Thies highlighted iCone dyeing machine
iCone is the new development that
consolidates the highest ecological standards with technological
intelligence to achieve large savings in water and electricity
consumption. Construction of the iCone is based upon Thies’s
eco-bloc series, but it also incorporates innovative new
technologies. Its newly designed ‘pump block’ system allows
dyeing with an ultra short liquor ratio. Depending on carry-over
of the material, liquor ratios of 1:3.6 in partially flooded
vessels are now possible in mill practice.
Improved rinsing functions are said to
allow reduction of after-treatment time by almost one hour.
Moreover, the new ‘suction pipe’ design enables adjustment of
flow reversal - from inside to outside and outside to inside.
The iCone has been specifically developed to meet the
requirements of stringent international and local environmental
protection regulations with simultaneous consideration of its
economic efficiency. Thies from Germany is represented in
Pakistan by Noon International, which is based in Lahore with a
branch office in Karachi.
