A shorter retention time in a digester is required to obtain a higher yield in chemical pulping. This causes undissolved bundles of fibers, knots and shives which can be solved with our innovative refiner segments. With the tailored solutions, you no longer need to make sacrifices when selecting segments for your refiner. Save valuable energy, elevate refiner availability, boost production rates, extend your refiner segments' lifetime, and improve pulp quality.
Enhanced production rate
In the field of refining, we are continuously developing new refiner segment technologies to improve customers’ competitiveness. We offer an effective refiner segment design toolbox with patented features, experienced refiner specialists, and the most effective research and development support. Our philosophy is that every refiner is unique and needs custom-designed refiner segments.
Extended lifetime. Our Refiner Segments assist Chemical Pulp mills in minimizing production losses and increasing refiner availability, thereby reducing the number of stoppage days. Unlike traditional techniques, our latest feature addresses the issue of short segment lifespan by delivering enhanced utility and functionality to each refiner, effectively solving the problem.

Energy savings of
Valmet offers the widest selection of refiners and refiner segments, incorporating state-of-the-art innovations to minimize energy consumption. Let's explore how our Swedish customer achieved enhanced performance in chemical pulp production and medium consistency refining.
The term "no load" is used to describe the behavior of motors or other rotating systems under idealized conditions, where there is no external resistance. In this case, the idealized conditions refer to medium consistency (MC) of 10-15% fibers.
The implementation of optimized effective refining zone enabled our customer to achieve significant energy savings of 150 kW per refiner without affecting the production rate.
Furthermore, this resulted in a remarkable 13% reduction in CO2 emissions, contributing to a greener and more sustainable operation.
