Requirement & Challenges

Raw Cosmetic Powder contains ferrous particles & might have lumps, oversize particles along with other foreign contaminants. This all needs to be removed & separated from cosmetic powder before final packing to achieve High Quality Product.

Our Technical Expert communicated with Production Head of the company to know actual problems & concerns.

The production head quoted “We conducted test sifting using round vibration sifter for almost 2 months during pre-lab testing, but we aren’t getting the precise screening”

“The per day output we want versus the output we get is quite low & apart from that it requires high maintenance. Also, we get mid-level quality of powder as round separators aren’t capable of removing iron & ferrous particles from the powder” he added.

To which our technical expert said “We can surely resolve the issues you are currently facing with Inline Sivtek dual motor”

Further during the conversation Production Head said “The cosmetic powder is directly applied to the body and any minute quality issue can cause suffering to the customers. Rust is always a concern with cosmetic powders! The trial we conducted with round sifter was made from mild steel & chances of rust being contaminated with powder were very high. Rust degrades the product quality”
