Textiles produced with Montex stenters must rank with the best

In making the decision to move from Mumbai to its new spectacular purpose-built production facility in Gujarat State, India's vertical textile producer, Birla Century had no hesitation in ordering Monforts continuous dyeing ranges and Montex stenters for its process and finishing department.

If there was a prize for the world's best textile facility, India's Birla Century would be a contender for its new purpose-built production facility in Gujarat State.

“The concept, the brainchild of R.K. Dalmia, Senior President of Century Textiles and Industries Ltd, was that the vertical textile facility would be world class – throughout construction and in the selection of equipment,” said U.C. Gorg, Executive Producer (Purchasing and Projects); responsible for managing the project from concept to completion.

“Further, the textiles produced must also rank with the best. We also wanted to incorporate the latest technology and techniques offering maximum automation,” he added, continuing, “We never wavered from these three principles throughout the planning and implementation and had no hesitation in ordering the Monforts equipment for the new process and finishing department.”

“The Group's first experience with Monforts was in 1996 with Century Denim taking delivery of a denim finishing range. Following their experience with smooth working and quality finishing we opted for Monforts for the new Bharuch facility.”

The Monforts installation includes two Thermex continuous dyeing ranges – one each for narrow and wide width fabrics, two Montex stenters, a Monfortex sanforiser; all ordered through local representative ATE Enterprises.

Installed as two lines to process and finish up to 300 cm width fabric for bed sheets and 91-150 cm narrow width for shirts and trousers.

Greige fabrics are initially singed, scoured and bleached, if required, before passing through the respective Montex stenter line for finishing as white cotton at speeds of between 40 – 100 m/min.

Otherwise fabric is passed onto the 4-chamber Thermex continuous dyeing range, incorporating twin padders – one wide width and one narrow width.

Two elevated VTG infrared dryers reduce initial moisture content before entering the Thermex Hotflue. Depending on the operating speed, two further VTG gas-heated dyers further reduce the moisture content.

Monforts continuous dyeing ranges offer a quick dyeing and heat setting time in continuous mode of just three minutes, compared with up to 16 hours with conventional cold batch dyeing in discontinuous mode.

The fabric is then washed and if 'wrinkle-free' treatment is specified, the fabric is fed into the 3-chamber Thermex featuring the Monforts MxL process.

The Monforts moist cross linking (MxL) process is eminently suited for shirt and bed sheet fabrics offering non-iron, wrinkle-free properties. It is ideal for continuous use on a hotflue.

A 10-chamber Montex stenter is used for finishing the narrow widths and an 8-chamber Montex for the wide widths. Both stenters feature a padder for softeners or other finishing treatments as specified.
