Pharmaceutical & Nutraceutical

Tray Loaders | Vial Dryers | Accumulation Tables | Conveyors | Distribution Systems

When it comes to efficient processing, pharmaceutical manufacturers face three major issues: fragile products, pressure to reduce processing time, and strict regulations. Whether your product is packaged in glass vials, pill containers, or medicine bottles, our solutions can streamline your products through your production line with minimal yield loss. Our first-in-first-out product flow ensures product integrity and reduces product time on the line. These processes can automatically load vials into trays at over 1,000 vials per minute and in some cases reduce vial drying time from 48 hours to 5 minutes.

Accumulation, vial drying, and distribution equipment for pharmaceutical and nutraceutical applications

Increase your throughput by up to 30%, decrease vial drying time, and facilitate product inspection with our solutions designed for industrial applications. Our patented technology can accumulate, single-file, and distribute even the most unstable products at speeds unmatched in the industry.

Use our line efficiency calculator to determine how much more throughput you could be getting:

Vial handling systems

Automatic Tray Loader

This revolutionary design of this pharmaceutical conveyor can load up to 800 3ml vpm into cardboard or plastic trays with extremely low vial to vial impact.

Garvey Automatic Vial Dryer

This revolutionary vial drying system dries products of all sizes in mere minutes far surpassing the industry standard. This full system also utilizes our patented Infinity Accumulation System to outfeed vials at unprecedented speeds in the industry.

Accumulation systems

Infinity™ RX Accumulation Table

Never before has it been so easy to protect the throughput of your production lines. Garvey’s Infinity™ Series provides high-speed, low back-pressure accumulation at previously impossible rates.

Infinity™ RX Rotary Replacement Models

This tabletop accumulator was developed to be a simple and effective replacement for rotary table or turntable accumulators. The patented Infinity™ RX 36”, 48” and 60″ can out-feed products faster than a traditional rotary table and with less pressure.


Rx Conveyor

The Rx design implements a proactive approach to increase cleanliness, minimizing dirt pockets and maximizing rounded surfaces for better drainage. The Garvey conveyor system includes a complete range of guide rails and supports.

6000 Series Raised Chain Conveyor

Garvey Corporation’s 6000 series “Raised Wearstrip” accumulation conveyors are designed to carry nearly any product and work well in nearly any application in the pharmaceutical, food, or cosmetic industry.

Clean Room Transfer

The Garvey Clean Room Transfer is clean pass through conveyor designed to minimize the size of the exit portal of a clean room while providing a flush chain to chain transfer, eliminating the need for a dead plate.

Distribution systems

Do you need to transfer filled bottles from a mass flow to parallel inspection or labeling stations? In a traditional metering system, bottles have to stop at every machine. With our on-demand distribution systems, products circle continuously until they encounter an empty machine, guaranteeing that no machine capable of working is ever sitting idle. Learn More
