Double Disc Refiner

The AWE disc refiner is a low-consistency double disc refiner that delivers exceptional mechanical performance and is designed with our easy-to-maintain philosophy.  The AWE has low no-load power consumption and offers superior fiber development that can be further optimized using Finebar refiner plates. 

  • Flexibility:  Ability to vary plate sizes within the refiner.  Plate patterns are available for a variety of furnishes and refining goals
  • Control:  Mechanical drive system with a variable-speed motor allows precise control as process conditions change
  • Simplicity:  Single inlet and outlet for simplified piping.  Open access design for easy plate replacement.  Finebar MiniSegments™ are standard for crane-free replacement
  • Reliability:  Parallelism between the rotor and stator disc plates is accurately maintained by precision manufacturing and unique assembly mechanisms
  • Maintenance ease:  The rotor is easy to move which facilitates plate changes

Conical Refiner

The ADC double conical refiner is the next-generation low consistency refiner that embodies Finebar technology in a low maintenance design.  This refiner features a twin conical design for exceptional performance in terms of capacity and energy use, along with ease of maintenance.

  • Capacity: Twin conical design increases the production capacity of a single unit
  • Superior fiber development: less damage and cutting of fibers
  • Power savings:  lower no load power consumption
  • Easy maintenance: quick replacement of fillings
