Title
(EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR HYDROENHANCING FABRIC
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCEDE D'HYDROAMELIORATION DE TISSU
Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus (10) and related process for enhancement of woven and knit fabrics through use of dynamic fluids which entangle and bloom fabric yarns. A two stage enhancement process is employed in which top and bottom sides of the fabric are respectively supported on members (22, 34) and impacted with a fluid curtain including high pressure jet streams. Controlled process energies and use of support members (22, 34) having open areas (26, 36) which are aligned in offset relation to the process line produces fabrics having a uniform finish and improved characteristics including, edge fray, drape, stability, abrasion resistance, fabric weight and thickness.
(FR)
Appareil (10) et procédé associé d'amélioration de tissus tissés et à mailles par l'emploi de fluides dynamiques qui enchevètrent les fils et leur donnent un aspect velouté brillant. On utilise un procédé d'amélioration à deux étapes dans lequel les faces supérieure et inférieure du tissu sont respectivement supportées sur des organes (22, 34) et subissent l'impact d'un rideau de fluide comprenant des jets à haute pression. Les énergies commandées du procédé ainsi que l'emploi d'organes de support (22, 34) dotés de zones ouvertes (26, 36) alignées de manière décallée par rapport à la ligne de traitement permettent d'obtenir des tissus présentant un finissage uniforme ainsi que des caractéristiques améliorées parmi lesquelles un effilochage de bordure, un drapé, une stabilité, une résistance à l'abrasion, un poids et une épaisseur de tissu.
