Textile Dye Mixing
Bill Craig, along with Wayne Szafranski of Valcor Enterprises, Inc. is the PULSAIR representative in Greensboro, N.C, and says that "The 5-55 Drum-Stick is perfect for textile dye operations. Both the end users and the dye chemical companies can use them effectively."
Typically, the dye manufacturer must mix component chemicals (emulsions, softeners, salts, surfactants, pigments, etc.) to make proper formulations for the dyeing process. This is typically done in 300 to 500 IBC batch quantities and then shipped to the dyeing house.
1. Incoming raw materials usually arrive at the chemical company in 55 gallon drums or IBC's. These raw materials must be mixed and sampled prior to making dye formulations. The Drum-Stick makes this easy and fast - it's a real time saver.
2. The formulations that are shipped to the dyeing houses must be mixed properly. Here in the U.S., the dye chemical companies mix, package and ship their product "just in time" to the dyeing house almost hourly. Therefore, the mixing process must be very quick and simple. PULSAIR's 10-55 Tote-Stick is perfect for IBC containers. PULSAIR engineered systems are excellent solutions for containers larger than 1,000 U.S. gallons.
"PULSAIR is a perfect match for the textile dye industry!"
