Oil-free compressed air means more efficient production, reduced repair and maintenance costs, and improved product quality with less wastage.
Compressed air is blown through fine nozzles to transport the weft. Oil in the air blocks the nozzles, leading to production stoppages and costly nozzle replacements. Fabric staining will also result, causing product rejections.
Exhaust air from the nozzles blows over the air-jet weaving machines. Any oil present deposits on the reeds. It attracts dust and fibres causing the reeds to stick together and break. Resulting production losses and reed replacements are very expensive.
