Expertise in Cleaning

Valmet’s hydrocyclone products remove unwanted particles such as sand, glass, metal, inks, certain unwanted organics, plastics, wax and Styrofoam down to 50 microns. These systems work together with other Valmet products, such as pressure screens, for optimal removal of such particles.

Valmet Hydrocyclones can be used to protect the subsequent process equipment like screens, deflakers and refiners from impurities by efficiently separating coarse particles and increase the lifetime of process equipment. We understand that the needs and processes of every mill vary.
