Bustamente Installs Brückner IR Dryer

Textiles Bustamente S.A., Peru, has installed a Power-Infratherm infrared (IR) dryer manufactured
by Brückner Textile Technologies GmbH & Co. KG, Germany. Bustamente, which produces more than 1
million meters of outerwear fabric monthly, retrofitted the dryer on an existing thermosol dyeing
line in order to improve productivity and dyed fabric quality. Brückner’s After Sales Service
tailored the dryer to Bustamente’s needs.

Brückner reports the dryer is energy-efficient and low-maintenance; offers homogenous and
reproducible dyeing, homogenous and migration-free drying, and controlled fresh air/exhaust air
convection; heats up quickly; and has a temperature control range from 500°C to 900°C.
