Gelatin Ribbon Thickness Gauge
Gauge to Inspect Gelatin Ribbon Thickness
Using this thickness gauge quickly to touch the gelatin ribbon to get the thickness data. Controlling the right thickness of the gelatin ribbon is very important in the encapsulation process. It influences the shape of the outcoming softgel.
A layer of too thin gelatin ribbon may result in softgel leakage because of not enough tension to hold inside filling medicine.
While a layer of too thick gelatin ribbon may also result in softgel leakage due to the reason that the thicker, the harder to cut off gelatin. In this, we can also see that softgel leakage happens due to different adjustments.
In China softgel encapsulation machine, the suggested gelatin ribbon is 0.72-0.82mm.
