Modu-C MS Containment

Safe: The containment system for protecting operating personnel during production.


The Modu-C MS Containment is especially designed for safe and flexible capsule production for which increased operator protection is necessary, such as for OEB class 4 (1-10 μg/m³). Even in the containment variant, the patented trolley system allows a rapid change of dosing systems. The machine is impressive with its easy operation and minimal setup and downtimes during format changes and cleaning.

  • Flexibly expandable with the patented dosing trolley system
  • PRP function (person reduced production) Calibration bar to detect deformed capsules, exhaust function of deformed capsules, differential pressure measurement to inspect the presence of capsule bottoms, capsule closure inspection and single elimination of bad capsules
  • 100% control units to ensure operator protection and adherence to the necessary filling requirements (temperature, humidity, negative pressure, etc.)
  • Minimum product loss with no-cap-no-fill function
  • Supported by Pharma Services
  • User-friendly pre- and post cleaning and minimal setup times
Capsule filling machines Modu-C MS with MABS Containment

Modu-C MS Containment – capsule filling machine with MABS Containment. The Modular Advanced Barrier System is a modular stainless steel insulator for processes with the highest requirements of product and/or user / environmental protection.

Capsule filling machines Modu-C MS – ergonomics despite containment

Thanks to MABS Containment, products with an OEL < 1 μg/m³ can be reliably processed in the Modu-C MS Containment. Despite the effective protection, optimum accessibility is guaranteed with large operator intervention openings.

Barrier technology with the capability to suction off excess active ingredient

Station vacs in containment equipment are designed to minimize product distribution in the production area.

Machine features

Barrier technology protects the product from contamination and the user from coming into contact with active ingredients.

Barrier technology

Compact machine design and detailed knowledge of all processes makes Harro Höfliger a specialist in containment and barrier systems that serve to protect both the operator and the product. For ideal accessibility, ergonomic studies are performed that simulate all processes and operating steps.

Exchanging the dosing method by changing out the trolley: Short setup times and fast cleaning for efficiently producing pharmaceuticals.

Trolley concept

The patented dosing trolley system allows the operator to quickly change the dosing method: Whether powder, pellets, tablets, micro-tablets or liquid – the next dosing process is already set up. Short setup times, fast cleaning, maximum productivity. Plug-and-play options for the process change.

Filling pharmaceutical solid ingredients in capsules requires precise dosing methods. A combination of up to three products is possible per capsule.

Combination filling

Various dosing systems allow combination fillings with up to three products such as powders, pellets, tablets, micro-tablets, powder blends, active ingredients or liquids. It is even possible to fill capsules into capsules.

The customer’s peripherals can be connected to the Harro Höfliger machines using standard network interfaces.

Peripheral network

Standard interfaces (MES, ActiveDirectory, OPC, …) allow the customer-specific peripherals to communicated with the IT network of the Harro Höfliger systems.


Compact containment concept provides reliable protection for operators as well as the environment.

Operator protection: Proven in practice

Harro Höfliger designed a containment concept for their capsule filling machines of the Modu-C family. The compact design provides reliable protection for operators as well as the environment.
