Pharmaceutical companies can choose a packaging with corresponding capacity according to the thickness of the tablet.

Secondly, it is sealed and moisture-proof. This factor is mainly controlled by the pharmaceutical packaging material and desiccant. The material is generally made of polypropylene with better waterproof performance, which can meet the requirements of moisture-proof. In order to ensure the dryness of the environment in the bottle, pharmaceutical companies generally require a desiccant to be placed in the effervescent tube. The desiccant can absorb moisture in the air to ensure the dryness of the tablet.
