When Enzymatic Therapy stopped outsourcing and built its own US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved manufacturing facility, the goal was to improve product quality, streamline production and ramp up sales growth.
A crucial step was selecting the right sieving equipment to remove any agglomerates, oversized particles or contaminants from incoming raw dry materials. For quality assurance (QA) and maintenance reasons, the company frowned on brushes or metal rollers that pushed product through the sieve as this could result in contamination such as brush fibres.
To resolve these challenges, Enzymatic Therapy chose a high-capacity, 22in Russell Compact Sieve®.
The first step in ensuring quality involves passing all dry materials through a 16in mesh screen to remove oversized particles. The Russell Easy-Clean Magnetic Separator™ removes any submesh sized ferrous contaminants that can sometimes occur due to the pulverising or processing of raw materials into powder. Some materials are also run through a finer 40in mesh screen to improve binding with other materials.
The unique vibratory screeners are a breakthrough improvement over conventional screeners where reliability, cleaning efficiency and headroom or room size are issues. Since the Russell Compact Sieve® is crevice-free, and entirely constructed from polished stainless steel including stands, all surfaces are easily cleanable. Its simple design makes it easy to strip down and clean without tools.
