With the installation of the first industrial scale Dye-Max spray dyeing line from the innovation company for sustainable production processes, imogo AB, Limhamn/Sweden, commission dyeing company 7H Färgeri AB, Kinnahult/Sweden, is looking to be at the forefront of sustainable fabric production.
The line will have a full working width of 1.8 m with an operating speed of up to 50 m for the reactive dyeing of cellulosic fiber-based fabrics. In addition, it will be capable of carrying out the application of a wide range of fabric pre-treatments and finishing processes, providing the company with flexibility in production. A proven Mini-Max laboratory unit for pre-determining application volumes and color matching will also be delivered as part of the contract.
The line has the potential to slash the use of fresh water, wastewater, energy and chemicals by as much as 90% compared to conventional jet dyeing systems. The application unit of the Dye-Max consists of a closed chamber containing a series of spray cassettes with precision nozzles for accurate and consistent coverage, in combination with the patented imogo Pro Speed valve that controls the volume to be applied.
