Smart filtration ensures lower fresh water consumption and reduces chemical consumption

OptiDewater DiscOptiDewater Disc – New technology and design improves performance, capacity and reliability

Valmet’s OptiDewater Disc improves efficiency and reliability while simplifying maintenance and service procedures. Several design features secure the disc filter’s increased capacity. Good flow characteristics – the result of shaft design, optimum internal volumes and filtrate valve selection – give the OptiDewater Disc better cake formation and filtrate quality while offering increased capacity compared to other similarly sized disc filters.
