CAPPING ORALS A GUIDE WITH PICTURES!
A guide to capping orals with pictures.
This guide to capping oral supplements is brought to you by Black Lion Research
Ok men this is the Black Lion guide to capping orals. Today we will be making 100mg of whatever oral ingredient you prefer.
Active ingredient 40g
filler ingredient 180g
Capping machine *
Mortar and pestle
400 gelatin caps-empty size -00-
* you will more than likely be using a 25 or 50 cap machine. Simply adjust accordingly.
Each -00- cap will hold roughly 550mg of a dense powder. In this case we needed 220grams for 400 caps. You can estimate the total volume needed by hand filling one capsule, pouring out the contents and weighing it. From there multiply that number x the number of caps in your machine.

Step one. fill machine with caps. In my machine we attach the cap fill tray.
Then fill the tray with caps. Shake the tray and the capsules fall into the slots.

Repeat with the tops.
Attach the position tray and set aside.

WEIGHING AND MIXING
Geometric dilution. In order to be certain our active ingredient is evenly distributed throughout the mixture and to ensure consistent dosing in every capsule, geometric dilution must be employed. Watch this short video explaining and demonstrating geometric dilution.
Weigh out 40g active ingredient. The cap press can hold 400 caps x 100mg = 40000 or 40g
I ALWAYS weigh everything just a tad over.
Also weigh out an equal amount of filler. Hopefully you watched the video and understand why.
As seen in the video youll use a mortar and pestle to mix equal amounts of active and filler.
Here is the final mix after geometric dilution.

FILLING THE CAPS
Attach the rim guide.
Pour the mixed powder onto the tray. This is the same technique for every cap machine 15 cap and 600 cap.
Spread the powder out over the tray and fill the caps evenly.
Use the Tamp to pack the caps.

PRESSING THE CAPS
Once the caps are evenly filled.
Align the top and bottom trays and press firmly to compress the tops onto the bottoms.
You will be left with this.
And we are finished. Dump them into a bin for counting and dispensing.
And we are done.

I own a supplement company. This press is used for products in R&D phases as it doesnt make sense to manufacture large quantities of a product until it has been thoroughly tested so we make small batches for testing purposes.
Capmquick makes small ones. These you need to put the caps into the slots by hand and attach the tops by hand.
It can take 15-20 min to make 50 caps. /1 batch
Capsulcn makes 100-600 cap presses. This^^^ is the 400 cap version. These have a method for quickly filling the cap slots and also presses all the tops on in one push. The one used in the guide photos was about 400$.
The cap m quick can be about 20$ I think. Smaller ones are fine if your just gonna make some stuff for yourself.
