Tensionsless drying, shrinking and relaxing
The technically and economically future-oriented design of SANTASHRINK brings a number of application advantages for the operation, which show up in excellent textile results.
SANTASHRINK is used for the shrinkage, relaxation and tensionless drying of tubular or open-width knitted fabrics. The fabric guidance, wether single, double or multiple strand is effected at one treatment level.
Prior to the last treatment chamber, the fabric passes through a steam and vibration section, which helps to enhance the fabric volume and soft fleecy handle.
Nozzles with large volumes of air enable the water to be heated very quick to the evaporation point.
Integrated treatment system for the shrinkage for the Progress version
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.
