Removing oversize from milk powder

The Finex 22™ combined with a Russell RotoBlock™ ensures removal of oversize and contamination from milk powder

In food and beverage industry, milk powder is a very popular application as it is used in many products. Therefore, its manufacturing process is very critical and requires an accurate and reliable screening solution designed in accordance with many food safety standards like FDA and 3-A standards.

During processing of some products such as infant formula, it is very important to remove oversize and contamination from milk powder to preserve the integrity of the formula and maintain the product at the highest quality.

This demonstration video shows how the infant formula milk powder is screened by a Finex 22™ with a Russell RotoBlock™. The RotoBlock™ is a simple device used to help break down agglomerated powders, to ensure maximum product yield. As the powder is fed onto the mesh using the gyratory action of the sieve, the RotoBlock™ rotates on the mesh removing fine particles of the agglomerated milk powder, allowing for all the formula to be separated from the unwanted hard agglomerates.

The Finex 22™ is a high capacity screening machine, suitable for safety screening batches of powders in one continuous operation, as well as the accurate grading of granules and powders. The unit is able to maximize throughput and accuracy of separation, and also minimize downtime as it enables fast screen changes and tool free assembly and disassembly.

To further improve this separation of agglomerated milk powder and to achieve a high-quality product, the unit is fitted with an Easy-Clean Magnetic Separator™. This easy-to-clean magnetic separator is perfectly designed to remove ferrous contamination from the infant formula and is constructed from stainless steel giving it a hygienic, crevice free design to further minimize contamination risk.

With over 85 years of experience in producing a range of sieving and filtration solutions for the food and beverage industry, Russell Finex can provide a suitable solution for products such as milk powder, flour, honey, and chocolate.
