Cost pressure due to increasing energy costs as well as the continuously growing importance of internal environmental and climate protection are challenging ever more manufacturing companies. Therefore, within its Textile Solutions, CHT has developed solution approaches for manufacturing companies of the textile value chain.
The application specialists work together with the customers to develop individual savings potentials that are specifically tailored to the production facilities and requirements. Thus – depending on the process, fabric and machine – energy savings of up to 30% can be achieved with the use of innovative textile auxiliaries, dyes/pigments and the corresponding process optimization from CHT Germany GmbH, Tübingen/Germany. In addition, the numerous concepts and tailor-made products can minimize water consumption or shorten the process time.
Energy-efficient cold bleaching instead of pad-steam bleaching processes in continuous pre-treatment and the 4Success process for energy-efficient and resource-saving pre-treatment and dyeing of cotton, for example, help to save energy. Likewise, the use of polymer binders such as Arristan CPU, which do not require energy-intensive fixation, saves energy.
Another option is efficient pre-treatment with the new polymer technology CPT (Comb Polymer Technology) to achieve good cleaning effects even with low liquor ratios and thus less water to heat up. To save costs for energy-consuming heating, there is also the gentle low-temperature fixation in the easy-care finishing. The OrganIQ EMS Jeans system also enables jeans finishing with the latest nebulization technology and the lowest liquor ratios with a reduced application temperature compared to standard processes.
With Time Boost, a process for fast polyester dyeing processes, not only significant energy but also time savings are achieved by omitting pre-washing and by shortening heating and migration times. Short Cut also leads to shorter process times when dyeing polyamide. To avoid cost-intensive intermediate drying, the Screen-2-Screen with Printperfekt S2S is available, which facilitates printing in a wet-on-wet technology.
Furthermore, CHT offers special finishing and coating products that support minimal application systems such as spraying, kiss rolling or instable foam coatings. In addition to numerous other products, the company also offers its customers smart digital tools to optimally support process optimizations. For example, the "Bezaktiv Soaping Advisor" calculation program within the CHT Textile Dyes app can be used to evaluate and improve dyeing and soaping processes in a simple and target-oriented way.
Energy reductions can therefore be effectively implemented in various textile manufacturing processes and enable major cost savings. At the same time, the process solutions make a significant contribution to environmental and climate protection.
