Direct gas firing technology for dyeing and after-print processing of textile fabrics. A demonstration at Strines Textiles Ltd. [Birstall, Leicester (GB)]

Abstract

Strines Textiles near Manchester, UK, expect to make energy savings of 64,200 GJ/year worth 173,300 pounds from direct gas firing of their dyeing and after-print processes. The savings, to the greater extent, have been achieved by converting processes to local direct gas firing, thereby moving towards the elimination of a wasteful central boiler plant and steam distribution system. Additional energy savings have been generated in the wet wash processes, which remove surplus print dye from the fabric. The savings were achieved by heating the water with directly fired equipment which fully condenses water vapour in combustion exhaust, and by effluent heat recovery. Energy usage in the steaming operation, which fixed print dyes to the fabric, has been markedly reduced by the replacement of old plant by a new Stork Brabant steamer, with the steam provided by a steam generator located at the point of use. It is important to appreciate that each of the plant modifications described in this report may be considered in isolation. The project cost was 527,950 pounds. The total project savings were approximately 173,300 pounds giving a payback period of three years. The financial savings are highly dependent on the difference in cost between interruptible gas,  More>>

The total project savings were approximately 173,300 pounds giving a payback period of three years. The financial savings are highly dependent on the difference in cost between interruptible gas, which is used in central steam raising plant, and the more expensive firm gas, which is used in direct gas firing. Because of this, the payback period for some potential replicators could be reduced. (author).}
