Used Defiberator for “Fluff” Pulp Prodcution
The Unit is Still Installed and offeres As Is
It is in Excellent Conditon and is sold with all of its Installed Components
Fluff pulps are used as raw material in the absorbent core of personal care products such as diapers, feminine hygiene products, air-laid absorbent towelling, as such or with superabsorbents and/or synthetical fibres.
More than 80% of the pulps are used in baby diapers.
The most demanding application of fluff pulps is in air-laid products, used in serving utensils, various towel applications in homes, in the industry and in hospitals.
Fluff pulp for air-laid products are defibrized in a hammermill/Defibrator.

Defibration is the process of freeing the fibres from each other before entering the papermachine.
Important parameters for dry defibration are shredding energy and knotcontent.
