With an extended design with single/double padder for the squeezing, hydro-extraction and impregnation, SANTASHRINK Progress is the most required Dryer in the market.

Santashrink Super Jumbo textile relax dryer

Integrated treatment system for the shrinkage

The standard version of the SANTASHRINK series serves as the basis for the SANTASHRINK Progress machine which is usually equipped with three or more drying chambers.

Pin-frame entry for width stretching and wet-compacting as preparation of the fabrics prior to drying offers an unequalled quality gains. The equalizing frame, which features a needle chain, is the most important part of the extended inlet. The total length of 5,345 m includes a horizontal swiveling section of 4,50 m, which permits gentle opening and overstretching of fabric. The inlet can be of very simple design with a centering device and a feeding support. In general a dewatering-padder is provided and, in most cases, also an impregnating padder.
