In the first half of the video, the Vibrasonic® Deblinding System is turned off. At the end of the run, it is clear to see the mesh apertures have become blocked resulting in a significantly reduced flow rate. With the Vibrasonics turned on the mesh apertures remain clear and allow for the product to flow through the sieve at more than double the flow rate.
Similar to milk powder, buttermilk powder is processed using spray drying, however, buttermilk is derived from the manufacture of cream products. Buttermilk powder has a clean, dairy flavor and has excellent solubility and good emulsifying properties. This cream powder contains a higher fat content than normal milk powder, making the powder thicker with higher levels of moisture.
The higher fat content can be a problem when sieving buttermilk. As a heavier powder, it is prone to blockages and causes substantial mesh blinding which reduces overall capacity, slowing production rates. Blinding results from particles plugging into the open apertures of the screen mesh which slows down overflowing material from falling through the mesh screen.
This high capacity industrial vibrating screen for food manufacturers removes oversize contamination while ensuring correct product quality. The Russell Compact Sieve® was chosen as the machine is best suited to this process due to of its quick and easy operation, and its compact size ensured it would fit neatly into an existing production line.
The ultrasonic sanitary screener helps to sieve powders on finer meshes while offering greater accuracy and providing precise sieving down to 20µm. Ultrasonic sieving helps improve the quality of your final product as well as the value.
Worldwide leaders in fine mesh separation technology, Russell Finex has been designing and manufacturing vibratory screeners, separators, ultrasonic mesh deblinding systems and self-cleaning in-line filters for a wide variety of industries.
