Pulp and paper industry

FAN is a pioneer for separation technology. In the pulp and paper industry the name FAN stands for innovation quality and reliability. Approved by thousands of installations worldwide. FAN is specialized on its core task and therefore the product range is reduced to the essentials, not only to offer the usual standards but also to be one step ahead. Our actions meet the requirements of the pulp and paper industry and we always search for possibilities to continuously improve our competitiveness. FAN covers the demands of this industry and increases the efficiency and reduces costs sustainably!

Product portfolio

FAN offers a tailor-made product portfolio: from the press screw separator “PSS” for the separation of fibrous effluent, such as fine reject or white water, the heavy screw press “BP” for dewatering of coarse pulper reject, the sludge press "SPS" for the dewatering of biological sludge, to centrifugal cleaners for high density separation, submersible mixers and pumps.


Best results at low energy consumption, user-friendly operation, compact design, high quality of workmanship and a long product lifetime. FAN separators provide, in comparison to conventional screw- or belt presses, usually a higher dryness in the solids and at the same time, a good effluent quality. Due to the possible filling with a concentration starting from only 0.1% TS and up to 20% TS, additionally machinery for pre-thickening are not required what reduces investment- and operational expenditures. The higher dry content in the solids leads to a higher heating value or in case of landfill, to a reduction of transport and disposal costs.

Typical applications:

  • Dewatering of fine-reject from stock preparation
  • Dewatering of coarse pulper reject
  • Dewatering of fibrous effluent and primary sludge
  • Dewatering of deinking and floatation sludge
  • Separation of white-water runoff from DAF unit
  • Dewatering of biological (secondary) sludge
  • Fiber recovery from process- and waste water
  • Replacement of belt presses
  • etc.

Shortest payback time!

Do you know ...

  • how many tons of waste are generated annually?
  • about the savings potential by reduction of volume and weight?
  • that valuable raw materials can be separated from effluent streams and reused?
  • that you protect your equipment by filtering abrasive elements?
  • that as a consequence the maintenance costs can be reduced?
  • what effect the raise of dry matter content of 1% has?
  • how much energy can be saved thereby?
  • that the payback period for a FAN Separator is usualy only a few month?
