Valmet has developed a steam separator for recovery of steam in the Defibrator system. Valmet Steam Separator PV, a mechanical steam separator, which separates the steam from the fibers very efficiently.
With the Steam Separator PV, it is possible to remove the need for fresh steam to the pre-steaming bin, and as a result reduce the total fresh steam consumption in the system by up to 50 %. In practice this means that it’s possible to reduce the need for additional steam going to the Defibrator system and by that save the cost for producing steam that was earlier needed.
Valmet’s new technology increases profits and has positive effects on the environment

The mechanical steam separator can divert up to 50% of the generated steam from the fiber flow for recycling in the pre-steaming bin.
