Mechanized textile manufacturing depends heavily on ELGi for their reliable, clean, Class ‘0’ oil-free compressed air system to run a range of equipment and utility tools across various processes. ELGi’s superior air quality plays a significant role in precisely controlling valves, cylinders, jet looms, spinning frames, sewing machines, and blowguns. Thus, further ensuring maximized operation, lowest ownership cost & energy efficiency to the production of high-quality textiles, garments, and fabrics.
Over the years, ELGi has sharpened its focus on providing sustainable and energy-efficient solutions to the textile industry. ELGi’s wide range of cost-competitive oil-free air compressors efficiently fulfill the requirements of the textile industry.
ELGi probably has the widest range of compressors to offer to the textile industry as an air compressor manufacturer. Starting from a half HP piston compressor that can be used in some of the smaller textile processing & fabrics units to a 2000 HP centrifugal compressor that can be used in extensive processing and texturizing units. We are also providing Oil-free air solutions for the textile industry with our very own oil-free screw compressors. So, ELGi has a pretty wide range of compressors to meet the end-to-end solutions in the textile production process.
USE OF AIR COMPRESSOR IN TEXTILE INDUSTRY
Compressed air helps manufacturers in the textile industry overcome several challenges. One of these is cost reduction associated with operating and sustaining compressed air tools and support systems. Textile & fabric manufacturers want to improve productivity levels and increase uptime while ensuring that there is no contamination due to the mixing of air/fluid. Another challenge the textile industry aims to overcome is waste production by opting for sustainable solutions.
Compressed air is a significant utility in the Textile industry. Therefore, the design and selection of the suitable compressor is of great significance for delivering high-quality air requirements of the textile industry. A large volume of air is required in cotton textile industries having air-jet looms & in the Polyester yarn industries with a very critical requirement in the PFY valued-added segment such as Texturing. Typically power looms, process house & ginning mills require low air between 30-500 cfm. Denim spinning, medium PFY industries require medium air between 500-1,500 cfm. Large polyester yarn integrated plants, texturing units & integrated cotton textiles usually require more than 2000 cfm.
COMPRESSED AIR IN THE TEXTILE MANUFACTURING IS USED IN:
- Spinning and Ginning Mills
- Air-jet spinning & weaving
- Man-made fiber production – partially oriented yarn (POY) and fully oriented yarn (FOY)
- Texturing units and adding details to materials
- Winding and dying of non-woven materials
- Pneumatic transport for PET chips and Powering cleaning tools
- Treatment of Wastewater
OIL FREE COMPRESSOR FOR TEXTILE INDUSTRY
Most Textile companies rely on reliable, clean Class 0 Oil-Free air for their processes. Using oil-free compressors in delivering the highest quality textiles and fabrics reduces the chances of rejection and optimizes production with less idle time and extended intervals between servicing. Contact with oil (from the air compressors) can leave grease stains on fabric, causing it to darken and damaged/unusable end products. So, it is recommended to choose oil-free compressed air throughout the production process and reduce the risks of rejections.
Oil-free screw air compressors play a pivotal role in ensuring the finished fabric’s quality in the textile industry. The jet looms need dry and oil-free compressed air for the texturing process. A fine nozzle blows compressed air through a wire harness resulting in eddy current formation that helps with the intermingling of yarn to give it shape, elasticity, and prominence.
