Only 10 meters of space available and yet the requirements of a full continue drum washing machine, only 300 meters per hour production volume and yet the need to wash woolen woven fabric in a material-friendly and cost-covering way. The MENZEL COMPACTFLOW small lot washing machine offers all the advantages of the large OPTISPLASH drum washing machine with minimal space requirements.
COMPACTFLOW stands for two fully tension-controlled screen drum units with backfill, rotors and squeezing units. With an overall length of only two meters, COMPACTFLOW assures maximum flexibility. It is suitable for wide washing of woven and knitted fabrics, even for high-quality articles made of silk, wool and elastic knitted fabrics made of microfiber and can be used for washing after dyeing, degumming or washing after digital printing.
Menzel PAD FLEX Pad Roll pretreatment systems include equipment and accessories for one of the most proven semi-continuous bleaching processes. Do the requirements for absorbency, dye absorption and whiteness of the bleached cotton exceed the possibilities of a KKV bleaching machine? Is the available space for a steam-bleaching line too small or is such a large unit oversized for your lot lengths or entire production? MENZEL PAD FLEX - bleaching systems are an excellent possibility to produce top qualities, even under adverse initial conditions.
After saturating the raw material with bleach decoction or desizing liquor, the material is heated to the ideal reaction temperature by means of quick steamers. Subsequently, it is rolled up and dwelt at a defined humidity in a heatable and temperature-controlled portable dwell chamber. At the end of the bleaching process, the fabric is moved directly out of the chamber and washed out in a COMPACTFLOW small lot washer.
Menzel Pad Roll systems are fully automated, the liquor volume is minimal to be up to current standards. Even the dosing is automated precisely, resulting in less accumulated residual liquors. The perfect interaction of highly accurate dosing, automation as well as temperature and process control allows chemical formulations to be significantly reduced with maximum flexibility. This applies regardless of whether you want to use hot bleaching, desizing, boiling off or hot stain removal.
You want your textiles to have the special gloss of mercerization or leaching, but a large-scale plant is not profitable because of the costs for infrastructure, operation and investment? You still want to keep the benefit for your product in-house?
Or are you a contract manufacturer who achieves added value from small batches?
Thanks to its low investment costs and compact design, the Menzel MINIMERC is the ideal system for finishing finish small and medium textile production quantities economically.
The required space for MINIMERC is similar to a conventional jigger and operates on the roll-to-roll principle.
From unwinding through mercerizing to rewinding, there is constant control of fabric tension. The fabric passes through the process in several passages, during which it is mercerized and stabilized. Each step is monitored continuously and controlled automatically by the OPTICONTROL process control system.
