Industrial Sieves for Milk Powder at Nestle Chile

Published 23 April 2018 | By Russell Finex

Nestlé safeguard their milk powder product quality at their new 26,000 tonnes/year processing plant in Chile

With a continued commitment to developing operations, and a change in society for a healthier lifestyle leading to increased demand of milk powder products, Nestlé have invested in a new factory in Osorno, Chile. The new factory is one of the most technologically advanced dairy factories of its kind and is used to produce a range of milk products with added nutritional value. Requiring the highest quality machinery, Russell Finex, a long term supplier to Nestlé, provided purpose built sieving equipment for the new plant.

Traditionally rotary sifters have been used for the screening of powders. However this method of screening presents many problems, such as little oversize being collected and mesh breakage. Therefore there has been a move to use gravity fed circular vibratory sieves as an alternative. Following a consultation with a Russell Finex Sales Representative, it was decided that the industrial screener Russell Compact Sieve® would best meet Nestlé's requirements. Unlike conventional vibrating screens, the high-performance Russell Compact Sieve® is able to sieve milk powder at a finer mesh size without compromising flow rates, preventing the sieve from becoming a bottleneck in the process. Constructed in the highest quality stainless steel, the Russell Compact Sieve® is enclosed for total containment, easy to clean between batches, allowing operators to strip down and clean the machines without tools.
