Innovative non-contact spray finishing
Weko fluid application systems are used for non-contact moistening/conditioning and finishing of continuously moving webs in minimum application processes.
In times of increasing scarce resources, sustainability has become a central topic in the nonwovens and textile industry. Finally, the finishing should be as material and resource-saving as possible, yet effective. The demand of specialized and individual finishings e.g., of products to fight microbial (viral or bacterial) impact is growing. Future products will be added with those functions in much more industrial sections than today – not only in medical and hygienic industry. More flexibility in production is required while consumption of chemicals, water and heat energy becomes a bigger point in terms of sustainability and optimizing the margins.
Based on this principle, Weko fluid application systems are used worldwide for non-contact moistening/conditioning and finishing of continuously moving webs in minimum application processes. Single or both side finishing, equipping each side with different functions, is possible. This results in a wide range of possibilities for the producers to use the machine efficiently and to equip their own products in a sustainable way. By controlling the precise pre-dosing only, the required amount of chemicals is applied to the web.
Potential savings potentials result from the use of
water up to 70%
use of additives up to 60%
drying energy up to 80%.
