Engineered to improve the quality of your powder or liquid products, our range of vibro sifters are proven to increase throughput rates and eliminate oversize contamination for a wide range of applications. Used within a number of industries, including food and pharmaceuticals, the Russell Compact Sieve® is favored for its high-capacity sieving and small footprint for easy integration into new and existing production lines.
Achieving higher throughput rates compared to conventional spring mounted sifters while enhancing the quality of your final products
Commonly used in food and pharmaceuticals industries, our range of vibro sifters meet strict hygiene requirements
Available in a range of sizes and options, we are sure to meet the requirements of your application
With its unique rubber suspension and robust design, mechanical noise from the vibratory sifter is greatly reduced, further protecting operators health and safety
Built to the high standard, a high-performance motor is used to transmit high frequency vibration onto the mesh surface for effective sieving. Thanks to its size, the Russell Compact Sieve® requires a much smaller footprint than conventional sifters, without compromising on sifting capacity. Also thanks to its hygienic design, makes this vibro sifter the optimal choice for sifting a wide range of food products such as flour, bakery ingredients and other ingredients such as herbs and spices.
For materials which need to be pneumatically conveyed, there is the Russell Compact Airswept Sieve which allows materials to be conveyed pneumatically from one location to the next within a production line. This setup is a popular choice within the food and pharmaceutical industries due to it being a completely enclosed operation, protecting the product and the operators.
Specifically designed to remove ferrous contamination, we also offer a magnetic separator option with our vibro sifters. Commonly used in bakery applications, the magnetic separator is constructed from high-grade stainless steel and available in various strengths to meet industry hygiene standards.
Having worked with global pharmaceutical companies, including Pfizer and GSK, we also offer specialized options to safeguard the quality and hygiene of your products. We have additional hygiene options such as a mirror polished finish using high-quality 316L grade stainless steel to minimize the risk of metal contaminants from your application. Combined with the sieve’s easy-to-disassemble construction, this helps to keep the equipment clean while minimizing the risk of product contamination.
“We required a sieving system that would enable us to check-screen the milk powder to meet the standard set not only by Nestlé but also by Chile and the countries the milk powder is being exported to. With the industry moving towards 2mm screening, it was important to choose a sieve that would meet this criteria without slowing down the production process.”

Vibratory sieves are widely used in the processing industries as an efficient way of protecting ingredients and end-products from contamination and lumps. Industrial vibratory screeners are generally made of a single deck containing a mesh which is used for screening out oversize, agglomerates and foreign bodies from liquids and powder. The motor attached to the screen uses an out of balance force to create vibration, which sends the materials through the mesh.
While the word sieves and screens can be used interchangeably, sieves and strainers are not the same thing. Generally sieves can be used to screen powders and liquids, while the term strainer (also referred to as filtration) is more commonly used when referring to screening liquids or slurries.
The difference between circular and linear vibratory sieves are the way in which the machines are shaped and the motion they use to move materials through the mesh. In linear machines, the back and forth motion allows for powders to move linearly during the sieving process and are not typically used for liquid applications. Round vibrating screeners use a circular vibratory motion and are suited to both liquid and powder applications. While both linear and circular sieves use vibration to process materials, circular screening machines tend to be smaller in size and more hygienic in design, making them easier to fit into processing lines, improving process efficiencies, allow more sanitary screening and reducing labor costs.
