Humidification and humidity control
in textile manufacturing
Humidification in textile manufacturing has many benefits that will enhance profitability:
Product weight - preventing moisture loss during a textile’s processing and storage can reduce weight loss from a typical 4% to just 0.5%.
Yarn quality - correct humidification will maintain yarn strength and elasticity, producing a better quality product with higher margins. Wastage is also reduced through a reduction in shedding.
Static control - Static can cause reduced productivity and product quality due to lint and fly attraction, machine jams and employee discomfort or even accidents. Higher humidity naturally dissipates static charges alleviating these problems.
Weaving efficiency - optimal humidification reduces yarn breakages in weaving, reducing machine downtime as well as loom stop marks and weavers knots in the finished product.
Employee comfort - humidifiers can deliver around 5°C of evaporative cooling to a textile production facility, while suppressing dust, fly and lint. This creates a healthier and more productive atmosphere for employees.
