Cotton, linen, silk, wool, polyamide, Tencel, Lyocell, Modal, nylon… With Airo®24 (Patented) all types of products such as natural fibers, artificial fibers and synthetic fibers can be treated without limits in terms of weight and width. Results are obtained in complete safety and without defects for a high-quality finishing style.
Some of the treatments and results which can be obtained with AIRO®24 are:
The combination of temperature and mechanical action on the fabric, the ratio of new and recirculated air injected into the treatment channel and the high air speed, optimize the thermal efficiency of AIRO® 24. Together with its low electrical consumption, AIRO® 24 offers flexible and extremely efficient production, delivering the least cost per metre of processed fabric.
The specific design of the machine avoids the need for maintenance and eliminates the risk of yellowing fabric, even when using the highly efficient microprocessor-controlled gas burner as an alternative (or together, thanks to the twin heating option) to the other heating systems such as steam and diathermic oil.
The SMART-SWITCH 2.0 technology
The SMART-SWITCH system 2.0, patented by Biancalani, intelligently controls and optimizes the change of direction of the air and fabric, allowing to finely modulate the intensity of the mechanical action independently from the drying power. From lightweight materials to heavier ones made of delicate yarn, every type of fabric can benefit from this technology, with a considerable increase in drying capacity and productivity: strong when needed, gentle where deserved.
The patented H-SHUTTER device, that independently varies the width of each end of the treatment channel, increases the performance of the machine, providing extreme flexibility for special treatments such as on polar fleece.
With the new and patented FLEXFLOW option, the height of the treatment channel can be modulated in a range of ±50%, allowing to adaptively shape the flow of the process air and perfectly match it to the characteristics of the fabric, for an optimized process which leads to unprecedented levels of flexibility, productivity and energy saving.
Double capacity: AIRO®24 Tandem
In AIRO®24 the loop of terry towel relaxes and gets positioned vertically with respect to the fabric, and the tandem version of AIRO®24 (patented), specially designed for the needs of terry towel and velvet producers, offers a double drying capacity compared with the standard machine. Also on this variant, the SMART-SWITCH 2.0 can be applied in order to further increase the drying capacity of the machine.
