Visit Russell Finex in Hall 9, Stand A-11

First organized in 1997, CFIA has become the most important show for the food processing industry in France. At the show 1300 exhibitors represent the whole scope of food production processes, which are divided into three main categories: Ingredients & Processed Foods, Equipment & Processes, and Packing & Conditioning.

The objective of CFIA is to create a platform where suppliers within the food processing industry can reach out to their customers and business partners. The organization purposely keeps CFIA to a manageable format by limiting the number of stands. This way the show allows visitors to meet as many exhibitors as possible in an as short time as possible.


The event takes place from the 10th to 12th of March and is held in Rennes, the center of industrial France. Last year’s edition was a success, welcoming a record of 16,000 visitors, proving the show’s success in the industry.

Russell Finex, specialists in the sieving and filtration of food products, will also be present at CFIA and look forward to meeting customers and new business contacts. At the show Russell Finex will present their high quality machinery including the Russell Liquid Solid Separator™, the Self-Cleaning Russell Eco Filter® and the Russell Compact Airlock Sieve™.

The Russell Liquid Solid Separator™ is a centrifugal separator which removes soft and fibrous materials from liquids and slurries. Because of its high capacity and small footprint, this solid-liquid separator is often used to process wash water or to recover valuable solids from waste streams for re-use. Within the food processing industry, the Russell Liquid Solid Separator™ has been used for a variety of different applications such as the processing of starch, distillers mash and grains and the separation of curd and whey. At the show the Russell Liquid Solid Separator™ will be shown in full operation, enabling you to see the centrifugal action of this machine.

The Self-Cleaning Russell Eco Filter® removes solids down to 10µm from (high viscosity) liquids. This industrial liquid filter is known for its continuous self-cleaning action, stainless steel reusable filter element and precise filtration.  The Self-Cleaning Russell Eco Filter® has a reusable filter element of which the surface is continuously cleaned by a wiper system. This saves costs as no filter media, like bags or cartridges, need to be replaced. The precise filtration of even high viscosity liquids has made the Self-Cleaning Russell Eco Filter® a popular machine for liquid chocolate or honey filtration.

With the vibrating sifter, Russell Compact Airlock Sieve™, Russell Finex are the first to introduce the concept of a clampless sieve with high product containment. The patented Twist, Lock and Inflate (TLI) pneumatic clamping system consists of simply placing the component parts into the base and locating them by twisting and locking the lid. An inflatable seal then locks the components in place, providing validatable OEL 5 containment (less than 1µg/m3). At CFIA, Russell Finex will introduce a new larger model size, namely the Russell Compact Airlock Sieve™ with a 900mm diameter. Because of its high product containment and easy to clean design, this machine offers an answer to the growing demand of attention to allergens within the food processing industry.
