Streat Instruments showing moisture control App at ITMA
Nov '15
New Zealand based textile measuring instruments producer Streat Instruments will showcase its latest moisture control systems through a Drycom Connect App at ITMA 2015 in hall 3, booth B 114.

“The new Drycom Connect is a dedicated smart-phone and tablet app, which allows operators to view moisture and associated production data in real time, at any time and from anywhere,” it said in a press release.

“The Drycom Connect App is a valuable management tool, empowering users to monitor system data remotely,” Jim Herbison, managing director of Streat Instruments said.

“Having a mobile option provides an increased level of control as well as peace of mind,” Herbison added.

The App can keep track of multiple systems within the plant and can be integrated with data from fibre weight control systems by Streat's sister company Garnett Controls.

According to Streat, drying is one of the most energy intensive operations in textile mills and Streat Drycom empowers processors to reduce energy usage by optimising the drying process.

“Drycom ensures consistent moisture by continuously measuring the moisture of the fibre, yarn, nonwoven web, or other product outputs at the exit of the dryer,” the company stated.

“Drycom automatically controls the energy and or speed of the dryer to maintain the desired level of moisture,” Herbison informed.

“In addition to ensuring consistent moisture content, the productivity gains and energy savings provided by our systems are considerable,” he remarked.

Drycom measures the fibre directly and moisture can then be managed in a manner appropriate to the process, such as targeted moisture application by precision spraying devices.

Experience in all types of natural and man-made fibres has enabled Streat to build a portfolio of application-specific technologies to ensure sustainable production.

Streat further added that hundreds of StreatDrycom systems are already providing users in over 40 countries with the tools they need to operate sustainably, optimise production processes and maximise productivity. (AR)
