GLASS FIBRE CONDITIONERS AND DRYERS
CONDITIONING OF GFY
The CONDIBOX GFY conditioning systems have been developed especially for the glass fibre yarn and fabrics manufacturing process, and are utilised in both:
A) after the winding process in yarn manufacturing plants, and
B) in glass fibre weaving plants, before the yarn is fed into the weaving or warping machine.
QUALITY AND SAFETY
Typically, the conditioning operation of glass fibre yarns is made with low temperatures in order to avoid yellowing and eventual damages to the spools. Working with too high temperatures, the spools tend to loose their measures. Therefore, the accurate control of the temperature is of paramount importance for the effectiveness of the moisturising operation. The proven MULTIPHASE SYSTEM allows smooth temperature and vacuum controlling throughout the entire conditioning cycle.
The process is done by means of saturated steam, which is guided into an evacuated steam chamber containing the glass fibre material.
Exposed to SUPERVACUUM, the steam in form of gas penetrates through the various layers into the core of the bobbin, where it condenses and moisturises the sizing material.
The moisture humidifies the sizing additives applied to the yarns in the spinning process. After finalised
moisturing, the drying process with AIRFLOW combined with SUPERVACUUM finalises the cycle, drying our the yarns back to starting moisture.
The yarns are fixed and the bobbin gains substantial improvement in consistency. The weaving efficiency is improved. The twist is fixed and abrasion effects are reduced. Eventual transport damages motivated by slipping off yarn layers are reduced.
