Sieving machine for screening dry mango powders
Gandhi Spices increases production of dry mango powder by 40% with Russell separation machinery
For over 60 years, Gandhi Spices has been manufacturing, exporting and wholesaling spices in India, and is known for producing blends such as Meat Masala, Chole Masala, Kitchen King Masala, Kasuri Methi and Garam Masala. When faced with continuously increasing demand, Gandhi Spices sought to review the production process of one of their key ingredients to ensure increased output could be achieved without compromising product quality.
At their factory located in Rajkot, Gujarat, a rotary sifter was being used to screen dry mango powder, however the machine was unable to meet the required throughput rates. The company therefore turned to Russell Finex who supplied a separation solution capable of meeting the high throughput rates required, whilst ensuring consistent product quality.
Following the drying and grinding process, the fine raw mango powder must be sieved to remove any unwanted impurities and oversize material before packaging. Previously, a rotary sifter was used at this stage. However, this traditional sieving machine is known to suffer from mesh blockage when sieving dense products such as dry mango powder.
With over 85 years’ experience supplying high quality screening solutions to the food industry, Russell Finex assessed Gandhi Spices requirements and provided a high-performance vibrating separator. Following successful trials, Gandhi Spices purchased the Finex Ultima™ fitted with a Russell Vibrasonic® Deblinding System.
The Finex Ultima™ is designed with the food industry in mind, with a hygienic open frame design and high-quality stainless-steel contact parts with crevice free welds allowing for easy cleaning.
The addition of an innovative anti-blinding device, the Russell Vibrasonic® Deblinding System ensures that the previous issues experienced with mesh blockages are eliminated. An ultrasonic frequency is applied to the mesh to break the surface tension and keep the mesh apertures clear of agglomerated powder, therefore reducing downtime to clean the mesh.
