AFT FINEBAR® REFINER PLATES

Finebar_header

AFT FINEBAR® refiner plates and segments are made for virtually all LC disc refiners – and a range of conical refiners. The benefits have been confirmed: higher quality fiber with less energy consumption. The patented manufacturing technology utilizes precision laser-
cutting to create ultra-fine bar patterns with exceptional strength and throughput. In addition to full cones for conicals, FINEBAR® offers full, reduced-diameter, and mini-segment designs for disk refiners. FINEBAR® delivers improved pulp strength, lower specific energy
consumption, and improved plate life.

FINEBAR® low intensity refiner plate patterns offer a unique opportunity to improve paper quality and reduce the cost to produce it. Hardwood pulps, mechanical pulps and recycled fibers can all be dramatically improved by refining at ultra-low intensity. With improved quality of individual furnish components, your furnish mix can be cost optimized.
High Capacity Plates

High hydraulic capacity within a given area of refiner plate surface is advantageous for both improved energy efficiency and improved quality benefits. The combination of increased number of bars at high volumetric capacity allows FINEBAR® to design plates that achieve lower refining intensities with reduced active refining diameters. Another demonstrated advantage has been the significantly improved plate life with our patented design.

Opportunities exist to optimize the energy requirements for all refining systems by minimizing gross power consumption and refining at the proper intensity. Reducing the active plate diameter is the best low cost approach as long as both the bar edge length and hydraulic capacity of the plate are maintained.
