FOTEG Istanbul is regarded as the original international food processing trade show in Turkey and returns for its 13th edition from 16 – 19 March 2017. The exhibition, held at Istanbul Expo Centre, brings together leading food suppliers and producers from around the world, and Russell Finex is looking forward to being part of the event.

With over 800 companies exhibiting and 15,000 visitors expected to attend, this edition of FOTEG promises to be the greatest to date. Top food professionals from Europe, the Middle East and North Africa will take the opportunity to share the latest industry technology, trends and tips, as well as taking part in technical conferences.

As the Turkish economy continues to grow, the country has become an important market for European and North American food producers. In particular, Turkey has become a hotbed for production of food additives and flavorings. As demand for such ingredients increases and regulations continue to tighten, it is important for manufacturers to be aware of technological advancements that could keep their production process ahead of competitors’. From food processing, packaging and hygiene control equipment to ingredients handling and industrial bakery technology, FOTEG tackles an array of industry requirements.

Russell Finex is delighted to be presenting its latest range of separation technology for the food industry at FOTEG Istanbul 2017. With a range of sieving and filtration equipment suited to wet or dry food applications, the exhibition will provide the perfect chance for visitors to view and discuss a selection of quality products. Experienced sales engineers will be able to help identify which solution best meets a specific application, with customized options also available to meet the unique requirements of different materials.


Russell Finex has over 80 years of experience across a range of food processing applications. As a global leader in the manufacture of industrial safety screeners, the company has supplied high quality machinery to renowned global companies such as Nestlé, Mondelēz, Unilever and Mars. The following equipment will be on display at FOTEG Istanbul 2017:

- The Russell Compact 3in1 Sieve™- This safety sieve makes hand-loading ingredients easier through a low-level bag dumping station. The compact, straight-through design can fit easily into your existing production process, and the addition of the Russell Easy-Clean Magnetic Separator™ removes ferrous contamination.

The Finex Separator™ - This industrial round separator provides up to five fractions of wet or dry product, and can be applied to methods such as dewatering, de-dusting or product recovery. The following upgrades will be demonstrated on the machine at FOTEG 2017:

- Russell Vibrasonic® Deblinding System – This ultrasonic anti-blinding device allows screening of difficult powders through finer mesh. Applying an ultrasonic frequency to the screen eliminates mesh blockage, increasing throughput.

The Russell Gated Outlet™ - This pneumatically controlled gate controls the flow of the product through the oversize outlet, reducing the loss of good product.

Russell Vibrastop™ - Uses the latest in starter technology to eliminate excessive movement during start up and shut down, eliminating premature wear of components and damage to connecting equipment.
