USE OF AIR COMPRESSOR IN TEXTILE INDUSTRY
Compressed air helps manufacturers in the textile industry overcome several challenges. One of these is cost reduction associated with operating and sustaining compressed air tools and support systems. Textile and fabric manufacturers want to improve productivity levels and increase uptime while ensuring that there is no contamination due to mixing of air/fluid. Another challenge that the textile industry aims to overcome is waste production by opting for sustainable solutions.
Compressed air is a major utility in the Textile industry where the design and selection of the compressor are of great significance as the compressed air is more or less required at every stage of manufacturing. Large volumes of air are required in cotton textile industries having Airjet Looms and in the Polyester yarn industries. Compressed air is also very critical in the PFY valued-added segment such as Texturing.
Typically power looms, process house and ginning mills require low air between 30-500 cfm. Denim spinning, medium PFY industries require medium air between 500-1,500 cfm. Large polyester yarn integrated plants, texturing units & integrated cotton textiles may require anywhere between 2,000-40,000 cfm.
COMPRESSED AIR IN THE TEXTILE MANUFACTURING ARE USED IN:
Spinning and Ginning Mills
Air jet spinning & weaving
Man-made fibre production – partially oriented yarn (POY) and fully oriented yarn (FOY)
Texturing units and adding details to materials
Winding and dying of nonwoven materials
Pneumatic transport for PET chips and Powering cleaning tools
Treatment of Wastewater
OIL FREE COMPRESSOR FOR TEXTILE INDUSTRY
Most Textile companies rely on reliable, clean Class 0 oil free air for these processes. Using oil free compressors in delivering the highest quality textiles and fabrics that not only reduces the chances of rejection but also optimises production with less idle time and extended intervals between servicing. Contact with oil (from the air compressors) can leave grease stains on fabric causing it to darken and damaged/unusable end products. So, it is recommended to choose oil free compressed air throughout the production process and reduce risks of rejections.
In the textile industry, oil free screw air compressors play a pivotal role which can guarantee the quality of the finished fabric where jet looms need dry and oil free compressed air, the fine nozzle will be compressed air blowing wire harness, and the formation of eddy current, which gives the yarn shape, elastic and prominent.
