The Oerlikon Barmag Huitong Engineering joint venture, a part of the Oerlikon Manmade Fibers segment, recently commissioned a polycondensation system which feeds a polyester industrial yarn system.
Placing its trust in the Oerlikon Manmade Fibers ‘From Melt to Yarn’ total solution philosophy, industrial yarn manufacturer Jiangsu Solead New Material Group Co. Ltd. will be the future operator of this system.
This successfully concludes the first phase of this major project. Oerlikon Barmag Huitong Engineering installed the polycondensation system, which has a capacity of 600 ton/day, at Jiangsu Solead New Material Group Co. Ltd. in Jiangsu Province, China. This system will be connected to an Oerlikon Barmag industrial yarn spinning system with a 350-ton/day capacity.
The new systems will be deployed to produce predominantly high-tenacity (HT) yarns for use in agricultural, infrastructure, transport, security and outdoor applications. These systems can be used to manufacture yarns with up to 3 × 6,600 dtex of high yarn quality with simultaneously high production efficiency. Furthermore, low-shrinkage yarns for coating textiles and so-called LDI yarns (high-tenacity, low-denier industrial yarns) for industrial sewing threads, among other things, are also manufactured.
In addition to the polycondensation system, extrusion equipment and spinning system, Oerlikon Manmade Fibers is also supplying the complete engineering. The advantage for the customer: optimally harmonized process steps ensure high-quality yarn under economical production conditions.
