Selecting the type of equipment for your application is key to achieving high throughputs and an efficient processing solution.
Russell Finex has more than 80 years of experience in processing liquid applications, supplying customized solutions for your specific needs. Russell Finex also has a specialized test and research facility in the US, where you can test your material under controlled conditions that can be adapted to recreate your processing environment as closely as possible. You can also access a wide variety of demonstration videos of Russell machines being used in a wide range of applications.
Read this guide developed by Russell Finex about the main advantages and benefits of either using a vibratory screener or a self-cleaning filter for processing liquids.
Processing liquids – when to ‘sieve’ and when to ‘filter’
Russell Finex don’t just specialize in the sieving of powders, but also handle a wide range of liquid applications. Russell Finex filter and sieve a vast array of liquids, including chemicals, inks, paints, water,liquid chocolate, honey and even malt whisky.
The range of industrial filters offer the following benefits:
-Fully enclosed system
-Can operate under pressure – meaning increased throughputs
-Continuous cleaning of the screen
-Quieter in operation than a screening machine
The range of sieves offer the following benefits:
-Open system, which is sometimes preferred for screen inspection
-Can handle large volumes of oversize material
-Low and high speed versions available depending on product viscosity
-Multi-screen separations can be achieved on one unit
-Screens can be re-meshed – cost effective
Both types of unit come in a range of sizes to suit your throughput requirements and can be stripped down without tools for ease of cleaning. Sometimes your specific application could be served equally well by both units, but in most cases your application needs will dictate that one type of unit may have the edge over the other.

That is where Russell Finex’s 80 years of experience in sieving and filtration comes into play. Put experienced engineers to the test who will help find the right machine for you. With specialized test and research facilities in the UK, US, Belgium and India, you are able to test material and equipment under controlled conditions to provide you complete peace of mind before purchase. These technology centres can adapt to a wide range of testing conditions, recreating your processing environment as closely as possible. Test videos of trials can also be provided for review by you and your colleagues. Alternatively equipment is also available for testing at your production facilities where the separation equipment will ultimately be installed.
