The new Goller Knit Merc for perfect
At ITMA 2019 in Barcelona from June 20-26th, Goller, a
member of the CHTC FONG’S International Group, will introduce
the new Knit Merc for achieving the highest quality
mercerization of knitted fabrics at the lowest tension and with
under 3% variation in dimensional stability with high grade
fabrics, for perfect dyeing results every time.
Mercerization is an essential textile finishing step for all
cotton and cellulosic fibre-based fabrics in order to improve
dye uptake and tear strength while reducing fabric shrinkage and
imparting a silk-like lustre to the materials.
The Knit Merc is the result of intensive R&D developments at
Goller and follows the successful introduction to the market of
the company’s Sintensa Cyclone drum washing compartments for
achieving the highest washing efficiency at the lowest tension.
The Knit Merc being exhibited at ITMA 2019 can accommodate
8.4 metres of fabric in its impregnation compartment and a
further four metres in its first chain section to achieve a
production speed of 25m/min at 30 seconds dipping time.
It is designed for dry-on-wet mercerizing, either cold or
hot, and is equipped with an inlet combination of scroll and
slat rollers for fabric guidance, a Tandematic uncurler in front
of a rubberized de-airing roller and a grooved 320mm bottom
roller with 320mm and 600mm perforated upper drums.
The new Goller Knit Merc will be displayed at ITMA
It benefits from automatic tension regulation and the low
liquor content is ensured by the integrated lye tank and
automatic circulation and filtration units.
An 8-ton high efficiency squeezer is stationed at the exit
before the chain section and a 5-ton squeezer at the exit of the
Further fabric control and stability is provided by a cast
iron pin chain with automatic optical and mechanical sensors,
the Tandematic uncurler, an overfeed device and a driven belt
arrangement for fabric support.
The Knit Merc combines easily with the high efficiency Goller
Sintensa Cyclone drum washing compartment with its Cyclone Rotor
specially designed to create an adjustable under-pressure, for
optimised fabric transport, the highest washing efficiency and
