Anode Press Block Refurbishment

Increase availability and improve performance

The anode press block is a key component of Metso's anode preparation machine. Overhaul of the anode press block is recommended every three years or after 2 million strokes. After this point, the risk of sudden breakdown increases without regular maintenance.

New spare press block

Our first step is to deliver a new spare press block, which makes it possible to use the new and the original press block units alternately. When switching becomes a routine, it can be done in just one working day, potentially saving several days of production each time. Changing the press block is much faster than overhauling the parts on site – this method means around one day of stoppage, whereas overhauling takes about one week.

Block testing

The new spare block comes fully tested and with the latest Metso technology, including flexible joints on the side press plates, new sealing solutions, etc. We recommend the change of press block be supervised by a Metso expert to ensure an efficient and trouble-free switch.


After the press block units have been switched, it is possible to carry out the overhaul whenever convenient, without disturbing production. An even better alternative is to send the unit back to our facility for a complete professional overhaul.
