The joint venture Oerlikon Barmag Huitong Engineering, Yangzhou, Jiangsu/China, part of the Oerlikon Manmade Fibers segment, of technology group Oerlikon Management AG, Pfäffikon/Switzerland, recently commissioned a polycondensation system which feeds a polyester industrial yarn system.
Oerlikon Barmag Huitong Engineering installed the polycondensation system, which has a capacity of 600 tons/day, at Jiangsu Solead New Material Group Co. Ltd. Yixing City, Jiangsu/China. This will be connected to an Oerlikon Barmag industrial yarn spinning system with a 350 ton/day capacity. The new systems will be deployed to produce predominantly high-tenacity (HT) yarns for use in agricultural, infrastructure, transport, security and outdoor applications. These systems can be used to manufacture yarns with up to 3 x 6,600 dtex of high yarn quality with simultaneously high production efficiency. Furthermore, low-shrinkage yarns for coating textiles and so-called LDI yarns (HT, low-denier industrial yarns) for industrial sewing yarns, among other things, are also manufactured.
In addition to the polycondensation system, the extrusion equipment and spinning system, solutions provider Oerlikon Manmade Fibers is also supplying the complete engineering.
