New efficient machine for textile pre-treatment and washing processes

NOUS PROJECTES RAM AIGUA SL has successfully carried out a Research and Development project of a "NEW EFFICIENT MACHINE FOR TEXTILE PRE-TREATMENT AND WASHING PROCESSES”, based on the development of a new concept of equipment for the discontinuous washing and pre-treatment of wide fabrics for the textile industry.

THE PROJECT HAS BEEN FINANCED BY THE SPANISH CENTER FOR INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENT (CDTI)

The objective of the project has consisted in the development of a textile pre-treatment and washing system capable of reducing process times, minimizing energy consumption and maximizing performance with respect to existing equipment for discontinuous washing of fabrics. The project has covered the design and dimensioning work, the construction of the first prototype, the performance of functional tests and, finally, the reengineering and final definition of the new equipment. The development carried out has been based on the design and construction of a prototype capable of housing the different systems aimed at improving the process and its productivity. Through the introduction of two vacuum systems based on a suction tube for drying and a suction tube for the forced flow of the bath, together acting with other conventional systems for washing, it has been possible to develop equipment capable of providing a considerable reduction in processing time and a decrease in water and energy consumption.
