Typical power looms use a low volume of air. Those doing denim spinning or operating medium-size PFY plants need 500 - 1,500 cfm. Large, integrated facilities and texturing units require the highest volume, 2,000 - 40,000 cfm.
Gardner Denver not only builds reciprocating and rotary screw compressors, air treatment systems and automatic monitoring technology to serve all those air requirement ranges, but also continues to develop the latest innovations in compressors to support wise capital investments.
After being dyed, carpeting must be washed and rinsed in clear water. In this process the carpet becomes soaked with water, which must then be extracted gently and economically.
To do so the carpeting is passed over a suction roller with an adjustable suction slot. A vacuum pump connected to this suction roller draws air through the slot, thereby extracting about 80% of the water remaining in the carpet. The steady stream of air ensures a gentle treatment of the material. The continuous flow of water is easily removed and subsequently eliminated along with the operating liquid.
