Record German Thies dryer in China …and more to come

Guangdong Esquel Textiles Co. (GET) takes delivery of the largest Thies pressure dryer in China at its Gaoming-based yarn dyeing plant – with an order for a second unit anticipated for delivery later this year; additionally 15 Eco-bloc dyeing units have also been installed in recent months to meet a new 600t/month expansion programme.

Regarded as a trendsetter for its environmental practises, Guangdong Esquel Textiles (GET), as part of the Esquel Group of Companies, continues to lead the way for China's textile producers. It has recently taken delivery China's largest Thies pressure dryer, rated at 860 kg capacity, at its Gaoming-based woven and knitted yarn dyeing plant – providing significant labour-cutting and energy saving benefits. An order for a second dryer is expected for delivery later this year.

The company has also commissioned a line of seven Eco-bloc dyeing units in May; bringing its total of new Eco-bloc's to 15 over recent months, plus the imminent arrival of a further four units currently en-route from Germany.

According to Assistant General Manager, Cheng Peng, embedded in Esquel's corporate culture that guides the way it does business, the company fully recognises the importance of sustainable production as well as its moral obligation to look after the environment in which it operates.

The Chinese Government also has very clear regulations on, for example, energy and water consumption, for compliance by textile factories across China.

“Each year these standards get higher and more stringent,” he added, continuing, “the recent installation of the 860kg Thies pressure dryer is an excellent example of utilising new generation equipment employing energy saving benefits such as the latest frequency inverter and pc controls technology and heat exchanger systems.”

Esquel was amongst the first Chinese garment producers to invest in frequency inverters in 1998, in line with the recent encouragement of the Chinese Government to industrial enterprises.

“Not only do we save energy consumption with the dryer – for example, just 220 kW/t of yarn and 2.2 t of steam compared with 670 kW/t of yarn used with our conventional hydro-extractors and rf dryers, but further, we are able to recover a certain amount of the steam energy as condensing water and heated up cooling water. This means overall energy consumption is reduced by 40-50%.”

“The new Eco-bloc dyeing units, also offering the latest state-of-the-art technology with reduced liquor ratios mean that we are able to produce the same quantities of yarn but using significantly less water,” he said.
