SADE SP-160 Weight Sorter

A compact, weight sorter / checkweigher for 100% weight checking and statistical analysis of small to medium batches, ideal for both clinical trials and small production runs.

It is a floor-standing unit with one weighing channel automatically fed by a large 60 litre bulk hopper. Once set up the SADE SP-160 can be left unattended for long periods freeing technicians for other tasks. Dismantling for cleaning is rapid and it’s easy to set up for the next product (frequently cited in MHRA GMP inspection observations (3.36)).

Over-encapsulation is the most widely used method of blinding supplies in clinical studies. The SADE SP units provide an effective means of checking single or multiple mini tablet filling.
