Russell Finex exhibits at the UK’s leading exhibition for processing and packaging

The UK’s leading production line event, PPMA 2018, is a comprehensive exhibition showcasing new production innovations and technologies within the food and pharmaceutical processing industry. The exciting three-day exhibition held at NEC, Birmingham took place from 25th – 27th September 2018, and facilitated synergy between over 8,000 professionals and influencers.

PPMA 2018 proved to be another successful year for Russell Finex, with high quality enquiries and connections being made. The company presented a selection of innovative sieving and filtration equipment for the food and pharmaceutical industry.


Congratulations to Russell Finex who was named ‘Exporter of the Year’ for the third consecutive year in a row, and also received commendation for their ‘Outstanding Customer Service’ worldwide.

The Russell Compact Sieve® removes all oversized contamination from powders and liquid slurries, whilst reducing production downtime and increasing product purity.

The Finex Separator™ allows full sieving flow on all mesh screens, ensuring wet and dry materials are screened and classified accurately in one operation. During the exhibition it was fitted with the Russell Screen Changer™ and Integrated Control System for improved operator handling.

The Liquid Solid Separator™ has the ability to separate soft and fibrous oversized materials from any liquid process. The addition of a centrifugal separator to food and pharmaceutical processing lines can reduce the disposal cost of effluents streams as well as the loss of good product.

The Russell Hygiene Filter™ meets the sanitary requirements of food and pharmaceutical industries. The self-cleaning filter uses a unique wiper system to ensure continuous removal of contamination as fine as 10 micron.

Richard Baker, Russell Finex Sales Manager for the UK remarks, “PPMA provides a good platform to connect with potential and existing customers, and to network with other businesses similar to our own. This year has again been a great honour, as Russell Finex is awarded ‘Exporter of the Year' for the third time in a row. This award signifies and highlights that our efforts as a group are being acknowledged on a regional and global scale.”
