Customer Details

A textile plant in North India with production capacity of
125,000 meters of fabric per day
Problems
- ~ 3000 kg/hr condensate drained from dyeing
section due to contamination
- Feed water temperature <60°C
Objective

To eliminate mixing of cooling water with
condensate
To prevent process steam loss
Solution

Detailed plant survey done by Forbes Marshall to
assess current losses and potential savings in the
steam system.
Installation of Forbes Marshall Jet Heat
Optimisation Module(JET-HOM) in the Jet Dyeing
machine.
Benefits
- No steam loss through manual operation of bypass
valves
- Efficient separation of condensate and cooling
water
- Reduction in live steam loss
- Improved condensate recovery factor with
~ 3000 Kg/hr of condensate recovered
- 15°C increase in feed water temperature
- Fuel saving of 3-4% per annum
