The Smart Choice


Overhung Overhung pattern designs have a larger outer diameter which increases the capacity of the refiner plate and the amount of available bar edge length, or kilometers per revolution (Km/rev) for increased plate life and improved pulp quality. Since the hydraulic flow range of any low consistency refiner is determined by the rotational speed and the plate diameter, the capacity of the refiner can be increased with a larger diameter plate. The higher no-load energy of an overhung plate can be offset
by longer plate life and pulp quality benefits
of lower intensity refining.

The J&L Fiber Services applications team will recommend the best solution to improve your refining process. Please Contact us today or "Ask Plato" to challenge our experts with your refiner plate needs.
