With requirements for greater energy efficiency and lower carbon emissions becoming more and more prominent, Trützschler Nonwovens focused on new and efficient drying technologies. The Streamliner (in the picture), introduced during the last ITMA show, is a spiral-shaped drum dryer with highest evaporation capacities. The model is best used in nonwoven lines producing extremely moist and high density nonwovens – it passed the acid test in a production line last year. Another pillar of the dryer and oven program is the re-designed multi-drum dryer. The new, modular model is optimised in several respects which result in significant reductions in both thermal and electrical energy consumption.
Trützschler Man-Made Fibers brings the small but technologically challenging segment of short staple fibers into focus. One of the most important quality requirements of short fibers with a length of under 3 to 6 mm is absolute length uniformity – Trützschler’s staple fiber technology fulfil this requirement for both standard and high-performance polymers. Here the technologies presented come to full circle since short staple fibers are often blended with other fiber material for typical wet-laid products such as nonwovens wallpaper, high-quality tea bags and battery separators.
In the field of technical nonwovens, Trützschler Card Clothing is offering new metallic wires for roller cards application on doffer and condenser. Especially for medium and coarse fibres, e.g. for geo-textiles needle-punched webs, new and already field-tested tooth geometries are available, providing enhanced process stability and low maintenance.
