Customized sieving machinery – food industry

Customized screening machinery to meet customer requirements

In order to ensure the latest techniques in food safety were incorporated within their production process a leading glucose producer reviewed their existing process. A system that would fit in with their food safety standards was required so they approached a professional engineering company to custom design a new system which would meet their unique requirements. The engineering company had worked with Russell Finex in the past so asked them to supply a sieving machine to fit in with the new system.

Customized vibro screen for glucose producer

Having dealt with this product in the past Russell Finex recommended a 900 diameter Russell Compact Sieve® as the most appropriate machine for this application. However, to guarantee the smooth integration of the industrial vibro sifter into the company’s existing production plant a number of modifications were made. Firstly, in order to maximize the coverage across the screen mesh to give optimum performance and efficiency of screening, the inlet and outlet of the vibro screen were offset. Secondly, to enable easier inspection of the material as it is being sieved two 6” view ports fitted with tri-clamp connections were also added to the deck. The company also wanted a wet-in-place system to ensure that when the machine is dis-assembled for clean down the powder does not enter the working environment. Therefore, spray balls were fitted to two additional view ports on the deck and another on the oversize outlet. The machine was supplied in high quality 316L stainless steel and all product contact surfaces were mirror polished to a documented 0.4Ra value.

Undertaken at the Russell Finex factory the customer came to visually inspect the vibro screen to ensure it met their exacting standards. Having passed the FAT, a comprehensive Documentation Pack was then issued. Designed to ensure faster validation during commissioning this optional extra includes the full FAT report, mill certification, certificates of conformity and FDA declaration letters.
