A food factory in China, specialising in the production of rice cereal for infants, sought help from Russell Finex to ensure products meet stringent food health and safety regulations. 

Since the factory opened, demand for its products, including milk powders, cereals and infant formula increased, calling for the need to optimise the production line.

Having never used a filtration machine the copmany trialled both the Self-Cleaning Russell Eco Filter and Russell Filter Management System in the processing line.  After a successful trial, the filter was used to filter out oversize and contamination from the rice paste before being heat treated. The filtration equipment was found to be able to handle 6 tonnes/hr, resulting in a significant boost in production.

To streamline production, the Russell Filter Management System was utilised to monitor the filtration process, minimising operator involvement. Automating this task also meant operators could focus on other tasks while eliminating the potential risk of hazardous exposure. The filter’s reusable filter elements also proved to be a cost-effective solution by eliminating the replacement and disposal costs of filter bags.
