Valmet high consistency refiner segments technologies can be utilized to meet operational targets such as reducing production costs, improving fiber quality or optimizing refiner operation depending on customer needs and refiner operations.
During the decades we have gained detailed knowledge of most types of refiners, including Valmet OEM refiners as well as those made by our competitors. Our refiner segment experts are continuously cooperating with customers and commit to optimizing their refiner processes with new technology.
In the field of refining, Valmet is continuously developing new refiner segment technology to improve customers’ competitiveness. We offer to our customers an extensive contact network, experienced refiner specialists, effective refiner segment design toolbox with patented features and the most effective research and development support. Our philosophy is that every refiner is unique and needs custom designed refiner segments.
Without Turbine-feature it wouldn’t be possible for us to operate today.”

Restrictions create a great degree of turbulence, which forces fibers up into the disc gap. The design of the feeding bar reduces the refiner’s energy requirement.
In the low energy refiner segments the bars form a pumping angle at a very critical area in the disc gap.
The unique two-step bar leading edge design of the Edge lock segments makes possible more effective refining of fibers.
With Low shives segments pulp quality can been improved, shive content reduced and refiners’ operation kept stable.
Ensuring smooth and gentle feed, leveling out incoming feed variations.
High fibrillation segments give better control of the disc gap and improve the loadability of the refiners.
Curved dams increases the amount of material in the corners of bars and dams, which is where most of the segment wear occurs.
