Understanding the coatings industry

Every type of coating, however it is manufactured, needs to be filtered or screened at some stage to guarantee its quality, in terms of producing the intended final finish. We have dealt with a great deal of different coating products from solvent borne liquid paint to powder coatings, from hot resins to bismuth coating, from ferrous coatings to emulsions, each with their own characteristics.


We have worked closely with hundreds of coating companies over the years, and have built up an impressive reference list of major coating customers.

Some key applications

Liquid Paint
Liquid Paint

Whether you produce paints that are for industrial, domestic or marine use, are water borne, are designed for brushing, spraying or rolling, or use convertible or non-convertible synthetic resin binders like alkyds, vinyl’s and polyurethanes, we have a solution for you.

Powder Coatings

Sieves are an essential part of the process to ensure the consistency of your final products is upheld. However, the biggest single sieving problem created in powder production is mesh blinding. The Russell Vibrasonic® Deblinding system overcomes this problem by using ultrasonic frequency to ensure the sieve mesh remains clean at all times.

"Any risk of product contamination has been eliminated completely with the Russell compact screeners. Compared to the rotary units we replaced, they are very simple to dismantle and clean. In addition, we no longer have pieces of nylon mesh finding their way into the product which was a frequent problem we experienced with the rotary screening machines."
