Monforts: stenter with optimum energy saving and improved control to Turkey
Drawing on a database of more than 40,000 apparel design patterns and a highly-integrated production structure, İlay Textile, Bursa/Turkey, is a specialist in the provision of rapid and creative solutions to meet the continuously changing needs of the fashion world. The company has just taken delivery of a new Montex stenter range, with a working width of 2 m and 8 TwinAir chambers from the manufacturer of textile machinery A. Monforts Textilmaschinen GmbH & Co. KG, Mönchengladbach/Germany.
This installation provides İlay Textile with much improved control options for all process parameters. With the TwinAir heating chamber system within a Montex stenter, top and bottom airflows can be regulated completely independently of each other, ensuring heat is only applied when and where it is required. The Optiscan balancing system ensures continuous automatic evaluation of the distance between the nozzles and the fabric for highly economical and contact-free drying.
The resulting constant evaporation rate within the stenter ensures optimum energy utilization. In addition, TwinAir chambers feature special paneling for low heat radiation, careful sealing of all connecting positions and chamber access points, and air locks at both the entry and the exit.
