Steam is very widely applied in the textile industry. It is commonly used in many subsectors and processes: manufacturing fabrics, manufacturing textile products…
Steam is used to wash, dye, bleach and iron fabrics.
Steam is used to provide colour fastness when dyes are applied to fibres. The tanks in which the fabric is bathed in dye are heated in stages. The steam circulates through the exchangers.
High temperature steam is also used to print patterns on fabrics in machines designed for that purpose.
The amount of steam that each machine needs (dryers, compactors, mangles, etc.) must be calculated.
ATTSU manufactures and installs industrial steam boilers for various companies in the Spanish and international textile sector. It adapts the most appropriate design to each need in each case.
