Industrial Filtration Of Ink

Monday, 22 August 2016


FELTHAM (GB) - Self-Cleaning Russell Eco Filters® help Inx International increase productivity of their printing inks product line.

As a recognized leader in decorative printing inks for beverage cans, Inx International relies on Russell Finex self-cleaning liquid filters to achieve significant productivity gains and prevent machinery failures further down the process line. After a series of problems during the production of their liquid ink mix, Inx International identified that metallic contamination from the manufacturing process was entering the process stream. With the imminent risk of the contamination damaging expensive machinery, the company recognized that installing a permanent filtration system could play a vital role in protecting equipment.

With meeting these objectives in mind, the plant employs a fleet of six Self-Cleaning Russell Eco Filters® to filter the liquid ink mix with a 200-micron screen, to remove metallic particles and other foreign contamination. Not only has the installation of these new automatic self-cleaning filters improved product quality and reduced waste, they have also enabled Inx International to operate leaner through improved productivity.

The Russell Eco Filter® is a self-cleaning industrial filter that integrates directly into an existing pipeline and is a sought-after alternative too messy and potentially hazardous bag filters. The machine construction and design is operator friendly, enabling it be easily dismantled and cleaned during color changes with minimal disruption to production. The Self-Cleaning Russell Eco Filter® is available in a range of sizes to suit different flow rates.
