Filter contamination and oversize agglomerate from liquid products with an industrial self-cleaning strainer

Designed for ease of operation and maintenance, Russell Finex’s range of industrial in-line filters has been designed to increase the efficiency of production lines, increasing productivity, while easily fit into existing production lines. The Self-Cleaning Russell Eco Filter®, which uses a unique SpiroKlene™ wiper system, ensures optimum filtration efficiency, and removes oversize down to 15 microns.

Due to its self-cleaning design, this unit works to increase production rates, with no stoppages needed to change strainer elements or slowing of throughput due to blockages. This wiper system also eliminates the need for bags, which reduces ongoing costs and is environmentally friendly. The system is completely enclosed, minimizing product contamination, and safeguarding the health and safety of operators from hazardous fumes or liquids.

Frequently asked questions

How do self-cleaning filters work?

Self-cleaning filters separate oversize particles from liquids. A stainless steel microscreen separates these particles from the liquid  while a rotating wiper system continuously cleans the inside of the screen, keeping it free from blockage.

What are the applications of a self-cleaning filter?

Self-cleaning filters are used in a wide range of applications including food and beverage, coatings, chemicals and water treatment. Different mesh sizing and options make self-cleaning filters very versatile to suit the varied filtering requirements across these different industries.
