Compression refining


Technology Description

Fibre refining is a key operation to create sufficient fibre surface area for bonding, thus increasing the strength of paper. However, refining also damages the fibres, thereby reducing dewatering efficiency and increasing the water retention value of paper. By reducing the shear forces through compression refining the fibre damage is reduced and energy efficiency is improved.
