The first step to continuous finishing is made at SCOUT pad-steam bleaching ranges, which are suitable for scouring any cellulosic fabric, producing a constant and homogeneous base product for later dyeing or printing.
Pad-steam bleaching achieves a high degree of white with less production costs compared to the traditional discontinuous over-flow technology, amongst many other advantages such as;
- High reproducibility,
- Product homogenity (no tailing),
- Low fiber loss (no enzymatic bio-polishing),
- Shiny and improved fabric surface (no pilling),
- Low water, steam and power consumption.
SCOUT bleaching ranges are designed in modules and can be specially setup to meet requirements of any dye house or printer
from 5 [t/day] to 25 [t/day].
With our GALAXY, continuous pad-steam bleaching is also possible in tubular form. Using the same principles and know-how applied on our open-width technologies, we are able to achieve high production and outstanding fabric quality with low processing costs.
GALAXY ranges are available in setups from 5 [t/day] to 20 [t/day] for narrow or body size widths in half or full white. Perfect for the production of seamless T-shirts or underwear.
OBA COMPARTMENT (open-width and tubular)
The optical brightener compartment (OBA) can be added at the end of any SCOUT or GALAXY pad-steam bleaching range in order to apply high or medium affinity optical brighteners without contaminating the main (bleaching) machine.
