Industrial sieving solution for iron powders

Russell Finex’s high-performance sieving solution for iron powders helps IMP to optimize its screening capacity and product quality

Industrial Metal Powders (India) Pvt. Ltd, commonly known as IMP, is a leading manufacturer of iron powder, selling to 33 countries around the world. The company supplies manufacturers within the metallurgy, engineering, pharmaceutical, and food industries – with a wide range of products that are highly recognizable worldwide. These include electrolytic iron powders, reduced iron powder, pre-alloyed powders, and electrolytic iron flakes.

IMP sought a check-screening machine to ensure the quality of electrolytic iron powders during production, as these powders are the purest form of iron powder used for a variety of industrial applications such as food and nutraceutical processing. As a trusted, leading supplier of premium manufacturing equipment, Russell Finex had been recommended to IMP and was subsequently consulted to provide a solution to check-screening electrolytic iron powders.

IMP approached Russell Finex due to the company’s experience in delivering premium sieving solutions to many renowned metallurgy manufacturers.
