Parameter of finishing process in knit dyeing

  1. 1. Total Textile Process at a Glance
  2. 2.  Finishing is a general term which usually refers to treatment on textile fabrics after dyeing or printing.  It increase life and durability of the fabric. By finishing we can maintain fabric shape and size. Finishing accentuate or inhibiti some characteristic of fabric. Impart new characteristic or properties. Finishes may be done by chemically or mechanically. To get good finished quality we should maintain machine parameter or proper chemical recipe. We can improve finished product quality by developing machine parameter or create new and appropriate chemical recipe.
  3. 3. •To improve the appearance of the fabric. •To improve the feel of the fabric by softening, stiffening, etc. •To cover faults in the original fabric. •To increase weight of the cloth. •Special properties required for particular uses .
  4. 4. Types of finishing The most common classifications: Aesthetic finishes Functional finishes Finishes also classifies:
  5. 5. Process Flow Chart of Finishing Section:
  6. 6. After dyeing process from the dyeing machine then the fabrics are ready for de-watering. This is the process to remove the water from the fabrics partially by squeezing. Process flow chart: Fig: Crossectional view of Bianco Tube Squeezer. Basic function of the squeezing m/c: To remove the water from the fabric. To control the width of the fabric. To control the length of the fabric. To control the spirality of the fabric. To control the over feeding system. To increase the softness of the fabric. To remove the crease mark of the fabric.
  7. 7. • The slitting machine is used in processing fabrics in the open line in the finishing section. Main Parts: *Turn table; *Beater; *Rope; *De- twister; *Centering unit; *Slitting unit *Pulley drive *Squeezing Process flow chart: Figure: Passage Diagram of Slitting Machine of Brueckner Machine Functions: •To slit the tube fabric by the knife for opening of the fabric and ready for stentering. •Delivered fabric is crease free state. •Before squeezing balloon is formed with the help of compressed air passing by a nozzle or air sprayer. •It can control the diameter of fabric and GSM and shrinkage by over feeding mechanism. •Soften the fabric by applying the softeners.
  8. 8. •The machine is used for removing the residual water contained in the fabric after squeezing by applying heat on the fabric in the machine. •the fabric is feed on the drying net at low over feed speed and the humidity is continuously measured. •Drying is done by applying heat through burner nozzles. Main parts: •Heating chamber •Blower •Synthetic blanket as a conveyor •Folder •Exhaust fan •Steam valve •Conveyer roller •Tension roller Machine Functions: •To dry the fabric with help of steam •To control the shrinkage •To prepare for next subsequent process •To dry tubular and open width fabric without tension. •To remove residual water containing in the fabric.
  9. 9. Stenter Machine:•Stenter is used for open form fabric. It is the heart of open knit finishing sector. Main Parts & Zones: Back Zone: #Guider ; #Two Baths & Padder or Squeezer; #Auto centering Middle Zone: #Over feed regions; #Bianco or Mahlo arrangement; #Chain & clip system; #Chambers (Contains blower, heater, recovery) Front Zone: #Over feed zone ; #Plaiting; #Static electricity remover Figure : Passage Diagram of Stenter Machine Functions: •To control the shrinkage •To control the required GSM by overfeed •To control the required dia. •Heat setting •For straighten the fabric •To control bowing & bias (spirality) •For uniform moisture content •Finishing chemical application •Selvedge gumming & cutting
  10. 10. •The treatment of knit fabrics in tubular form on the TUBULAR COMPACTOR meets the exacting standards set by customers Main Machine Parts: •Feed section: Tension control & Metal detector. •Shape: Set according to the dia. of fabric •Steam zone •Take out & Plaiter zone •Compacting Zone: It’s a roller & shoe arrangement & the most important zone which consists of two rollers, the Feed roller (Recarter roller) & the Retard roller. They are heated by Shoe, into which hot thermo-oil runs through. Fig: Cross sectional View of Tube Compactor Machine Basic functions of the Tube compactor machine: •To control the GSM. (Increase & decrease). •To control the dia. •To control the shrinkage. (Increase & decrease). •Width control through a stepless adjustable special tubular fabric spreader driven by variable speed motor for distortion-free fabric guidance. •Steamping with a condensate-free steam box which is easily operated and completely made from stainless stell. •Compacting through two Nomex felt belts. •Calendaring while passing between the felt belt and the heated shrinking rollers.
  11. 11. •Open Width Compactor is suitable for open width knit fabrics to achieve exact dimensional stability and a soft feel. Main Parts of the Machine: •Heating chamber •Blower (2, one at the entry chain zone for uncurling and another at the entry of compacting zone) •ynthetic blanket as a conveyor, •Folder •Exhaust fan •Unpinning cylinder (-40% (+-)40%) •Belt cylinder (-40% ( +-)40%) •Uncurling device at entry of compacting zone. •Sensor •Brush roller Figure: Passage diagram of Corino Open Compactor Machine Function: •To compact the fabric •To control the shrinkage •To maintain proper width and G.S.M •To make the fabric surface smooth
  12. 12. •During raising, the fabric surface is treated with sharp teeth to lift the surface fibres, thereby imparting hairiness, softness and warmth, as in flannelette. Main parts: •Return drag roller •Pile •Counter pile •Front drag roller •Suction pump •Drum •Plaiter roller Feed Delivery Pile Counter pile Front drag Roller Rear drag Roller Return drag roller Plaiter roller Figure : Cross-sectional view of Raising Brush machine Machine Functions: •To obtain a lofty handle effect on fabric. •To obtain fleece appearance. •To create pile on fabric surface. •To produce a heavier surface made of fibers.
  13. 13. •Softening treatment is one of the most important chemical after treatments in the textile industry. •By softening treatment textile can achieve not only soft handle but also: Some smoothness. More flexibility. Drape and Pliability. Antistatic properties. Luster. Soft handle. Types of softeners:
  14. 14. Advantages: •Resins have a profound effect on and cause changes in the hand (feel), drapability and physical characteristics of textiles. •They add stiffness to fabrics and are thus used as stiffening agents or to create a firm hand. •Yarns in fabric will be stabilized and will resist shrinkage in laundering. •This finish imparts luster to the cotton. •Increases cotton strength by nearly 25% and improves dye affinity. •It is a method of thickening woollen material to make it more water-resistant
  15. 15. •Nanotechnology is an umbrella term covering a wide range of technologies concerned with structures and processes on the nanometric scale. •. Nanotechnology deals with the science and technology at dimensions of roughly 1 to 100 nanometers (1 Billion Nanotechnology = 1metre), although 100 nanometers presently is the practically attainable dimension for textile products and applications. •The Nanotechnology can be used in engineering desired textiles attributes, such as fabric softness, namely, water repellency, fire retardancy, antimicrobial resistance etc in fibers, yarns and fabrics. •Enhancement of textile materials by nanotechnology is expected to become a trillion dollar industry in the next decade, with tremendous economic and ecology benefits. •With the advent of nanotechnology, a new area has developed in the realm of textile finishing.
  16. 16. Antimicrobial Finish: • It is a well-known fact that the growth of bacteria and microorganisms in food or water is prevented hen stored in silver vessels due to its antibacterial properties. • The antibacterial properties of silver are now scientifically recognized. • Silver ions have been spectrum of antimicrobial activities. • The method of producing durable silver containing antimicrobial finish is to encapsulate silver compound or nano particle with a fiber reactive polymer like poly (styrene-maleric anhydride). • Products which are commonly applied are brominated phenols, quaternary ammonium compounds, organo-silver and tin compounds, which can be applied as solutions or dispersions. • They can also be incorporated in a polymeric film deposited on the surface to achieve controlled release. • The rays in the wavelength region of 150 to 400nm are known as ultraviolet radiations. •ultraviolet absorber finish of a fabric is present that absorbs ultraviolet radiation and blocks its transmission through a fabric to the skin. •Metal oxides like ZnO as UV-blocker are more stable when compared to organic UV- blocking agents. •Hence, nano ZnO will really enhance the UV-blocking property due to their increase surface area and intense absorption in the UV region.

  26. 26. Abstract: We have tried to present all types of finishing processes. Most of the finishing processes are not conduct in Bangladesh. In our country function finishing process is done mostly. Aesthetic finishing are more expensive than functional. We tried hard to give accurate parameter and solve the fault of finishing process. That’s how we can develop finishing process and give more production. Due to limitation our knowledge we did not all finishing processes. We think that our internship and project paper based on finishing will increase our knowledge in many sides.
