USE OF AIR COMPRESSOR IN TEXTILE INDUSTRY
Compressed air helps manufacturers in the textile industry, to 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 the mixing of air/fluid. Overcoming waste production by choosing sustainable solutions is another major challenge that the textile industry aims to overcome.
Compressed air is a major utility in the Textile industry, where the design and selection of the compressor are of great significance as compressed air is more or less required at every stage of manufacturing. The cotton textile industries require large volumes of air having Airjet Looms and in the Polyester yarn industries. Compressed air is also highly essential in the PFY valued-added segment such as Texturing.
Typically power looms, process houses, and ginning mills, require low air - between 30-500cfm. Requiring medium air ( between 500-1500cfm) is the denim spinning, medium PFY industries. 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:
Air-jet spinning & weaving
Spinning and Ginning Mills
Texturing units and adding details to materials
Winding and dying of nonwoven materials
Man-made fibre production – partially oriented yarn (POY) and fully oriented yarn (FOY)
Pneumatic transport for PET chips and Powering cleaning tools
Treatment of Wastewater
OIL FREE COMPRESSOR FOR TEXTILE INDUSTRY
Most of the textile industries depend on reliable, clean Class 0 oil-free air for various processes. Using oil-free compressors in delivering the highest quality textiles and fabrics, not only reduces the chances of rejection but also optimizes production with less idle time and extended intervals between servicing. Contact with oil from the air compressors can leave grease stains on the fabric causing it to darken and damage products. So, it is recommended to choose oil-free compressed air throughout the production process to reduce the risk of rejections.
The oil-free screw air compressors play a vital role in the textile industry which can certify the quality of the finished fabric, where jet looms need dry and oil-free compressed air. The fine nozzle will be compressed air blowing a wire harness, and the formation of eddy current, which gives the yarn shape, elastic, and prominence.
