Continuous Multi Chamber Rope Washing Machine
The rope processing equipment that the market has to offer so far, has rather limited the application of this technology. This applies to both the process sequences and the fabric that could be treated.
Rope processing is a technique that was used even before the arrival on the scence of modern continuous washing rangs. A few years ago the main corcern was to conserve water and energy, with this new machine the main emphasis is on a wider range of application. In particular, the aim was to carter to those fabrics that could not be treated on conventional rope processing machines, owing to their tendency to increase, e.g. closely woven fabric.
Another major consideration was the futher reduction of lengthways tension in the fabric. Nowadays, in knitted fabric finishing this is a very important point, with a view to reducing residual shrinkage.
