High-performance dryer SUPRA-FLOW BH is characterised by its high evaporation capacity, a high energy efficiency, the gentle material transport and an excellent drying homogeneity.
As one of the leading producers of finishing and thermal treatment lines for the nonwovens and textile industry, BRÜCKNER considers its participation in the INDEX trade fair in Geneva as absolutely obligatory. On booth No. 1580 in Hall 1 the visitors have the opportunity to inform themselves from April 4th-7th, 2017 extensively about new products and technologies.
In the nonwovens sector the BRÜCKNER portfolio comprises all types of application systems, thermal treatment lines, dryers as well as cutting and batching units. On the occasion of this year’s INDEX trade fair in Geneva BRÜCKNER wants to present its customers and prospective clients the new developments and improvements in the field of belt dryers, a type of dryer which gained compared to conventional drum dryers more and more acceptance in the last years.
The design of the high-performance dryer SUPRA-FLOW BH, which had been particularly developed for the air-through drying of light hydroentangled nonwovens, has been optimised. This type of dryer is characterised by its particularly high evaporation capacity, a high energy efficiency, the gentle material transport and an excellent drying homogeneity. It is thus clearly more than an alternative for the use of an air-through drum dryer and offers many benefits for the user.
Another new development is the SUPRA-FLOW BE-ADL belt dryer developed for ADL products for thermo-fusion of card nonwovens. In the design of this dryer particular attention was paid to a gentle fabric transport, a high temperature accuracy and a precise air control.
The air circulation in this dryer follows also the air-through principle.
In the last decades BRÜCKNER supplied many lines and dryers for the international nonwovens industry. The final use of the nonwovens is manifold and range from the construction trade to the garment and automobile industry to medical textiles, cleaning or care articles and filter materials. Very different application systems are used for these articles, screen printing and slop-pad coaters, coating machines, flocking units, powder scattering units, spray booths or foam impregnation units or padders. Depending on the purposes BRÜCKNER offers also different dryers matching the customers’ individual needs and processes. BRÜCKNER’s portfolio comprises among other systems also flat dryers with one or several fabric passages, vertical dryer, cylinder dryers, drum dryers, airlaid dryers, infra-red radiation dryers, high temperature dryers and combinations thereof.
Particularly in case of lines with large working widths BRÜCKNER gained a very positive reputation in the last years. Many very large lines are in operation worldwide, the largest has a working width of more than seven meters and has been designed for the heat-setting of geo nonwovens.

Nan Yang Textile Company Ltd ordered a BRÜCKNER stenter for their heat-setting operations. The high drying performance in combination with a very homogeneous air flow and temperature distribution because of the alternatingly arranged thermo zones and the proven split-flow design with separately adjustable upper and lower air were some of the features that convinced the customer. Reproducible finishing results and the robust design ensuring a long service life of the machines are further strong advantages of the BRÜCKNER stenter.
BRÜCKNER finishing line for pigment dyeing of home textiles in Moldova
For many years the companies TIROTEX and BRÜCKNER are cooperating in a successful partnership and TIROTEX already has several BRÜCKNER machines in operation. In the former Soviet Union TIROTEX was the biggest textile state combine company and is now a modern, vertically structured textile producer with more than 1,000 employees and thus one of the most important employers of the autonomous territorial unit Transnistria in Moldova. Due to the high-quality standards and a good sales organisation, the major part of the production is exported. Most of the fabric goes to Western Europe and is sold as high-quality branded article mainly in the field of table and bed linen.
BRÜCKNER is systems supplier in the field of textile machinery and can satisfy the needs of the textile industry in the complete sector of dry finishing, dyeing and coating. They deliver individual components such as padders or coating units but also complete lines for coating and finishing of textiles, technical textiles, nonwovens, glass fibre fabric and floor coverings.
TIROTEX opens up new fields of finishing with this new BRÜCKNER line, which is working to the utmost satisfaction of the customer since one year now. The line is suitable for the conventional finishing of bed and table linen and also home textiles, but is also suitable for pigment dyeing. In front the heart of the line, an eight zone POWER-FRAME stenter of 3.20 m working width, the line is provided additionally with an infra-red dryer and a horizontal nozzle-type pre-dryer with two fabric passages. The modular structure of the line allows the implementation of various technological processes and assures TIROTEX a very high production capacity.
The alternately arranged thermo zones of the dryer, which is typical for BRÜCKNER, and the proven split-flow air circulation system leads to an excellent quality of the results in view of homogeneity of the dyeing along the complete fabric width. Since the commissioning of the line, BRÜCKNER is supporting the customer technologically so that he can use the line completely and in all its varieties. BRÜCKNER’s technologists are available for the customer also in future so that both can benefit also of further options and work together in a continuous cooperation in view of product development and extension of the range of products.
