Self-cleaning automatic filtration of honey

Sweet success for Norwegian honey producer

As part of the company’s continued aim to supply good quality honey, Norwegian based honey producer and distributor Honningcentralen previously installed a metal edge industrial filter into their new production line to remove foreign bodies from the honey such as wax and bee wings. However, this filter was inefficient, continuously requiring manual cleaning resulting in production downtime.


Recognising that they were losing valuable time and profitability, Honningcentralen sought to find a new automatic filtration solution. With more than 85 years’ experience in the processing industry, Russell Finex was recommended by Honningcentralen’s subsidiary office in Sweden. Drawing upon their experience in dealing with honey, Russell Finex recommended the Self-Cleaning Russell Eco Filter®. With its easy clean design, this liquid filter is simple to assemble and disassemble without the need for tools, a particularly useful feature for the company as each strain of honey required a different screen size. Its unique SpiroKlene™ system continuously cleans the surface of the filter element meaning frequent blockages are no longer occurring. In addition, the pressure problems they were experiencing have been eradicated as oversize material can be manually discharged.

What our clients say

“An efficient production line with a throughput of 2,000 – 2,400 kg/hr was required, and the Russell Eco Filter comfortably delivers this. The Eco Filter is better than our previous machine as the pressure is much lower and it removes all the unwanted particles from the honey.”
