CHTC Fong´s Industries presented the latest new technology together with its subsidiaries. The company displayed the latest innovative and flagship products namely FONG´S, THEN, GOLLER, MONFORTS, MONFORTS FONG´S and XORELLA (Hall 2, Booth F109).
Then Airflow® Synergy 8
The latest generation of the THEN AIRFLOW® SYNERGY 8 is the best example of how to make good things even better. It is well known that the liquor ratio achieved with the THEN AIRFLOW principle up to date has not been beaten. The same counts for the versatility of this superior machine. With the latest development the energy consumption is further reduced. Every tube now has an individual frequency controlled blower with less installed power. All the other advantages of the THEN AIRFLOW SYNERGY series remain unchanged, which leads to shorter cycling times and substantial savings in water as well as high reproducibility and smooth fabric guiding. Breaking the barrier of loading capacity, the model extends up to 12 tubes with individual control, suitable for various kinds of fabrics with better flexibility, quality and ergonomics.
Then Supratec Ltm
Over the years many improvements were made to make the THEN-AIRFLOW® technology even more efficient. However, in times of shorter batches in fabric dyeing the main requirement is flexibility and the fabric weight range. FONG´S EUROPE GMBH is presenting at ITMA 2015 a dyeing machine that can accomplish to handle a whole range of fabrics; from sensitive products up to heavy weights. It´s called ´THEN SUPRATEC LTM´. The combined knowledge and experience of FONG´S and THEN led to a series of new and groundbreaking ideas: The ´THEN SUPRATEC LTM´ is a hydraulic long tube dyeing machine with a variable liquor ratio from short in the semi dry mode up to long in the wet mode.
Variable angle, defined plaiting without any winch and a liquor ratio which is setting new standards in long tube dyeing are just a few features. The machine is able to dye woven and knitted fabrics, made of natural, man-made fibres and blends. The weight range goes from 25 g/lm up to 380 g/lm. Its high flexibility in terms of liquor ratio and the variable angle of the kier results in considerable savings in additives, water and energy. The current speed range goes from 80 to 600 m/min ´ depending on the fabric type.
Some additional features are:
- Liquor ratio 1:5.5 up to 1:15 depending on the variable angle of the kier
- Low power consumption due to variable kier angle
- Up to three jets per tube with up to 1,000 m each
- Up to four tubes with coupling
- Variable nozzles
Then Automatic Chemical Dispensing System (Chd)
THEN's chemical dispensing system CHD was completely redesigned as a compact system to be installed at the most suitable position in the dye house. Based on a patented distribution system and part of the Colour Kitchen Manager (CKM) in numerous installations; it is applied for fully automatic metering and transport of chemicals from storage tanks to dyeing machines.
The CKM, designed as a modular system, which can be enlarged is handling weighing, dissolving, storing, transporting, dispensing of liquids and powdery auxiliaries, dyestuff and auxiliaries.
The main purpose of the CHD is a fast and accurate delivery of small and big amounts of chemicals to every target in the system and the elimination of mistakes caused by the human factor. The automatic dosing and dispensing for best reproducibility from batch to batch is maintained by a fast high-end extrusion pump in combination with compressed air transportation.
By this the low liquor ratio and rinse water consumption will be achieved as the piping is not fille
