Russell Finex recently provided efficient solutions for Visen, one of the top producers of water-based emulsion. To meet increased customer demand, Visen invested in new manufacturing facilities and undertook a review of all their existing processes. The review identified that the simple filter cloth system which was in place for check-screening the latex emulsion prior to packing needed to be improved.
In search for a new filtration system, Visen attended an exhibition and were intrigued by the filtration system on display at the Russell Finex stand. With an in-depth consultation provided, an onsite trial was arranged for the Self-Cleaning Russell Eco Filter®, and subsequently ten self-cleaning in-line filters were purchased.
The installation of the filters has enabled Visen to eliminate the problems associated with the previous system. With its reusable filter element, the Self-Cleaning Russell Eco Filter® have minimized production downtime as stoppages are no longer required. Substantial cost savings have also been gained as the removable element can be easily cleaned and used repeatedly. In addition, with the installation of the Russell Filter Management System™ which is designed to continuously monitor the filtration process, the filter is able to run efficiently without operator involvement.
