Compressed Air is a key utility in the Textile industry. It is required at nearly every stage of the manufacturing process across industries, fabrics and processes. Most Textile companies rely on reliable, clean Class 0 Oil-Free air for these processes, but many do not understand how to optimize their usage of this air to substantially reduce their energy costs. Compressors are needed for precise control of pneumatic valves and cylinders, jet looms, spinning frames, sewing machines and blow guns to produce the garments that the world wears.
Processes such as power looms, process house & ginning mills, denim spinning, polyester filament yarn (PFY), texturing units and integrated cotton textiles require a varying degree of compressed air, anywhere from 30 cfm to 40,000 cfm. Ingersoll Rand’s range of compressed air solutions, including oil-free rotary screw or centrifugal technologies, for oil-free market applications has a reputation for being highly reliable and efficiently designed.
