Textile Industries

Erivac provides equipment for Textile Industries

Traditionally the manufacture of textiles from Natural Fibres such as Cotton is considered to have very high water consumption as well as high use of chemicals. Today these textile industries are closing their loops with the reuse of water and chemical, such as Caustic Recovery for Mercerizing Lye, wherever possible. There are also several opportunities for heat recovery and efficient energy use that can be explored. Over the last few years, the reuse of textile fibers has been developed mixed with virgin fibers of the same origin or new fibers from Wood or Pulp and Paper Industry side streams.

Textile Industries

Steel Industries has many process steps, each with its individual necessity of units operations: – Vapour Recompression can be made for drying machine uning Thermocompressors; – Vacuum is necessary for Merserizing Lye Evaporation; – Heat Transfer (heating, cooling, heat interchange) for dirty fouling media, in many cases also carrying fibers; – Large amounts of cooling and cleaning water is used that requite adequate filtration and sometimes elimination of mussels and mussel larvae. 

Ejectors and Vacuum Systems

 – Steam Jet Heaters and ThermoCompressors

 – Caustic Recovery Plants for Merserizing Lye evaporation

 – Eductors for Tank Mixing and Jet Aeration for Waste Water Treatment

Heat Exchangers 

 – Spiral Heat Exchangers for liquid/liquid applications with dirty fouling media, in many cases also carrying fibers, as economizers, heaters / coolers, or in two phase applications as condensing or evaporation operations, steam heaters, reboilers, etc.

 – Welded Plate Heat Exchangers. These are for applications as above but for less dirty or semi-fouling media.

 – Gasketed Plate Heat Exchangers


 – Automatic Filters for protection of heat exchangers and spray nozzles for reduced maintenance necessity and increased plant availability, filtration of raw water and cooling water circuits. If Sea or Brackish Water is used, acting as effective mussels and mussel larvae stop.
