SCOPE OF PROCESS HOUSE
A one stop solution for wet process technology
Desizing is the process of removing the sized material from the warp yarns after the textile fabric is woven. The advantage of following this process is that the desizing happens on the continuous basis instead of following the old batching process where the production process was interrupted after a few hours.
The major proportion of the size consists of starch, wax and tallow. Desizing is the term usually restricted to the process of removal of starch from the fabric. It is the first wet processing textile technology employed to remove the size material from the fabric.
Benefits of desizing:
One of the main reasons behind desizing is to remove the size materials from the fabric. We do desizing also to achieve the following:
To make the textile material more absorbent.
To increase the luster of the fabric.
To perfect action of scouring and bleaching.
To make the textile materials suitable for subsequent processes.
To establish continues production without any interruption.
Irrespective of the sizing agent used this process does impregnation of the fabric as the desizing agent is applied, thus allowing the desizing agent to degrade or solubilise the size material. Finally it washes out the degradation from the products. This is a classic technology involving the enzymatic desizing process. This is how the wet processing with enzymes takes place. It reduces the molecular weight of the starch substance by rendering it in the water soluble substance leaving enough space for it to be washed off from the fabric. The process has an automated chemical applicator chamber where the chemicals or the enzymes are added with an utmost precision as per the fabrics demand. Three fresh water boxes are employed in this desizing process.
Antique's bleaching Style
At Antique, we bleach textiles with the aim that the fibers are converted so that the color substances present in the fibers are converted into uncolored material after which, we alter them in a way so they can be washed out.
Before the actual bleaching of cotton takes place in the alkaline range an acidic demineralization is highly recommended. Oday- commonly known as raw cotton has a large bandwith in terms of containing parts of calcium, magnesium and iron and these impurities are a part of the soil where the cotton grows. Demineralization helps in washing away the impurities in the cotton.
Why we bleach?
At Antique we do bleaching:-
To use complex agents to break the strong metal bonds into water soluble ferric chloride so that the unwanted impurities are washed away.
To increase the degree of whiteness.
To maintain the degree of whiteness to achieve stability over the entire web width of the fabric.
Bleaching with Hydrogen Paroxide
Using hydrogen paroxide holds an outstanding position and plays a superior part of bleaching cotton and regenerative cellulose fibres. We use many products such as alkalis, low form emitting tensiles or tensides, wetting agents and other complex agents to achieve the perfection in bleaching. We provide indirect steam heat in the wash boxes to avoid the iron impurities coming from the steam pipeline. A complete machinery construction is placed in Stainless Steel 316 to avoid any corrosion impurities to enter the system.
This is an automation technology employed to add the chemicals for bleaching. This is done to achieve intensive liquor exchange and uniform distributions of chemicals used. This helps complete penetration of chemicals in every core of the fabric giving a consistent result over the entire web width of the fabric. Ecomax also has a squeezer which ensures that the exact concentration of chemical required on fabric for desired reaction is available in the steam chamber.
Why we use an impregnator?
We use an impregnator to provide:-
An even exposure of fabric to the chemicals.
So that a consistent result is guaranteed for every sq. inch of the fabric.
So that the precise addition of chemicals is present to avoid any manual errors.
Our technology employs continuous steamer for both large and medium production quantities. This generates a saturated steam in a continuous process to eliminate the chances of iron impurities entering in the system.
Why we use a continuous steamer?
A continuous steamer is used to provide-
No metal abrasion
Penetration of steam into yarn.
No Dry-up marks
No Fold marks
VIEW OUR MACHINE PROCESS
The world textile market grows year by year at a tremendous rate with the cotton supply remaining stagnant or the same, thus creating a gap between demand and supply in the supply chain.
At Antique, some of our machineries are well equipped to produce high ended 600 Gsm of cotton fabrics. This provides us with a good opportunity to produce processed fabric and supply it to open market. Processing at Morbi provides the advantage of procuring good results while we can also save time and transport cost as we achieve a quality of fabric work which is otherwise a major concern.
