically small empty capsules manufactured to contain various medications and vitamin supplements. When dried at the correct temperature, gelatin capsules are soft and smooth, and resist reaction to other substances.

The manufacture of gelatin capsules requires precise temperatures and relative humidity (RH). For example, if the air temperature and humidity used to dry gelatin is too low, it will set rapidly and becomes brittle. If air temperature and humidity is too high, the gelatin will not solidify correctly. Other issues caused by incorrect temperatures and humidity levels include dimpling and shrinkage. All of these issues will affect the manufacturing process, causing costly delays and downtime, therefore moisture and temperature control are critical factors for correct gelatin capsule drying.

The use of a dessicant dehumidifier in the capsulating process will maintain the correct temperature and humidity for gelatin capsule drying, and offers an economical solution to the temperature and humidity problems experienced in gelatin capsule manufacture.

Humiscope has dessicant dehumidifiers available for rent or purchase across Australia, and we have experienced staff who can guide and advise on the best models for your needs. Humiscope has many years of experience providing humidity control solutions to the pharmaceutical sector, and are industry leaders in gelatin capsule drying so get in touch with a friendly staff today and discover how dessicant dehumidifiers can save you time and money.

Meat Processing: dehumidifiers reduce condensation and bacteria growth

Compulsory monitoring of humidity levels in processing plants and cold stores and an increased concern for public health has seen commercial dehumidifiers become essential tools for reducing condensation and bacteria growth and enhancing hygiene in all areas of meat processing. 

Sandblasting: How Dehumidifiers Prevent Corrosion

Sandblasting: How Dehumidifiers Prevent Corrosion

Anyone who has lived in Australia knows that the humidity can climb despending on the season. That’s okay if you are hanging out on the beach with a long, cold drink in hand, but humidity is not good if you want to avoid substrate surface corrosion during and immediately after abrasive blasting.

Boiler Protection in Dairy Sector

Boiler Protection in  Dairy Sector

Reducing the risk of unexpected downtime is crucial for one of New Zealand’s leading dairy producers. Therefore equipment such as boilers need to be protected from corrosion when not in use. Accordingly, Humiscope have supplied Fisair desiccant dehumidifiers to control humidity levels inside of power generating boilers.

Humiscope Provides a Low Humidity Environment for Transformer Repair

Humiscope Provides a Low Humidity Environment for Transformer Repair

Our client was required to carry out maintenance on specialised transformers. To complete this maintenance work, a temperature specific, very low humidity environment was required to maintain the integrity of the transformers. 
Equipment such as transformers need to be kept in a low humidity environment for any repairs and maintenance. Accordingly, Humiscope have supplied desiccant dehumidifiers to control humidity levels inside of purpose built maintenance buildings.

Power Generation: 6 Problem Areas for Corrosion During a Shutdown

Power Generation: 6 Problem Areas for Corrosion During a Shutdown

We are increasingly seeing extended shut down periods for power stations. During these periods, a common problem is condensation forming on surfaces. FInd out why this occurs and how we can provide a permanent of temporary solution. 

Cold Storage: Reduce Ice Build-up with a Dehumidifier

Cold Storage: Reduce Ice Build-up with a Dehumidifier

Desiccant dehumidifiers are designed to control moisture in the air to reduce humidity and condensation. Dehumidified air in cold storage reduces ice build-up, combats mould and bacterial growth and increases refrigeration efficiency. Regulated frost-free cooling in cold storage environments prevents saturation and stickiness of products and makes the workplace more pleasant for your staff.

Dehumidification in Gas Boilers

With high operating temperatures and water treatment during operation, corrosion is prevented from occurring. During shut down for repairs or on standby, the system starts to cool down and high relative humidity in the air starts to become a problem, creating corrosion. 

The Importance of Humidity Control in Museums and Archives

The Importance of Humidity Control in Museums and Archives

In an recent article posted in the Guardian, the world's oldest mummies are degrading at a rapid rate due to higher than normal humidity levels in the atmosphere. 

Humidity can lead to moisture damage, bacterial growth and corrosion of the object to be preserved. Once, this has occurred the object will probably never return to its former condition.
