Textile industry is known to be a great contributor towards the economical growth of any country. However, it is said that emissions from textile factories are the second biggest cause of pollution in the world.
In light of the above, gas is the cleanest and economical fuel used in a variety of applications namely bleaching, dyeing, temperature and humidity monitoring in storage/ warehouses, drying, singeing, tentering, crabbing, and heat-setting.

Drying

Air required for drying can be heated directly (from fuels, electric resistances and quenching processes) as well as indirectly (via heat exchangers).

Direct air heating using contaminating fuels such as oil, diesel make the air susceptible to contamination (from sulphur compounds, soot, heavy metals and unburnt compounds). On the other hand, using gas meets cleanliness requirements for numerous processes. Gas is also used as a supplementary heat source for other processes e.g. quenching.

Singeing

Also called gassing, this process is used to deliver an even surface by burning off projecting fibres, yarn ends, and fuzz. This is done by passing the yarn/ fibre over a gas flame or heated copper plates at speed necessary to burn the protruding material without harming the material.

Gas powered singeing machines can eliminate pilling of polyester blends, improve the fabric surface and retaining softness as fabric tension is controlled throughout, in accordance with the type of fabric being singed. It can also be used for singeing single yarns, twisted high-grade yarns for voiles, poplins, mercerized knitting yarns, embroidery yarns and sewing threads.

Features:

  1. Gas singeing machines have excellent safety measures. The burners, control systems and auxiliary equipment are constantly monitored by a safety system which automatically turns off the machine in the event of any malfunction.
  2. Its flexibility with individual spindle drive helps to increase efficiency.
  3. It provides flame with high mechanical and thermal energy to quickly burn thermoplastic protruding fibres without any molten beads formation.

Benefits:

  • Smooth fabric surface.
  • Flexibility with individual spindle drive.
  • Best reproducible singeing quality.
  • Clearly distinguishable fabric structure.
  • Reduced soiling tendency.
  • Clear outlines of patterns on printed fabrics.
  • Maintenance free operations.
