Aphena Adds Fourth Bottle Line to New Jersey Facility

Addition brings total number of lines to 10

TREVOSE, Pa., Dec. 2, 2014 — Aphena Pharma Solutions recently installed a new bottling line in our Whippany, New Jersey, facility to add to our offerings for contract packaging. Aphena now has four bottle lines in our New Jersey site to complement the six bottle lines we have in our Cookeville, Tennessee, location.

The new line features a Cremer electronic channel counter, vision inspection for accurate counts, and a detail clean validation program to keep setup cost low for our customers. The line can run 120 bottles per minute and allows for fast changeovers while providing maximum flexibility for filling bottles with tablets, capsules and softgels.

The remainder of the packaging line includes:

  • A bottle orientor/cleaner
  • A desiccant filler
  • Metal detection
  • A cotton/rayon filler
  • A capper
  • Induction sealing and retorqing
  • A labeler with vision and bar code inspection
  • Outsert placement and inspection
  • Cartoning of bottles
  • Bundling of cartons or bottles

Aphena also has plans for serialization on this packaging line to meet FDA regulations required in the future for pharmaceutical products. The line is fully validated and ready now for new projects.
