Refiner Segments - Pro safe for pulp production

Lighter, safer way to move your refining performance forward

Taking steps to optimize low consistency refining helps pulp mills achieve their performance and production goals. While specific refining goals may vary from mill to mill, refiner segment pattern and design can have a substantial impact on refining efficiency.

  • 75% lighter than traditional cast refiner segments

Valmet Refiner Segments - Pro safe are the lighter, safer alternatives to traditional plates.  First introduced by legacy manufacturer J&L Fiber Services, Valmet is now the OEM for Pro safe refiner segments, producing them out of its Waukesha Service Center, in Waukesha, WI.

More patterns, optimum design and performance

The unique casting process used on Valmet Refiner Segments - Pro safe enables production of overhung designs that are built to drive performance. This means increased refining capacity at lower intensity with longer plate life. When compared to traditional refiner segments, Valmet customers using Valmet Refiner Segments - Pro safe benefit from:

  • Higher capacity
  • Lower refining intensity
  • Longer plate life
  • Plug-resistant plate patterns
