Protect your milk powder and baby food quality

We have extensive knowledge in milk powder separation, whether skimmed, fat-filled or whey powders. We understand the costs associated with agglomerated product, contamination or downtime due to nozzle blockages in driers during spray drying.

We can help you remove these issues with our Russell Compact Sieve®. This unique high performance vibratory screener also provides increased productivity, improved screening accuracy and operator safety.

When combined with our Vibrasonic® mesh deblinding system it allows you to sieve on finer screens and further improve your product quality.

sieving locations

Typical locations for sieving

We understand the need to check quality at HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points). Sieving offers benefits in the following areas of production:

  • Incoming ingredients to check their quality – from bags, bulk bags or even tankers.
  • After blending to remove agglomerates or other contamination and protect spray nozzles from blocking.
  • Before packaging to check final product quality.

Success stories

Nestlé was looking for a solution that would enable it to improve product quality without reducing flow rates.
