SorbStar™ (Desiccant Inserter)
SorbStar is the new sachet and canister desiccant inserter designed by Capmatic. The frame of the SorbStar is made of anodized aluminum 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 infeed feedscrew mechanically synchronized with the dispenser. Bottle changeovers can be completed very quickly and without the use of any tools.
