Jordan Refiner
Eastman Kodak Company
Rochester, New York
This Jorden refiner was manufactured by the E.D. Jones and Sons Company for the Eastman Kodak Company in 1939. Paper pulp is continuously pumped through the refiner between an inner rotating cone and the outer stationary cone. Blades on these cones flatten and fibrillate the pulp fibers, creating hairlike abrasions on the fibers and more surface contact between the fibers for a stronger paper bond. The predecessor to the Jordan refiner was the Hollander beater, which treated pulp in batches and thus had a much lower processing capacity. The successor to the Jodran refiner was the disk refiner, offering improved capacity throughout. This jordan refiner was donated by GL&V in 2005. 
The marker and refiner are located at the entrance to the Paper Discovery Center, located at 425 West Water Street, Appleton, Wisconsin 54911.
