BRÜCKNER presents solutions for
efficient energy saving in finishing processes
In dyeing processes the dyeing padder, the radiation dryer
and the Hotflue considerably influence the dyeing result. In the
field of pre-dryers, the systems supplier BRÜCKNER offers the
particularly efficient infrared gas pre-dryer POWER-INFRATHERM.
The innovative technology concept of the infrared predryer
ensures reproducible and homogeneous dyeing results. POWER-INFRATHERM
can be used in addition flexibly in thermosol processes and for
the finishing of technical textiles.
Immediate readiness for production and high reliability
BRÜCKNER uses in this infrared gas radiator special metal
fibre burners. Within a few seconds after the start they reach
the preselected process temperature with absolute uniformity
across the complete fabric width. This guarantees constant and
migration-free drying conditions for the complete batch. In case
of an unplanned fabric stop, the radiators cool just as rapidly
so that the fabric web cannot burn. The special gas/air mixture
preparation concept used by BRÜCKNER allows - depending on the
requirements - a continuous adjustment in the infrared
temperature range between 500 °C and 900 °C.
POWER-INFRATHERM - innovative infrared
Crease-free fabric passage and uniform migration-free
The compact modular construction with a short vertical fabric
passage ensures a crinkle-free cloth run. The large-volume
exhaust air lock ensures in addition the uniform, migration-free
drying. Several radiator modules can be arranged above each
other, which allows to plan the dyeing range specifically for
the different articles.
No risk of stripes formation
The individual segments used for BRÜCKNER's POWER-INFRATHERM
radiators row have the form of a parallelogram. The metal studs
between the segments are turned by 45° to the direction of the
fabric run. On the opposite radiator row the turn is to the
other side providing for a complete cover of the radiation. The
drying intensity is absolutely homogeneous and constant across
the width of fabric and the risk of stripes can be excluded.
No undefined fresh air leakage
The POWER-INFRATHERM radiation dryer is provided with a
closed housing. Fresh air only enters through the lower fabric
slot, but not in the area of radiators or doors. Undesired entry
of fresh air with detriment to the colouring can thus be
Low maintenance and long service life
These radiators stand out for their backfire-proves and their
resistance against mechanical shock and spray water. Another
important feature is their long service life and low
New generation of high-capacity
POWER-SHRINK sanforizing lines.
POWER-SHRINK: High-capacity generation of sanforizing
Sanforizing is the last process in the textile finishing
chain. The finishing specialist BRÜCKNER reworked completely
this process and developed a new generation of high-capacity
sanforizing lines which are officially certified under the
SANFOR label. The aim of the sanforizing process are the
minimization of residual shrinkage, the stabilization of the
fabric structure, the final surface treatment of the fabric or
the improvement of the fabric hand. Typical end products are
fabrics for shirts or trousers, home textiles, working clothes,
tent canvas or protective sheathing.
Performance data of POWER-SHRINK sanforizing line:
Best residual shrinkage of 1 - 0 % due to the
high-tech drive concept and rollers with load cells.
A production output increased by 20 to 40 percent
due to optimized geometric proportions at the rubber belt line.
Uniform and constant shrinkage thanks to
technically sophisticated shrinkage control.
The line meets the highest requirements regarding
fabric quality and is registered under the sanforized label.
Reproducible fabric quality (all machine
parameters are automated / PLC controlled, a styles management
