Nishat Mills opts for Monforts Thermex 5500 with Econtrol

Continuous reactive dyeing process on a new Monforts Thermex 5500 continuous   dyeing system with an Econtrol unit at Pakistan’s Nishat Mills is thought to be the first in Pakistan.
 
Pakistan’s Nishat Mills has taken delivery of a new, purpose-ordered, Monforts  Thermex 5500 continuous dyeing process with an Econtrol process system to introduce, it is thought, the country’s first continuous reactive dyeing line.
 
According to Nishat Mills Technical Director, Hafeez- ur- Rehman Siddique the company had recognised that the combination of Thermex 5500 and Econtrol was proving extremely popular in India but the concept was new for Pakistan. “There had to be a reason for its success. Although at this point we are still learning and evaluating as it has only been a few months since its installation. We are looking to meet our target of at least a million metres per month but our decision to acquire the Thermex system was not only to increase production, but also to enhance quality and reproducibility. We also bought the Econtrol system to help us reduce the cost of production by reducing water consumption and controlling pollution as well,” he added. 
 
Nishat Mills Ltd
Nishat Mills Ltd was established in 1951 and is considered to be the flagship company of the Nishat Group. The company’s dyeing and finishing plant, based in Lahore, initially processed home textiles.
 
“Today,” said Hafeez-ur-Rehman Siddiqui, “we are working in three different sectors; home textiles, linen and bottom wear.”
 
In addition to shirting, poplins, lawn fabrics and home textiles, the facility is also equipped to handle heavy weight fabrics such as twills, canvas and bottom wear in addition to stretch fabrics in a variety of high density woven fabrics.  
 
The company’s fabric dyeing plant in Lahore were already equipped with Monforts stentering, sanforizing and other equipment, which have been complemented by the new Thermex and Econtrol systems.
 
Continuous reactive dyeing  
The Thermex 5500 continuous dyeing system along with the Econtrol was ordered through local representative Al Ameen Trading. “Since we had already been relying on Monforts technology dyeing, l felt that we should consider changing  to continuous dyeing  for bottom wear, narrow width dyeing – which accounts for 70% of our total dyeing capacity.
