Inx International increase productivity with the installation of Self-Cleaning Russell Eco Filters

As a recognized leader in decorative printing inks for beverage cans, Inx International relies on Russell Finex industrial liquid filters to achieve significant productivity gains and prevent machinery failures further down the process line. After a series of problems during the production of their liquid ink mix, Inx International identified that metallic contamination from the manufacturing process was entering the process stream. With the imminent risk of the contamination damaging expensive machinery, the company recognized that installing a permanent filtration system could play a vital role in protecting equipment.
