Nishat Mills to install Monforts Energy Towers
Oct '10
Pakistan's fully vertical integrated textile producer, Nishat Mills, has ordered six Energy Towers from Monforts to ensure significant energy savings.

To combat ever increasing energy costs, Pakistan's vertically integrated fabric producer, Nishat Mills has ordered six Energy Towers from A. Monforts Textilmaschinen.

The towers will be installed on three existing Monforts, Montex stenters at Nishat's Lahore finishing facility.

Fresh air passed through the towers heat recovery system is heated by the exhaust air of the stenter, before re-entering the stenters chambers.

With the Monforts heat recovery system capitalising on the high temperatures of the exhaust air, savings of up to 30% on energy costs can be achieved.

The Monforts Towers each housed within a 1.3 m x 1.7m x 2.9 m high enclosure, have been designed for retrofitting to existing stenters or hot flues where access is restricted above the units.

They are built as a 'stand alone' unit for installation alongside the stenter.

Ordered through the local Pakistan representative Al Ameen, its six Monforts Towers are scheduled to be installed before the end of the year.

Since its formation in 1951 as the flagship company for the Nishat Group, it has grown into the most modern and biggest composite unit in Pakistan.”

Its finishing facility has in addition to four Montex stenters, 3 Monforts Sanforising unit and a 4 Pad Thermosol to produce more then 7 million metres of fabric a month for many for the worlds leading apparel and home textile brands.

Special finishes offered by Nishat Mills include soil release, resist finish, peach skin effect finish, fire retardant, water proofing, anti crease, easy care and anti-microbial finish.

No stranger to Monforts, the Nishat Group, comprising Nishat Apparel (Dyeing & Finishing) and Nishat Home Textile, Umer Fabrics - making it Pakistan's largest textile manufacturer - has almost 10 Montex stenters.
