ATTSU industrial boilers have multiple applications in the textile industry. Steam heating is used throughout the entire production chain of yarns, fabrics and made-up articles, during their manufacture and during their treatment. For example, washing, bleaching, drying, dyeing, fixing, gumming, printing and ironing are some of the textile industry processes that require the steam and high temperatures produced by equipment like those we design and manufacture at ATTSU.
The amount of steam or heat required depends on the process that is being carried out. Dyeing is the process in the textile sector that needs the most steam. Colourfastness in fibres is achieved using various types of machines, baths, autoclaves, etc., immersing the fibres in the dye and bringing the dye up to high temperatures and pressures. The steam that comes from the ATTSU boilers, either as a result of circulating through exchangers or directly, is used in this process. Once the colourfastness has been achieved, the subsequent rinsing and drying processes are also carried out using the heat from the boiler.
Another of the basic points in which heat in the form of steam is applied is thermosetting the interlining. As a result of this technique, fabrics are prevented from shrinking or losing their characteristics when they undergo heat stamping or during dry and wet treatments.
