Oil Free Screw & Scroll Air Compressors for Textile Industry

The textile industry has begun to pick up after experiencing a cold winter for several years. Domestic and external demand are growing at the same time, and there is even a need to expand the scale. As the second largest power source after electricity, compressed air has been used in all aspects of the textile industry. More and more textile processes have been completed using pneumatic technology. It is currently widely used in fiber material transportation, rubber roller pressurization, Mobile work stations, jet air processing, jet automatic control technology, cleaning parts, etc.

What are the applications of compressed air in the textile industry?

Air-jet looms are the equipment that consumes the largest amount of air in the textile industry. At the same time, air-coated yarn machines, texturing machines, etc. also need compressed air; the drying and transportation of slices in the chemical fiber industry also require compressed air solution.


The main production body of air-jet looms uses compressed air as the weft insertion carrier, which has strict requirements on the quality and pressure of compressed air. Its working principle is to use air as the weft insertion medium, use the jetted compressed air flow to generate friction and traction on the weft yarn, bring the weft yarn through the shed, and achieve the purpose of weft insertion through the jet generated by the air jet.


In order to ensure the normal operation of the air-jet loom, the quality of the compressed air used as a means of weft insertion is extremely important. The quality of the compressed air directly affects the quality of the product.


Textile industry compressed air quality standards and solutions

If water, oil, dust and other impurities appear in the compressed air during the production process, it will cause obvious pollution to the materials, which is a very serious problem. The guarantee of compressed air quality is not only for the stable operation of weft insertion, but also to improve the hygienic conditions of production.


Industrial compressed air solutions are needed in many links in textile production, but each link has different requirements for compressed air quality. However, as long as the air source of the air-jet loom is met, it can basically meet all the air needs of the entire production line. Textile products require clean, oil-free air, so oil-free screw compressors are more common in textile mills.


In the post-processing equipment, it is necessary to configure precision filters and adsorption dryers for purification. To purify solid impurities such as water and dust, the pressure dew point must reach -20°C and the solid particles must be less than 1 μm. Stable production and minimum harm to equipment and products.
