Types of Compactor | Functions And Checking Parameter Of Tubular And Open Compactor

Textile Compactor Machine

Textile compacting machine is an important part of the finishing section of the dyeing and finishing processing unit. Additionally, different types of fabric finishing apply to fabric by this compactor machine such as shrinkage control by tubular compactor and to open the fabric from tubular form by the open compactor.

Types of Compactor

Compactor machines are of two types. They are-

Tubular Compactor

The tubular compactor is used after hydro-extractor, de-watering, and dryer. By the compactor machine, compacting is done to control the shrinkage of the fabric. Here, different types of offline quality of the fabric are measured.

Open Compactor

The open compactor is used for compacting the open form fabric. Here, a slitting machine is used to open the fabric from the tubular form.

Functions of Tubular Compactor:

Following objectives are achieved by the tubular compactor. They are-

  1. Shrinkage of the fabric is controlled by the compactor.
  2. Fabric width is controlled by the compactor.
  3. GSM of the fabric is adjusted by the compacting.
  4. Fabric smoothness is achieved by the compactor.
  5. Heat setting of fabric for Lycra is done by tubular compactor.

Checking Parameters of Compactor:

Following parameters check-in compactor machine.

  1. Shade Check: Shade of the compacting fabric is checked in the delivery side of the machine. The operator collects the fabric and compare the shade of the fabric with the buyer’s approved swatch.
  2. Width Check: Operator measures the width of the fabric with the measuring tape and compares it with the buyer’s requirement.
  3. Weight Check: Weight of the fabric is determined by GSM check. Operator checks the GSM of the fabric by GSM cutter and electric balance.
  4. Edge Line Checking: Two edges of the fabric is check in delivery side. If any fix line is identified, which normally occurs from the expander it should be connected.
  5. Design and Slanting: Operator checks design and slanting of the fabric in the delivery side of the machine.
  6. Fabric Faults: Various types of fabric quality are measured in the delivery side of the fabric.

Compactor Machine:

Here, I have presented a tubular and open compactor with its specification. The figure which is mentioned here is changeable depending on the demand.

Another, Open Compactor:

Brand nameFerraro
Model no.Complex/Fv200

So, we should be careful about the fabric faults. If any faults are found in the fabric then we should adjust the machine parameter as per requirement.
