Model TE-20 Tablet Elevator

The Model TE-20 Tablet Elevator improves worker ergonomics by allowing an operator to fill the tablet hopper at a comfortable height. The elevator then lifts a bucket to feed a tablet counter or blister machine.

A stepper-driven rotary gate feeder transfers product from the hopper to a small bucket via a chute with sieve holes and a vacuum system that collects dust and chips, which is especially important for uncoated tablets. Benefits include a 4 cu. ft. stainless steel hopper capacity with the option of an extension to double capacity up to 8 cu. ft.

Elevating the bucket at speeds of two cycles per minute, handling 20,000 tablets per minute, within a compact footprint that is only 48 inches (122 cm) long and 27 inches (69 cm) wide. The standard hopper offers approximately 9 minutes of autonomy, depending on the tablet size, when running at its maximum speed.
