Bruckner dryer for highly sensitive knitted fabric finishing

Aug '16
Mauritius based garment manufacturer Compagnie Mauricienne de Textile Ltée (CMT) has invested in a Bruckner dryer for finishing of highly sensitive knitted fabric, with an elastane content of up to 15 percent.

“The focus of this innovative concept was above all an absolutely low-tension material flow and the shortest possible fabric path in order to reduce residual shrinkage,” Bruckener said.

From the pin-on-point to the interior of the dryer, the machine features a belt that supports the moist fabric over the complete width, which prevents sagging and fabric distortions.

“The belt is coated with Teflon which has undergone special treatment and this technology has proved its effectiveness in avoiding marks and snags on delicate fabric,” the German finishing textile machinery expert added.

In designing the machine, Brückner once again used the proven and patented split-flow air circulation system, which system achieves a considerable output increase with reduced energy consumption.

“The additional counter-arrangement in each half-zone, in combination with the patented Venturi-mixing, allows adapting the circulating air temperatures for each process individually,” the company stated.

Additionally, the air impingement above and below the fabric web is adapted to the drying profile of the fabric via two speed-controlled fans.

“This leads to an ideal temperature distribution and to an extremely homogeneous and gentle air impingement on the fabric web,” Bruckner observed. (AR)
