Vibratory Screeners For Ready Meal Ingredients From Russell Finex

Ready meals have become a major part of the food industry. To meet the needs of modern society, where work and social demands have meant a sacrifice on meal times, food producers continue to enhance their ready meal production lines, creating appetizing foods that can be prepared in minimal time.

In some cases, dried ingredients including flavourings, herbs and spices, flours and dried vegetables are used in the processing of ready meals such as sauces, soups and other packaged goods. To ensure the quality of these dried food ingredients, industrial screening machines are used throughout food production lines, removing oversized product and contamination.

In a Russell Finex product trial video, dry ready meal powders are screened using the Russell Compact Sieve®. This industrial food screening machine ensures the quality of wet or dry food ingredients, removing oversize and foreign contamination and guaranteeing consistent powder quality and product sizing. These screening machines fit neatly into existing food production lines with a compact design, whilst delivering high throughput rates.

The units are available with all-stainless-steel contact surfaces and can be quick and easily dismantled and assembled for cleaning, ideal for use with multiple food ingredients.

To further guarantee the quality and purity of food powders, a magnetic separator is installed below the mesh. This magnetic grate sieve provides a convenient option to removing fine iron contamination from food powders.

Throughout food production, processing, storage and transportation, various operations can result in the introduction of fine iron from the wear of processing equipment. This can be easily removed by integrating a magnetic grid. All powder passes through the grid, and ferrous contamination is attracted to its rods, whilst good powder flows through. The high-strength magnetic sieve is designed to provide optimum coverage and ensure contamination removal.
