Vibro Sifter

The Russell Compact Sieve range – A vibrating sifter to keep your liquids and dry powders contamination free

Vibro sifters, also known as safety screeners, vibrating shifters, vibro sieves, check screeners or control sieves, are used to ensure the correct product quality of powders or liquids is achieved by removing oversize contamination. The Russell Compact Sieve® range of sifters are incredibly versatile and can be used for size based separation of almost any material. These vibrating sifters fit neatly into production lines, providing considerable screening capacity without requiring excessive headroom. Its innovative design means these machines are less than half the height of a traditional circular vibro sifter machine.

Operating and cleaning is quick and easy, making this range of sifting machines perfect for all processing industries. A wide range of sizes and options means the machine can be tailored to suit your exact needs.

"We required a sieving system that would enable us to check-screen the milk powder to meet the standard set not only by Nestlé but also by Chile and the countries the milk powder is being exported to. With the industry moving towards 2mm screening, it was important to choose a sieve that would meet this criteria without slowing down the production process."
