Monforts Eco Applicator gains wider acceptance

Monforts Eco Applicator has been highly successful since its introduction, both integrated into new finishing lines or retro-fitted to existing ones.

One thing that is certain, is that energy prices are only going to continue to increase. Monforts Eco Applicator ‘bucks’ this trend for woven and knitted fabrics with retro fitting to existing finishing lines.

In many textile mills globally, the cost of running integrated manufacturing lines – especially those for fabric finishing that can involve numerous sequences of heating and subsequent drying – is now eclipsing the cost of paying people to operate them.

As a consequence, any process that can be introduced to reduce energy costs is likely to find itself rapidly welcomed by the market. This has certainly proved the case with the Monforts Eco Applicator, which has been highly successful since its introduction, both integrated into new finishing lines or retro-fitted to existing ones.

The Eco Applicator is a soft coating unit which eliminates the need for conventional wet-on-wet padders, instead employing trough and roller techniques to apply the required amount of liquid/coating to the fabric.

The unit itself does not actually save the energy, but by applying only the precise amount of functional finish, ensures the subsequent drying time is shorter – in some cases dramatically so.

While being widely market-proven on woven and denim fabrics, major knitting manufacturers are now also reaping the benefits the Eco Applicator provides.Knitted fabrics must never be stretched and need to be treated in a relaxed state.

The Montex 8500 stenter with vertical or horizontal chain return incorporates a TwinAir nozzle system that ensures the relaxed fabric is kept at a suitable height in between the upper and lower nozzle system, allowing for the fabric’s ‘bowing’.

Similarly, the Eco Applicator for knits is fitted with an advanced guidance system specially-adapted to the needs of delicate treatments and eliminating any possible ‘curling’ of the fabric edges prior to entering the stenter.

Compared with a padder system, where the initial moisture content of the fabric entering the stenter is 60per cent, with the Eco Applicator it is reduced to 40 per cent and the knit fabric also has the shortest fabric path from the unit into the stenter.

Eco Applicator’s versatility also allows mills to apply finishes to just one side of the fabric, or both, and even to apply separate finishes to each side, or to specific areas of a fabric, for endless possibilities, whether treating wovens, denim or delicate knits.
