PACK EXPO International 2016 Show Review

December 1, 2016

Russell Screen Changer showcased at PACK EXPO 2016

PACK EXPO continues to be the largest packaging and processing trade show in North America and the latest show held from November 6-9th, 2016 proved to be another great success. A record breaking 46,000 attendees visited the show from all corners of the globe including, Brazil, France, Germany, Argentina and the USA.

During the four-day event in Chicago, the Russell Finex booth featured live demonstrations of sieving innovations as well as tailored separation solutions at every stage of the production process.

Visitors were excited to see the new award-winning Russell Screen Changer™ which was the center of attention at PACK EXPO. This screen deck lifting system provides easy mesh screen inspection and replacement for all makes of vibratory screeners, - helping operators quickly and safely change mesh screens, while improving productivity.

The following machines were also displayed on the booth:

The Russell Compact Sieve® is a circular industrial sieve designed for high capacity check-screening of dry or wet materials. The space-saving sieve uses less plant floor space than conventional vibratory sieves and is ideal for safety screening products prior to packaging.

The Finex Separator™ is ideal for removing fines and/or oversize contamination from liquids or powders. The gyratory separator uses a specially engineered vibrator assembly to increase productivity and separation accuracy. Available in four sizes: 30", 40", 48" and 60" diameter, the high-performance separator can accurately grade materials up to 5 different fractions in one operation.

The Vibrasonic® Deblinding System is used to eliminate blinding and blocking of mesh - helping to maintain consistent flow rates. The revolutionary ultrasonic sieving system significantly increases screening capacity, allowing powders to be accurately screened as low as 20 microns to obtain a better quality final product.

Michael Lehnert, Mid-West Regional Sales Manager for Russell Finex commented, “PACK EXPO was definitely a success. The event was a great opportunity to connect with manufacturing professionals and discuss projects from a wide range of market segments”.
