Monforts Unveils New Tenter

Monforts Textilmaschinen GmbH &
Co. KG, Germany, has introduced the Montex 6500 tenter for the treatment of woven and/or knitted
fabrics. The machine, which offers horizontal or vertical chain return, has several new features
that facilitate installation, operation and maintenance; improve performance and reduce operating
costs, according to the company.

Monforts’ integrated heat recovery system — featuring an energy-conserving compact
air-to-air heat exchanger installed within the tenter’s roof — will be standard on all new Montex
tenters. The system reduces energy use by 10 to 35 percent, depending on production conditions, the
company reports.

An optional waterless automatic cleaning device also is available. In addition, Monforts
offers a hi-E high-efficiency package with energy-saving features.
