Textile spinning sector looking at ways and means to conserve energy have now turned their attention to carbon-reinforced composite of spindle and drums. Indian Texpreneursâ€™ Federation (ITF) Secretary D Prabhu said that a good number of ITF members inked an agreement with Mantex for exclusive use of Mantex tubes in its ring frames.
As the ITF members were impressed with the presentative given by Atul Guglani, Managing Director of Mantex here recently highlighting the effectiveness of using carbon composites in the spindle of textile mills.
Guglani citing a study said that 40 percent of the power in a ring frame was due to the weight of the spindle. If this could be reduced from say one kg to 600 grams, the power consumption will drop by half.
Guglani told the audience that all it takes is a carbon composite of a spindle with the aluminium for a power saver spindle. The same applies for drums in winding machines, as both are power guzzlers.
According to Mantex Managing Director, the companyâ€™s composite tubes are fully recyclable. The carbon composite tubes are expensive, but if a spinning mill decides to change to carbon tube along with ring, then the return on investment can be recovered in 12 months. The savings could be huge.
Prabhu said that a good number of ITF members are looking to give into this. The Federation it is learnt has placed order (on behalf of its members) for one lakh tubes.
ITF members are quite impressed as the proposition seemed sustainable, environment friendly as well.
