In the future, even greater attention will be paid to the recyclability of the end products in the textile chain. In addition, CO2 neutral production is required. Not only manufacturers of classic textiles, but also producers of industrial textiles and textile floor coverings are challenged here.
Intercarpet BV, Aalten/Netherlands, is a major supplier of textile floor coverings in the medium and higher market segments. In 2 factories in the Netherlands, woven carpets, tufted carpets, knitted qualities and artificial grass coverings are produced for export worldwide. In addition to the typical carpet qualities made of all common man-made fibers, wool qualities of the highest quality are also produced from virgin wool. Waste management and energy efficiency are important at the company.
Brückner, a leader in the field of textile dry finishing, has supplied Intercarpet with equipment that includes a stenter with a non-lub ball bearing chain and a Duo-Therm heat treatment oven. The special feature is that the oven is completely electrically heated. The oven is operated with green electricity and thus offers for the first time the possibility of a CO2 neutral production of tufting carpets. All electricity consumers such as fan drives, exhaust air fans or the drives of the fabric transport system are equipped with energy-efficient motors. The horizontal ball bearing chain also ensures lowest drive power due to low rolling friction.
Brückner Textile Technologies GmbH & Co. KG, Leonberg/Germany, offers all common heating systems for its thermal treatment and drying lines. This includes direct or indirect gas heating, thermal oil heating, steam heating in low pressure and high pressure version, the described electric heating or also combinations such as steam heating with additional electric heating. The company designs lines for the textile finishing industry, for the production of nonwovens articles or industrial textiles from event tents to advertising banners, automotive textiles and geotextiles for land reinforcement or road construction.
