Low consistency hydrocyclones

Low consistency cleaning involves the removal of fine debris such as sand, ink, specks of bark, wax or pieces of Styrofoam. The typical low-density hydrocyclone operates at 1% consistency and is available in different configurations depending on the specific gravity of the unwanted particles. Valmet low consistency hydrocyclone technology is available in forward  hydrocyclones, reverse flow hydrocyclones, parallel flow hydrocyclones, combination  hydrocyclones.

As the OEM for legacy hydrocyclone brands such as Albia®, GLV®, and Celleco®, Valmet has the proven systems, parts, service, and expertise to keep your cleaning performance moving forward – no matter what the application.
