Automation or semi-automation can improve the rate of processing for many, and Adelphi’s turnkey production lines save clients the hassle of dealing with multiple suppliers to achieve automation for their businesses. Production aspects available include Rotary infeed/outfeed, Washing, Sterilising, Induction sealing, Labelling and coding, Elevators, Case packers, Conveyor systems, Palletisers, Container unscramblers, Shrink wrappers, Ink jet printers and Visual inspection units.

A re-examination of processes provides the perfect opportunity for companies to address sustainability issues, to integrate the more environmentally conscious attitude which is becoming intrinsic to customers’ purchasing decisions.

Adelphi are proud to have these concerns at the forefront of our ethos: we produce machines with scalability and upgrade options, so that as your company grows, our equipment can be amended accordingly. We are distancing ourselves from the ‘throw it away and start again’ mentality which doesn’t fit with our environmental responsibilities. All our products are created with longevity in mind, and even our premises demonstrate how heavily we subscribe to this school of thought; Adelphi recently settled into a new environmentally aware production facility, ‘The Friary’.

The impressive premises took several months to complete, and were constructed over the top of Adelphi’s old temporary warehouse space, which enabled business activities to continue without disrupting production and dispatch. The Friary now includes a large machine hall with twelve working stations, all with their own service point for electrics, air and data. This offers space for more machine builds at any one time, ensuring that customer orders can be satisfied regardless of workloads. The facility also includes a Machine Shop, which gives the ability to bring more and more processes and production in-house, from design through to fabrication, including machining, wiring and programming.

In line with our company pledge “to support the local economy and the natural environment”, the Friary took into account energy efficiency at every stage of the build, and as a result eco-friendly LED lighting was installed, thermal testing was conducted, high quality insulation introduced, and solar panels were mounted on the roof of Adelphi Healthcare Packaging’s warehouse facility which now produce more power than we use. Adelphi’s buildings have also been constructed to harvest rainwater for use in the company’s cleaning and plumbing.

Whilst work was underway on The Friary, an exciting discovery was made in the form of an old artesian well, which along with the harvested rainwater now serves all the buildings on site with water for cleaning.

Adelphi are also celebrating opening a new showroom, created to host clients, and to showcase services and facilities at their best.

A labour of love, the showroom was designed in-house by the same creative team behind many of the Adelphi products. Previously an area left vacant following the production department’s historic move to The Friary, the area has been transformed into a state of the art showroom in which to host customers from all over the world, adding another facility to the Adelphi repertoire.

Adelphi are keenly focused on customer care; the quality of the experience reflects the quality of our products, and investing in a new showroom is another way in which we can help customers make the best choice. In the current economic climate, such an investment sends a very positive message to staff and clients alike.

This increase in facilities reflects the increase in demand which Adelphi are enjoying, especially for the System F range of filling machines. This range of inline liquid fillers are unique in the market place, and offer an exciting combination of benefits to the owner and end user. The System F-1800 has been developed to deliver most of the benefits of a bespoke filling machine, without time consuming bespoke engineering work, and at ‘off-the-shelf’ prices.

At the heart of the System F-1800 is a modular design that is capable of being configured to individual requirements without the need for bespoke development work.  Modules such as the Frame, Pumping System, Control System, Product Feed, Drive Systems, Conveyor and Guarding can be specified in almost any combination, and a range of options can be selected to further tailor a machine to particular production environments.

The primary benefits of the modular System F-1800 are increased production output, lower operating costs, greater standards of hygiene and the ability to quickly and cost effectively increase the capacity of your filling line as demand dictates.  In addition, delivery lead time should be drastically reduced from the industry standard of 12-18 weeks.

Adelphi are excited to be launching the new System F-600 at the PPMA Show in September this year, which will be available as volumetric, flowmeter and weigh scale versions.

Also experiencing a high level of demand is the Response filler. The Response was developed in response to our customers’ requests, hence the name!  Designed to meet pharmaceutical standards, the unit is versatile, hygienic and easy to use.  Versatility is one of the Response’s key features; a single head is suitable for filling liquids, pastes and solids in suspension in to all types of container, with a wide range of optional accessories available to suit more specialised requirements.  Thanks to three standard sizes of honed pump sets, fill volumes can range from 10ml to 1 litre in a single shot, with accuracy of ± 0.25%.

Adelphi Coldstream’s sought after range of high quality stainless steel process equipment includes mixing vessels, buckets, scoops, beakers, jugs and more. They are becoming more and more widely used in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries, as well as increasing by the e-liquids and cosmetics markets. All are batch traceable, and are pit and crevice free to avoid bug traps, providing peace of mind for our clients.

At Adelphi we are exceptionally proud of our products and premises, and are always pleased to welcome customers and contacts to site for tours. If you would like to see how Adelphi can help your business, please visit, call us on +44 (0) 1444 472300, or email
