Filter fabrics and services for mechanical fiber
An absolutely perfect fit for disc filters
All Valmet disc filter bags – regardless of the material – are designed and made to fit perfectly in demanding applications. To ensure absolute precision we use a computer-controlled laser cutter with coded dimensions. In addition to tight and hardwearing stitches, the fabric edges are non-fraying. These fabrics incorporate everything from a perfect fit to the best materials and a long lifetime – everything you need in a disc filter bag to increase filter capacity.
WavStar filter bag is developed for all kinds of disc filter sectors. WavStar’s secret lies in its unique fabric corrugation. This solution increases the sector surface area by 29%, enhancing capacity by 10 to 25%. The corrugation also facilitates filter cake removal.

- easy maintenance and service
WavStar is suitable for new filters and upgrading. It suits all filter sectors on the market. Either a single segment or several WavStar segments can be combined with conventional flat-surface segments in a disc filter, depending on the desired capacity increase.

WavStar has the “Wow!” factor in Hallsta
“The poor capacity of our disc filters was causing us major problems and we decided to give Valmet’s WavStar filter bags a try. Now that we’ve evaluated the results after the filters have been running for more than two years, we can see the benefits, the major one being in the increased capacity," says Patrik Jansson of Holmen.
