Thies: Spectecular results with
ultra-low dye liquor levels
The iMaster H2O dyeing machine has
been designed for all fabrics and knitted goods to ensure
economic and environmental operation with advanced automation at
low liquor levels as low as 1:3:7 for cotton.
The iMaster H2O is based on 40 years
experience and is specifically engineered to ensure that
textiles plant are able to adhere to the most stringent of
international and local environmental protection regulations.
The machine has been developed to offer
maximum flexibility in terms of materials usage, minimal use of
dyes and with advanced automation to ensure the greatest
efficiency and cost-effectiveness possible.
Available with chamber widths of 525 mm,
1050 mm and 1300 mm, the iMaster H2O has nominal loading
capacities of 100 kg, 200 kg and 250 kg and configurations of up
to eight chambers are available.
There is an adjustable J-box, making the
machine suitable for light to heavy fabrics as well as full and
The minimal rope lifting results in better
shrinkage control and less rope curling for elastic fabrics such
as cotton and Lycra. Running properties cover the range of 90 to
500 m/min, and the dyeing, bleaching and rinsing is carried out
with extremely low nozzle pressure, thus giving excellent fabric
An innovative system of kier pressure
regulation reduces compressed air consumption, and there is no
waiting time for venting the machine, which can be drained at
temperatures starting from 92oC.
It is important to note that fabric
speeds, nozzle pressure and plaiter are all automatically
synchronised, and a new smart dose system has been developed for
significant improvements on levelness and dosing time. A liquor
turbulence protector allows further reduction of dye liquor: The
RINSEtronic system automates the rinsing procedure, and there is
also an automatic filter system.
