EvoQuench PA POY systems destined for China

Oerlikon Barmag recently signed contracts for two orders with a total of 120 spinning positions for manufacturing polyamide POY yarn with Chinese yarn manufacturers. All positions will be equipped with the EvoQuench radial quenching system for polyamide.

With this, two well-known yarn manufacturers are now committing to the EvoQuench concept to produce polyamide yarn, equipping themselves for the manufacture of microfiber yarns in the process. The benefits of radial quenching vis-à-vis conventional cross-flow quenching when manufacturing microfibers are well-known from polyester processing: manufacturing high quality in a more production-reliable manner, i.e. with fewer yarn breaks, thus producing polyamide microfibers more efficiently.

Stephan Faulstich, Head of Development POY Process at Oerlikon Barmag comments, “This process creates fabrics, with a pleasant feel and will be used above all in the manufacture of sports apparel and underwear.”


Setting new standards in polyamide microfiber yarn manufacturing: the
EvoQuench PA radial quenching system.

Currently, Oerlikon Barmag is the world’s only supplier of an already operating radial quenching concept for polyamide. This was decisive for both customers (polyamide yarn manufacturers) from the Zhejiang and Fujian provinces. “We are anticipating a similar effect in the development of the polyamide market as we did in the case of polyester. The efficient production of high-end microfiber yarns has become possible with the introduction of radial quenching for polyester yarns; the products have quickly developed from a niche into standard products”, assesses Regional Sales Director, Detlef Heinze, talking about this quantum leap. The new systems are scheduled to begin manufacturing in early 2021. The high-end yarns are destined for global exports.
