Self Cleaning filtration system for cooking oils
Russell Finex’s self-cleaning filtration solution helps a major food producer in replacing its paper filtration method with cooking oil filtration system to optimize its production capacity
Milhans Gida ve Tarim Urunleri (Milhans) is a leading producer of high-quality dried-nuts, and a major manufacturer of private-label products to some of Turkey’s largest food retailers, as well as supplying its own range of snacks.
At Milhans, peanut processing line is one of the key areas of production. Since peanut is used in its various brand products, it is imperative that the quality and hygiene of the final products are of the highest quality. Also, in order to meet increasing demand for its products, the company had to make sure that the equipment used throughout the plant must meet high-capacity levels without compromising product quality. When seeking a cooking oil filtration system to optimize the recovery of frying oil from the fryer, Milhans consulted Russell Finex, specialists in separation equipment for the food industry.
During the filtration of recovered frying oil, Milhans were experiencing difficulties with its paper filtration system not achieving the required throughput, nor providing consistent filtration quality. Also, there was production downtime caused because of the regular manual changing of the paper filter cartridges.
The Self-Cleaning Russell Eco Filter® installed with a Russell Filter Management System™ was the ideal solution for recovering the used frying oil. This high-performance in-line filter machine for cooking oils was easy to install in the existing production line, capable of filtering high-temperature liquids and providing a significant upgrade on the previous paper cartridge filters.
As well as delivering increased throughput, the new frying oil filter ensures an even finer, consistent quality of cooking oil. In addition, the unique self-cleaning design means there are no stoppages to change filter cartridges and no slowing of throughput to clean blocked filter elements. The filters are totally enclosed, meaning no fumes and limited operator exposure to liquid. A range of high-flow, high-temperature and sanitary liquid filters is available to suit various applications. The addition of the Russell Filter Management System™ allows complete automation of the Self-Cleaning Russell Eco Filter®. The automatic filtration system continuously monitors the filtration process, enabling the filter to run efficiently without operator involvement.
