Last week Pakistani customers came to Ginhong factory and stayed for a two-day inspection on their toothpaste making machine.
This customer is introduced by one of our partners. Their company has manufactured dental healthcare products for decades and been certified by international institutions like SGS. Besides their own brand, they have also obtained exclusive distribution and dealership right from world class brands. And it is growing steadily and has high market share in oral hygiene products of Pakistan. Before placing the order, they made a visit to our factory in summer last year.
Toothpastes are generally either white abrasive pastes or clear gels for promoting oral hygiene. The common types of toothpaste in the market are fluoride toothpaste, desensitizing toothpaste, anti-calculus toothpaste, anti-plaque toothpaste, and whitening toothpaste. Although the formulations differ, they share many common ingredients. In addition to 20–42% water, toothpastes are derived from a variety of components, the three main ones being abrasives, fluoride, and detergents.
The toothpaste production line primarily consists of 1200L vacuum triple shaft mixer, 300L premixing tank, 600L powder tank, 300L CIP tank and three sets of 1200L storage tanks. It’s a complete system of mixing, dispersing, homogenizing, cooling and discharging. The vessel is cooled by chilled water and operating system adopts Siemens PLC. Workers can touch the human machine interface with ease on the tailored stainless steel working platform.
SZ vacuum triple shaft mixer is a multi shaft mixer for the production of viscous pastes and suspensions in the cosmetic, pharmaceutical, food and chemical industries. It’s especially suitable for making toothpaste. Aeration is a major problem in toothpaste manufacturing. All powders contain a certain amount of air, and the detergent can exacerbate the problem.The vacuum pump is put into use for preventing the formation of bubbles and unwanted air.
SZ-1200L is the main mixing vessel, and its mixing parts are frame agitator and two dispersers. The two high speed dispersers help break the solid in small particles into the liquid. The cover of the main tank is lifted by hydraulic lifting system, and can be lifted to the frame agitator totally above the tank. Hydraulic lifting system has more advantages of easy cleaning and observation. Interlock safety devices are equipped to make sure that the mixing part won’t start when the cover is lifted.
All containers and product contact parts adopt SS316L to ensure the stability of the ingredients. We keep good relationship with our raw material manufacturers. We have stable purchase quantity for them and they guarantee to supply stable quality material to us.
The first day, they inspected machines one by one according to the drawings and learned to run the toothpaste making machinery by the touch screen. In general, they were satisfied with the products we manufactured. The second day, they looked into some documents, such as DQ(Design Qualification), OQ(Operational Qualification), IQ(Installation Qualification), PQ(Performance Qualification), and Certificate of Material Analysis. And they listed some replaceable parts for the machines to ensure their maximum funtionality.
Ginhong has rich experience in producing different types of toothpaste making machine. Our team can custom design and build machines to meet your exact specifications. If you have any mixing requirement, please feel free to discuss with us.
