Tablets & Capsules September 2014 33 Double-band capsule sealer Hipcapseal S-100 capsule sealer applies two bands around hard capsules filled with liquids, oils, semi-solids, and/or pastes to provide leak-proof, hermetic seal of capsule cap to capsule body. Double-banding ensures that any air bubbles or unevenness in first band are offset by second band. Unit seals as many as 100,000 gelatin or HPMC capsules per hour. Qualicaps, Whitsett, NC.

It focuses on high-value supplements and ingredients that are difficult to encapsulate, fragile to work with, or difficult to absorb. Sytrinol softgels (photo) are made from extracts of citrus peel and red palm oil, which offer bioflavonoids and tocotrienols associated with cell maintenance, healthy cholesterol levels, and overall cardio- vascular health.
