Rebirth of expired pills / Recycling equipment

Rebirth of expired pills
Rebirth of expired pills

According to surveys, the ingredients of many expired family pills can provide nutrients to plants. Based on this concept, we designed a device for recycling expired family pills. it uses scanning technology to identify the packaging information on pills, so as to distinguish between usable pills and non-reusable medicines. Pills that can be used to make plant nutrient solutions will be ground into powder, screened, controlled, metered, diluted with water, and finally irrigated through the green plant sprinkler system connected to the community.Unusable pills will be sorted and packaged by the machine and will be processed by professionals.
