Due to the diverse and complex nature of chemical products, sieving and filtration systems play an important role in the production process to ensure the desired product specification can be met each time. When approached by a chemical manufacturing company for a new separation solution, following an in-depth consultation, Russell Finex supplied the customer with a customized vibratory screener, replacing two gyratory sieves which were previously used.
With this particular application in mind, several modifications were made to the 1500mm Russell Compact Sieve® supplied to ensure production efficiency and minimize downtime. As there were only small amounts of oversize contamination that needed to be removed the vibratory sieve was supplied without an oversize outlet, which also provided the added benefit of reducing the loss of good product. For the little amount of oversize that stayed on the mesh the customer manually cleaned the screen.
