Humidification has very important role in spinning or weaving process and influences to great extent – productivity and quality both. Besides, operators efficiency is also dependent during certain months of year when conditions inside are very unfavourable due to very humid and hot outside whether .
This causes loss of efficiency and absenteeism of workforce. Some textile fibres are hygroscopic in nature so these poor conditions cause lapping on top and bottom rollers which leads to low productivity, poor quality and high wastages in the process .
Chilling plants can be installed to overcome such difficult situations but their operational cost is very high and sometimes not viable, at least for spinning mills as power consumption is very high .
This article aims to highlight the new features added in the humidification plants, importantly, for future state of the art spinning mills with latest technology. In high productive and high speed spinning role of humidification plants becomes more critical and immediate actions are required to control the situation as new spinning machines are very long and staff /workforce available is also very less to bring the situation to normal once disturbed.
Automation And Digitization
New plants are fully automated and no manual interventions/adjustments are required. Earlier, it was needed to adjust the dampers and water pump flow to achieve required conditions inside. In modern humidification plants, all the fans and pumps are inverter controlled. High quality sensors give signals to damper /pump motors to adjust air quality going inside.
In modern humidification plants, likely, all the new features shall be available soon where one can access real time data anywhere from mobiles etc. All the data can be displayed inside the working areas also.
Better And Advance Software
The new software is much faster and quick to react to abrupt changes in the outside conditions. Accuracy has also improved with reliability of the system. There is no problems of system hanging and every time to restart it. One can see now latent heat data also on the screen along with grains/volume of air.
New fan design is supposed to give better efficiency and hence consumes less energy. Design of the complete plant has improved. Mechanical accuracy also
contributes to lower power consumption. Nowadays with pre-fabricated buildings , humidification plants can be mostly installed on ground floor with very less civil work barring water tanks etc
Easy To Install – New modular design with very less civil work saves time and ease of installation.
