Refiner segments

Valmet has developed superior refiner segments concepts for all processes

There are limits. But honestly, do we know exactly when the limit is reached? Our brains create solutions to problems based on the information at hand and then we think we’ve reached the limit. We regard this as “state-of-the-art” technology. We optimize the processes and then often stabilize them at that level.

It is no longer an option to sacrifice the segment performance in terms of fiber quality and/or resin consumption to save energy. The most important thing is to minimize the overall production cost

ServoNavitas - Unidirectional segment concept

By optimizing the refining process and refiner segments mills operational costs and product quality can be greatly effected.

Refiner Segments – Turbine segments

Energy-saving designs involve spreading the wood flow evenly over the segment rings without loosing speed.

Refiner Segments - Attack bar

Inclined bars for sharper leading edges and cleaner grooves as well as energy saving over segment lifetime.
