  • Optimisation of the dryer and back coating processes for carpet manufacturing in terms of heater configuration, nozzle shape, airflow and control / adjustment. - Publishable final report


Publishable final report of project JOE3-CT98-7033.

Drying, setting and back-coating operations represent critical stages in the production of textile floor coverings. Up to now, a precise determination of temperature and airflow on the product surface and in the airflow channels was not possible.

This project aims at a reduction of unburned methane by optimising the burner, which results in a reduction of energy costs and easing the environmental burden. Furthermore, the product quality can be improved by a more consistent drying.
