The leading specialists in the sieve cleaning business from Germany now distributes its products also from blue plastic with blue Nylon. Filip is thus responding to the corresponding demand from internationally operating mill builders and large milling groups worldwide.
Blue is the only color that does not appear in natural grain foods. Against this background and steadily rising safety requirements, mill builders and mills worldwide are increasingly interested in sieve cleaners in the color blue. That’s why FILIP now also offers their products out of blue plastic – of course, in terms of food compatibility, they are FDA and EU compliant. The new Blue Line product range contains sieve cleaners for plansifter sieves with and without backwire: for flour sieves, for primary sieves and the sieve pan.
Mirko Filip, General Manager of Filip Sieve Cleaners and responsible for product development: “Before we started to develop our Blue Line, we talked a lot with international mill builders and mills around the world and discussed the demand of blue sieve cleaners with blue trim material. During the discussions, we quickly realized that there is obviously a strong demand – at least in some markets/countries. That’s why we now offer our bestsellers in blue color, too.”
Consequently, FILIP equips their new sieve cleaning brushes with blue nylon trim material: for a complete optical detectability. Nevertheless: for those customers, which prefer a blue cleaner body and white Nylon bristles, FILIP’s Blue Line sieve cleaning brushes are also available with white Nylon.
Mirko Filip adds: “To make it very clear: our cleaners do not break during a lifetime of 2-3 years – even under the hard conditions within the plansifter. We only use very high-quality plastic raw material which is very resilient as equally elastic. However, we know from discussions with customers around the world, some mills want to prove that all potential foreign material that could enter the semolina/flour during the production process need to be optically detectable. Following from this the blue color is a preventive security indicator – even it is not necessary in case of sieve cleaners from FILIP. That’s why we offer the new Blue Line products additionally to our standard sieve cleaners out of white plastic.” The Blue Line sieve cleaners are now available through Filip directly or via authorized distribution partners worldwide.
