There is no better match for the bulk of woven fabric than an up-and-down-washer. The EFFECTA is the classical machine for all the washing purposes. On top of that we have all the features needed for special requirements: Double loop, indirect heating, special fabric guiding for sensitive fabric and our famous power sprays, which are not only boosting the washing efficiency, but also your overall performance.
Meander counter flow
Intermediate squeezing for bath separation. Washing is worth nothing if the concentration of contamination is not reduced from bath to bath. Intermediate squeezers ensure that the highly polluted dyeliquor from the previous bath is not getting into the next (cleaner) washing compartment. If the squeezers are not big enough (20 -30 kN), a lot of contaminated water will get through. And if the sueezing unit is built into the washing compartment, they are exposed extremely to the heat, the steam and the chemicals of the process. As a result the rubber coating will suffer above average. To have them in a separate unit in between the washing boxes also makes the maintenance much easier.
Big windows for easy access to the inside of the machine: Your maintenance will like it and keep the machine in a good shape all the times.
Washing mechanics with single loop: The wahing liquor is squeezed through the fabric by the force created in the nip between the roller surface and the fabric. The surface of the fabric additionally is flown against by the turbulence created by the movements of the roller inside the washing chamber. On top of it the surface is rinsed by the water which flows back during the ascent of the febric towards the top roller.
The efficiency of the overall washing process depends very much on the amount of water that will be provided to the top roller. This is the reason, why up-and-down washers normally require a certain speed to work efficiently.
Washing mechanics with double loop. Advantages compared to the single loop: more washing mechanics, more fabric content per wash box. Disadvantage: Accessibility.
Power sprays to increase the washing effect. The spraying device applies the washing liquor onto the surface of the fabric evenly from side to side with a variable power to suit the design of the textile in the best way possible. The result: Higher washing effect- especially at the beginning of a washing process, where most of the contamination is on the surface of the fabric.
With additional steam, the THERMOFLUSH concept is able to heat the fabric up in a very short period of time. This additional temperature again helps cleaning particulary from the core of the fiber.
