Color Service Automatic Dosing Systems
Established in 1987, Color Service
is an Italian company, one of the leaders in the development and
production of automatic dispensing and dosing systems. The
company was the first in the world to introduce during ITMA
1987, the first automatic dosing system for powder dyestuff for
textile industry, changing considerably the approach of the
textile world towards automation.
Over the years the range of Color Service
automatic dosing systems became larger, up to the production of
dosing systems for liquid auxiliaries, powder dyes (in
production and laboratory), powder chemicals for dyeing and
The weighing unit for powder dyes mod. TRS
automatically weighs any type of dyestuff in powder or granule
form, guaranteeing the accuracy of the dosing, reproducibility
of the recipes and the maximum hygiene in the working
environment. The system allows a remarkable accuracy within
small weighings and the accuracy is guaranteed by the use of
Mettler’s high accuracy weighing instruments. The full
automation for the dosing of the dyes is achieved combining the
dosing unit mod. TRS with the automatic dissolution unit
produced by Color Service in various models:
- JIT (to serve small dyeing machines
with reduced water volume).
- SCC 35 lt. with 1 dissolution keg to
dissolve medium quantity recipes, of about max 15 kg.
- SCC 50 lt. with 1 dissolution keg to
dissolve medium quantity recipes, of about max 18 kg.
- SCC 2 with n.2 dissolution tanks to
serve big capacity machines or a substantial number of
All dissolution units will then send in
automatic the dissolved dye, according to the parameters of
dissolution fixes by the customer, at the destination.
Another main innovation of Color Service
is the introduction of an automatic dosing/dissolving system for
powder chemicals (Salt, Sulphate, Soda).
The system prepares solutions highly
concentrated (up to 1:1) from powder chemicals. The dissolution
tank can be supplied in different capacities (360 or 500 lt) and
it is mounted on load cells, the product is dosed directly into
the dissolution water to make the cycle faster. A centrifugal
pump recirculates and then sends the bath to users. The dosing
and distribution of 300 kg in 300 lt of water are accomplished
in ten minutes.
Color Service is the only supplier in the
world to offer an automatic dosing system for liquid chemicals
highly fast and accurate. The speed of volumetric measurement is
combined with the precision of gravimetric dosing.
The customer has the possibility of
establishing a maximum dosing quantity for each product using a
gravimetric system involving a keg located on loading cells for
optimum accuracy. Above this threshold (e.g. over 300 gr.), the
system automatically deviates the products through the
volumetric system to optimise speed.
Color Service also was the first company
to introduce the multi-line delivery of dyes, liquids,
chemicals. This creation through a double distribution arm
provides the great advantage of dual feeds: two different
destinations can be supplied at the same time.
In conclusion, the main advantages of our
technology are the accuracy of weighing and the labour along
with time, energy and chemical savings. With our automatic
dosing systems, various human mistakes during the chemical
preparation are deleted and all activities of the dispensing are
reported allowing to get easily a cost analysis of the material.
In a few years, Color Service became the
world leader, attaining an important position in the textile
machinery field with products “Made in Italy”, creating a name
recognized worldwide that is synonymous with cutting-edge
systems and high technology. Choosing a Color Service plant
implies a solid backing and support of an industry leader with
25 years of proven experience. Thanks to an excellent worldwide
sales and support network, the company exports to almost every
country in the world as well.
