Russell Finex Grading Machines, Check Screeners, In-Line Filters and Ultrasonic Sieve Deblinding Systems
Russell Finex provides fine mesh separation technology, with 80 years’ experience of designing and manufacturing sieves, separators, self-cleaning in-line filters, and ultrasonic systems.
For many years Russell Finex has been an integral part of the food industry, not just as a supplier, but also as an innovator and advisor. The company has years of experience with a wide range of food ingredients, from apple juice to nuts, coconut to spices, flour to sauces, rice to bran, and hundreds of others, each with their own particular problems.
Specialised food sieving equipment
Russell Finex has extensive experience in dealing with the problems related to hazard analysis critical control point (HACCP) and hazard analysis operational studies (HAZOP). The company also understands the needs of the European Comission (EC) Official Controls of Foodstuffs directive, the UK Food Safety Act, and good manufacturing practices (GMP), as well as US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and US Department of Agriculture (USDA) requirements, which all create a need for specialised food sieving equipment and expertise.
Low-level bag tipping station
The Compact 3in1 Sieve™ is specifically designed to check screen hand-fed ingredients through low-level bag emptying, where operator protection is essential. Due to its straight-through design and optimum clearance between the sieve outlet and your floor, the 3in1 Sieve™ can fit neatly into your production process.
Self-cleaning in-line filters
Russell Finex’s self-cleaning in-line filters are ideal for removing oversize contamination from liquids and provide consistently high flow rates with no operator control necessary. As they do not require filter bags or cartridges and significantly reduce wasted products, the company’s in-line filters are both cost-effective and environmentally friendly. The filter range includes vertical, horizontal, in-line, on-line, and high-temperature / jacketed filters, as well as the Filter Management System™.
Ultrasonic sieve deblinding systems
Ultrasonic sieve deblinding systems are used to eliminate mesh blinding and blockage, which is a common problem when sieving dry powders. The Vibrasonic® Deblinding System uses ultrasonic frequency, enabling finer meshes to be used and increasing screening capacity. It has revolutionised the screening of difficult powders on sieve meshes, allowing accurate separation down to 20µm. The ultrasonic system has been designed to be retrofitted on to any sieve / separator.
Grading machines for powders and granules
Grading / sizing of powders and granules achieves separation on different ranges of particle sizes. Grading machines separate up to five product fractions, increasing sieving accuracy and efficiency, and include the Finex Separator™, Russell Eco Separator®, and the Finex range.
Also known as safety screeners or control sieves, check screeners ensure that the correct product quality of powders or liquids is achieved by removing oversize contamination. Products in Russell Finex’s check screener range include the Russell Compact Sieve®, the Blow Thru Sieve™, and the Mini Sifter™.
