Mexican textile firm installs Monforts Montex 6500 stenter
May '17
Tizayuca Textil Vuva SA de CV, a vertically integrated producer of textiles located at Tizayuca, Mexico, has installed a Monforts Montex 6500 stenter equipped with a heat recovery system. The company has been running a direct energy usage comparison with the Montex 5000 stenter installed a decade earlier, but which has no heat recovery system.

The comparison charts reveal that the heat recovery system is saving the company up to 20 per cent on gas consumption. Both of the machines are equipped with the Monforts Exxotherm indirect gas heating system, heating technology that avoids any yellowing of the fabric, which had proved very effective on the first installation.

The Monforts 6500 unit is also equipped with a Compactomat 6000 system for the control of over-feeding and cloth weight integrated within the machine. The Exxotherm indirect gas heating system incorporates a gas-fired heat exchanger that eliminates the negative effects of combustion gases on fabrics, and thereby, removes combustion related problems such as ‘yellowing’ or colour changes.

This is particularly the case in the treatment of polyamide and elastane based fabrics, which form a large part of Tizayuca Textil’s output. Hot combustion air is fed from the gas burner through an isolated heat exchanger and passed into the stack via the independent exhaust duct, to ensure that no combustion gases come into contact with the fabric.

Tizayuca Textil co-owner Salomon Romano said, “About 80 per cent of our production here is for the domestic market and we produce everything including knitting, nylon, cotton, and polycotton. We have five stenters, of which the two most recent installations are Monforts machines. We were very happy with the first Monforts machine, the Exxotherm system being especially advantageous, and the good results encouraged us to invest in the 6500 with Exxotherm.”

“This second installation has the integrated heat recovery system, and so we have been able to compare gas energy usage between the two machines. Our supplies are natural gas from the public utility supplier, and so we can see very clearly the savings we are making whilst using the same production process. We are now giving serious consideration to the possibility of installing a heat recovery system on the first Monforts stenter,” he added. (GK)
