New Montex 8000 stenter from Monforts
Oct '11
The Montex 8000 stenter from Monforts includes a number of new features and options that are particularly suited for knitted fabrics, non-woven and technical textiles applications.

The new, European-built, Montex 8000 stenter from A. Monforts Textilmaschinen features a new heat recovery module incorporating a fully automatic cleaning system for its integrated heat recovery system; a reduced distance at the infeed for knitted fabrics; a new heavy duty vertical chain; new rotating disc type 'fluff-sieves' and a vacuum system for efficient cleaning; further improved visualisation for the company's Teleservice facility; and two parallel integrated exhaust ducts in each chamber.

New heat recovery module
A new heat recovery module 'Eco booster HRC' with a fully automatic cleaning system is introduced, replacing the earlier modules, manually cleaned, tubes system.

Featuring a 'honeycombed' design the new system cleans itself fully automatically during machine operation and ensures continuous uninterrupted high availability.

Providing availability on a constant level, reduced downtime and no reduction in the stenters performance due to contaminated filters, the system is integrated into the Montex roof and requires no additional ductwork.

The new stenter is also available with a reduced infeed distance between the infeed roller and the needling point for knitted fabrics, preventing eventual edge curling. The distance has been further reduced by 60 mm.

Heavy duty chain
Complementing the range of Monforts chains, and following a market request, the new stenter is also available with a heavy duty, 'Hercules' type vertical chain; designed for heavier weight knitted, non-woven and technical textile applications. The 'Marathon' type vertical chain will be available further on together with the horizontal chain versions.

Improved 'fluff' collection
New rotating 'disc type' sieves, each equipped with a vacuum cleaning system is introduced as an option to collect 'fluff' and ensure efficient cleaning and the highest machine availability.

Two sieves per chamber can be fitted.

Split Thermal system
Designed for special coating processes and, technical and non-wovens applications, a new thermal splitting system allows different finishing temperatures in both the upper and lower nozzle systems.

This is ideal for applications such as automobile carpets where different temperatures are required on both sides of the product.

Used in conjunction with the stenters TwinAir system, the thermal split allows, for example, the drying air temperature of the top nozzles to be plus 30ºC higher than the lower nozzles.

Integrated twin exhaust channel
Especially for technical textiles, a new parallel, integrated, twin exhaust channel arrangement is available also for alternate chamber arrangements to offer a staggered 'counter type' operation.

Improved Teleservice
Further process visualisation on the new stenter offers improved Teleservice facilities with easier operation and screen viewing. New attractive flat-rates with no license fees are also available for Teleservice.
