SorbStar™ (Desiccant Inserter)

SorbStar™ is the new sachet and canister desiccant inserter designed by Capmatic®. The frame of the SorbStar™ is made of anodized aluminums with a stainless steel exterior. The electrical and mechanical parts are located inside the frame of the machine for full protection. Bottles are indexed by a servo-driven in-feed worm mechanically synchronized with the dispenser, and bottle change-over can be completed very quickly without the use of any tools.
