Payback boost with hybrid former upgrades
Metso is the original supplier of the OptiFormer Hybrid with blade technology (formerly named as SymFormer MB), with numerous references around the world. The patented loading element design is particularly well suited for loadable blade-equipped former rebuilds and upgrades.
OptiFormer Hybrid with blade technology enables easy controlled pulsation to improve formation and dewatering capacity with the loading table and loading elements. In some cases it may also be good to increase top suction unit channel discharge capacity through channel modifications.
Typical upgrade example including a new pre-forming table, a new loading unit with loading blades, and new ceramic blades.
