Kadant Canada Corp. has completed the acquisition of Filtration Fibrewall Inc., a Canada-based supplier of pressure screen baskets and a dewatering equipment product line from a related company. The dewatering equipment, which includes twin wire presses and screw presses, extends Kadant’s fiber processing offerings and will be sold worldwide through the company’s existing sales organization.
The patent-pending Fibrewall screen cylinder design features non-welded construction, built in the round, to minimize stress and distortion and allow for maximum screening efficiency. The robust mechanical assembly and high-precision wire positioning system allow for tight slot width tolerances and a high degree of consistency. As a result, the Fibrewall cylinder maximizes screening efficiency and provides for a high capacity flow through the pressure screen in both virgin and recycled fiber applications.
“This technology-based acquisition serves to enhance our product offering to pulp and paper mills and we believe it is the top performing screen basket in the market today,” said Jeffrey L. Powell, senior vice-president of Kadant Inc. “We have seen a number of Fibrewall screen baskets performing well in extremely challenging applications, including several running in Kadant equipment.”
Kadant Inc. is a supplier to the global pulp and paper industry, with a range of products and services including paper machine accessories and systems for stock preparation, fluid handling, and water management.
