Ph Welker GmbH, Germany, has introduced the new Condimat conditioning machine series.The Condimat
is based on a cylindrical autoclave body that can be manufactured with diameters of 1.6 to 3.0
millimeters (mm) and lengths of 1.5 to 14.0 mm.The Welker injector technology system injects cold,
saturated steam into the autoclave after five minutes, shortening the conditioning process to 35 to
45 minutes. According to Welker, the process can reduce energy costs up to 50 percent per kilogram
(kg) of conditioned yarn.Features of the Condimat include a new water-jet device to increase the
net moisture result; fully automatic packaging, wrapping or ticketing solutions; and a 10-year
autoclave guarantee for the autoclave vessels.
