Cast Refiner Fillings

GL&V has over 160 years of refining experience and supplies refiner plates to all major low consistency refiner manufacturers (Beloit Jones, Twin Flo, Black Clawson, etc). Working with the GL&V Rebuild and Refiner Groups, we supply complete refining solutions to Optimize your Refining System. We service our customers by providing Refiner process audits to provide optimum fiber quality and lower operating costs. We have flexible inventory programs and warehouses in multiple locations to provide short deliveries.

A GL&V process audit will provide recommendations on the system operation as well as make recommendations for refiner plate optimization.  We focus on the customer’s goals which include energy savings, improved refiner plate life and improved fiber development.  We offer a complete refining package beyond plates to optimize a refiner system.

A full range of alloys is available for all applications:

  • High-Chrome White Iron & NiHard
  • Stainless Steel (440 C, 17-4 PH, & CA40)
  • Carburized Stainless Steel
    • Equa-Flo® Refiner Plate Design:
      • Tapered Master Groove provides better feeding of the refining zones
      • Tapered Full Radius Bar End minimizing chance for fiber or contamination accumulation for improved hydraulics
      • Equal Bar Fields for segmented plates with a master groove in between each segment improving the hydraulic capacity of the plates
      • Older designs have partial fields on each edge of the segments where the bars don’t align causing a flow disruption and a pinch point which is detrimental to fiber development
    • Ultra Low Intensity Applications - Narrow Bar patterns with reduced draft angle for low intensity applications
    • Low Flow Scenarios - Underhung Refiner Plates to satisfy the refiner hydraulically and reduce energy costs
