Royal Crown Derby Ensures Material Quality With Russell Finex Sieve

July 21, 2004
Royal Crown Derby is using a Compact 900 sieve supplied by Russell Finex in the quality control of the raw materials used in the production of its English Fine Bone China.

Royal Crown Derby, part of the Royal Doulton Group, is using a Compact 900 sieve supplied by Russell Finex in the quality control of the raw materials used in the production of its English Fine Bone China. The company uses the Russell sieve in its slip house, where raw materials are combined to make the clay that forms the basis of all its fine china. Part of a range of high-performance separators, the Compact 900 achieves high throughputs as a result of effective screen evacuation. Material passes straight through the vibratory mesh without hold up to the next process stage. Material is passed through the sieve's vibrating mesh, and is then passed through a second mesh with a slightly larger micron size, which acts as an additional control to protect the virgin material and ensure the quality of the finished product.
