There is always a higher level – Metso has developed superior refiner segments concepts for all processes
There are limits. But honestly, do we know exactly when the limit is reached? Our brains create solutions to problems based on the information at hand and then we think we’ve reached the limit. We regard this as “state-of-the-art” technology. We optimize the processes and then often stabilize them at that level. Some engineers might feel satisfied at this point, but at Metso we don’t.
Constantly testing the limits is a well-established culture among those of us who work in refiner segment technology. Our application experts and designers are always looking for a way to move to a higher level. For a mountaineer, moving to a higher level is not always straightforward because mountains, like processes, are unique, and this means that a solution for one particular location is not necessarily possible at another. But with experience of over 2000 operational applications worldwide, our staff can always find ways to reach new levels.
Every refining process is unique
Therefore, it is important to use correct segments to obtain the pulp and paper quality desired. In cooperation with our customers, we continuously develop our products to improve the performance of our customers' production lines.
Benefits of refiner segment optimization:
- Reduced production costs
- Optimized refining process
- Fine-tuned pulp and paper quality
