Heat is required to get the dye to adhere properly to the yarn or fabric. Generally, the heat transferring medium is hot steam. The precise control of temperature via steam is carried out by control valves like Schubert & Salzer's sliding gate control valve. Often the same valve is also used to control water for cooling after the dyeing process. Dosage of dyestuff requiring extreme precision is also possible with the sliding gate valve. Sliding gate valves provide a seal by the metallic pairing of discs with overlapping slots, reinforced by the backing of its own operating medium. Users appreciate in particular the substantially lower energy consumption due to the short stroke and the optimal flow control. With their compact construction, sliding gate valves are also very maintenance friendly. An overview of all features of this valve series can be found by clicking here.
