The blocking or blinding of mesh is a common problem when sieving difficult powders, which can result in increased downtime and loss of good product. Whilst manual cleaning is one way to maintain your mesh screens, this can result in the mesh becoming damaged or broken.
Russell Finex offer various deblinding devices to overcome the various challenges when screening problematic materials:
Ultrasonic Sieve Deblinding Systems
The Vibrasonic® Deblinding System applies an ultrasonic frequency to the sieve mesh to break down surface tension, making the mesh friction free and preventing particles from blinding or blocking the sieve mesh. Read more.
A Vibrasonic® Probe is fitted to the mesh screen and using a robust food grade titanium transducer, transmits an ultrasonic frequency through the mesh, effectively making the wires friction free.
We offer a range of configurations to ensure we meet needs of your application. Our standard configuration has the titanium transducer housed within a brushed aluminium cover and supplied with a hard wearing PVC conduit and connector.
Hygienic sanitary designs – Ideally suited for food and pharmaceutical industries, the aluminium cover is replaced with a brushed or mirrored fully stainless steel cover along with either a fixed stainless steel or flexible FDA approved flexible silicone conduit.
Explosion proof probes – We have certification to provide probes for all ATEX explosion ratings including Zone 20 as well as meeting NEC standards.
Simple devices that are used to help break down agglomerated, clumped powders or to assist in the screening of low density powders.
Mechanical Deblinding Systems
A conventional method using discs or balls to dislodge particulate or remove agglomerated powders from in between mesh apertures.
