Park Valley Dyers Installs Thies Equipment
The machinery at Park Valley Dyers dyes 25 tons of yarn weekly and is operated by six employees. The plant features an energy-efficient hot water boiler with a recovery unit, and recycles and reuses all water used. The drying machinery uses hot air instead of radio frequency. In addition, the plant recycles all yarn delivery pallets and packaging.
Machinery installed includes an eco-bloc quattro lab sampling unit, and seven horizontal and two vertical eco-bloc yarn-dyeing machines — including two 840-kilogram-capacity units that can be linked and operated using one control unit. Park Valley also installed a pharmaceutical standard recipe preparation booth that enables the company to achieve a 98-percent right-first-time rate, according to Philip Brearley, managing director, Camira Fabrics.
