Eco finishing solutions for knits on show in Shanghai

Benninger, a leading company in the development of 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 that is due to be held in Shanghai, China, from 16-20 June.

According to the manufacturer, despite the tremendous efforts of machine designers to reduce the liquor ratio, finishing of knitted goods in jet dyeing machines still requires large amounts of water and therefore also a great deal of energy.

Benninger has developed and implemented a continuous open width finishing process that is said to offer 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 company reports. Benninger’s Trikoflex bleaching and washing plants and the Benninger Küsters DyePad are said to perfectly suit this type of application.

Trikoflex

Washing on Benninger’s high efficiency Trikoflex drum washer with mechanically-assisted front and back washing is said to reduce the water consumption by more than 40% in comparison to conventional washers.

At the same time the energy required to heat up the washing water is reduced. Additionally Benninger’s Trikoflex has been specifically developed for tension sensitive textiles.

Benninger-Küsters DyePad Basic

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.

With the CPB dyeing process the reactive dye is fixed at room temperature. With controlled dyeing conditions plus the latest developments in the dye itself, this modern CPB dyeing system can be used on cellulose fibers for woven fabrics as well as knits, the company reports.
