Benninger, a leading company developing technologically advanced textile finishing and tire cord solutions, will exhibit its Trikoflex drum washer and a Benninger-Küsters DyePad Basic at ITMA Asia + CITME trade fair, Shanghai, China to be held from June 16 to 20, 2014. Despite efforts by machine designers to reduce the liquor ratio, finishing of knitted goods in jet dyeing machines still requires large amounts of water and therefore, a great deal of energy.
Benninger has developed and implemented a continuous open width finishing process, that offers water and energy savings. This process makes it possible to lower CO2 emissions by nearly two thirds in comparison to the exhaust dyeing processes. The Trikoflex bleaching and washing plants and the Küsters DyePad are said to perfectly suit this type of application.
Washing on Benninger’s high efficiency Trikoflex drum washer with mechanically-assisted front and back washing reduces water consumption by more than 40 per cent compared to conventional washers. Additionally the Trikoflex has been specifically developed for tension sensitive textiles.
The DyePad Basic has been especially designed to suit the needs of Asian markets. It focuses on easy handling two swimming rollers ensure a maximum deflection potential and allow dyeing of knit and woven fabrics without any restrictions.
Benninger operates as a full-service solutions provider. The company plans and implements technologically optimised and individually designed process and system solutions.
