Bruckner textile finishing lines help prune energy costs

ECO-HEAT back-pack heat recovery system by BRÜCKNER
For 6 decades the family-run company BRÜCKNER with domicile and production site in Germany is specialized with great success on tailor-made lines and complete systems for textile finishing.Due to the continuously increaseing energy prices BRÜCKNER took some years ago the right decision and invested in the energy efficiency and productivity of their lines. Energy saving becomes also in the Central and South American countries more and more an important issue in order to remain competitive also in future. The Texpasa group in Guatemala bought some time ago the first heat recovery unit for this market and registers since then very good results.

The Texpasa group was founded in 1992 in Guatemala. Today the main office is in Charlotte, N.C., USA. In the last few years, Texpasa has developed to be one of the best manufacturers of knit fabrics in tubular or open-width form in the region .

With a production capacity of about 350.000 pounds per week, Texpasa strives to be their customers number one resource for knit fabrics. Typical fabrics include 2,and 3-end fleece, various piques, lacostes, ribs, jerseys and thermals.In addition, Texpasa recently began producing synthetic performance fabrics. The high-tech machinery and many years of experience in the textile industry allow Texpasa to offer their customers, products of a very high quality.

In order to extend their production in Guatemala, the Texpasa group looks for a powerful partner. Since the explosively increasing energy costs become noticeable also in the countries of Central and South America it was for Texpasa very important to find a solution to save as much energy as possible and if possible with increased output.

A perfectly tuned systems concept made by BRÜCKNER met these high requirements and was set into operation to the full satisfaction of the customer. The line comprises two POWER-PAD padders for squeezing and impregnating, one 8 zone POWER-FRAME stenter with patented split-flow air circulation system and one integrated ECO-HEAT back-pack heat recovery unit.

Thanks to this newly developed ECO-HEAT heat recovery system by BRÜCKNER, the Texpasa group is now able to save up to 33 % of energy, depending on the process with clearly higher production capacity and improved fabric quality. The ECO-HEAT system uses the heat of the exhaust air to heat the fresh air which is led to the dryer. Due to their handy dimensions the heat exchanger modules can be withdrawn without problems for cleaning and re-inserted afterwards. No special tools or auxiliaries are required.

In addition a unique filter system in front of the heat exchanger leads to a considerable reduction of the cleaning cycles. For Texpasa the line pays back within less than 1.5 years.

The efficient POWER-FRAME stenters have been designed by BRÜCKNER's engineers specially for the drying and heat-setting of high-quality knitted fabric. They offer clear advantages for our customers, particularly for the drying and heat-setting of high-quality woven and knitted
