Nut food maker uses self-cleaning filter for cooking oil recovery process

With the cost of cooking oils rising, food manufacturers are looking for solutions to optimise their food processing. One such solution is to reuse the cooking oil used in production processes by filtering out contaminants after use, such as burnt food debris.

Milhans Foods, a food manufacturer of Turkish nut products, has now adopted high-temperature self-cleaning filters for its cooking oil recovery process.

The Self-Cleaning Russell Eco Filter from Russell Finex allowed the food manufacturer to overcome challenges such as frequent downtime, inconsistent filtration quality and low throughput by replacing its 80-micron paper filtration system with a 50-micron self-cleaning filter.

The company achieved ROI in just eight months, by eliminating the need for replacement paper filter cartridges.

The integrated solution provided other benefits, such as:

  • enhanced productivity by minimising downtime and automating processes;
  • improved filtration quality and throughput rates with finer micron filtration and a self-cleaning design;
  • operator safety with an enclosed design, reducing exposure to hot oil.

Russell Finex is a specialist in sieving and filtration equipment and can tailor solutions through machine trials to meet user requirements.
