New tumble action DynAir relaxation dryer for knits

 

New DynAir relaxation dryer introduces new ‘tumble’ action module to ensure improved shrinkage and handling for knitted fabrics plus, for the first time, Monforts integrated heat recovery system.

A. Monforts Textilmaschinen has introduced a new DynAir relaxation dryer for knitted fabrics offering a new continuous ‘tumbling’ action to provide improved performance, shrinkage and handling. Additionally, Monforts has announced that its integrated heat recovery system can be fitted to all new DynAir units.

Whilst retaining its ‘sinowave’ fabric flow through the DynAir’s chambers, a tumble action is introduced by vibrating the chambers upper and lower transport belt. These are both synchronised to ensure the optimum tumbling effect. The tumbling effect loosens the crossing points of the knitted fabric generating further improved shrinkage and handling.

The number of nozzle fingers within each chamber has also been increased from 16 to 24. This, together with the installation of more powerful fan motors, offers increased drying capacity and evaporation.

Integrated heat recovery system

As part of an on-going effort to reduce energy consumption within the textile industry, Monforts is prepared to fit its integrated heat recovery system on all new DynAir units. The system comprises a compact, air-to-air heat exchanger, which is installed within the roof structure of the dryer.

The heat exchanger uses energy from the exhaust gas to preheat up to 60% of the incoming fresh air entering the dryer. Depending on production conditions, this provides energy savings of 10-25% and a rapid payback period.

The integrated system in a space saving rectangular design eliminates the need for heavy support and access structures above the stenters and reduces the amount of ductwork required.
