In­dia: Fab­care dis­plays wash­ing ma­chines that save 70 per cent of wa­ter

Stitch World - - NEWS TRACK -

With the grow­ing re­al­i­sa­tion for the need to have sus­tain­able prod­ucts and con­sid­er­ing the ad­verse im­pact of tex­tile in­dus­try on the en­vi­ron­ment, the best pos­si­ble way for­ward is to de­vise new tech­niques, prod­ucts and tech­nol­ogy that can help in re­duc­ing the en­vi­ron­men­tal foot­print of tex­tiles. Wa­ter, be­ing the ma­jor source of gar­ment dye­ing and wash­ing, is de­plet­ing day by day. For in­stance, about 920 gal­lons of wa­ter are re­quired to make a pair of jeans; sim­i­larly other tex­tile prod­ucts also con­sume huge amount of en­ergy and wa­ter dur­ing pro­cess­ing and fin­ish­ing.

There are a num­ber of com­pa­nies which are ad­dress­ing these en­vi­ron­men­tal prob­lems and are work­ing to­wards it, and due to the huge de­mand from such com­pa­nies, tech­nol­ogy sup­pli­ers also have to come up with in­no­va­tions, which can save on re­new­able re­sources.

Among the gamut of in­no­va­tions be­ing done in this field, Fab­care Gar­ments and Tex­tile Ma­chin­ery Pvt. Ltd., which had ex­hib­ited at Gar­tex 2018 for the first time, show­cased one such in­no­va­tion. The com­pany dis­played its gar­ment dye­ing and wash­ing ma­chines equipped with ‘Fab­care Splash Tech­nol­ogy’, which uses less wa­ter and pro­vides gen­tle wash.

Ab­hi­nav Arya, Di­rec­tor – Plan­ning, Fab­care stated, “Lately, the pol­lu­tion de­part­ment has also asked peo­ple who are into gar­ment dye­ing and wash­ing busi­ness to im­ple­ment the Zero Dis­charge of Haz­ardous Chem­i­cals (ZDHC) guide­lines in or­der to progress to­wards the zero dis­charge of haz­ardous chem­i­cals in the tex­tile, leather and footwear value chain and im­prove the en­vi­ron­ment and peo­ple’s well-be­ing. This ‘Splash Tech­nol­ogy’ will save about 70 per cent of wa­ter in ev­ery cy­cle.”

The wash­ers un­der this tech­nol­ogy cut down on en­ergy and chem­i­cals and en­zymes’ con­sump­tions by half. The spe­cially de­signed drum forces the pres­surised liquor con­tents to be pen­e­trated into the gar­ments, which fur­ther pro­vide 50 per cent more load­ing al­lowance. This not only saves wa­ter but also chem­i­cals, heat en­ergy, waste­water, elec­tric­ity and dyestuff, lead­ing to higher qual­ity, more eco­nomic and vi­able dye­ing with­out any re­jec­tion even dur­ing the long process time.

Fab­care ma­chine is avail­able in dif­fer­ent mod­els han­dling ca­pac­ity from 30 kgs to 500 kgs. It is equipped with special fea­tures like on­line pH me­ter, auto tem­per­a­ture con­trol, auto wa­ter level con­trol, auto drain and wa­ter flow me­ter. Some fea­tures can be op­tion­ally added in the ma­chine like the tilt fea­ture that al­lows easy un­load­ing and the mi­cro­pro­ces­sor that per­mits au­to­matic and man­ual con­trol of all the ma­chine func­tions.

Ab­hi­nav elab­o­rated, “When less amount of wa­ter is in­volved, then ap­par­ently you will re­quire less amount of chem­i­cals and en­zymes which means there will a lesser load on in­vest­ments. For me, the term ‘sus­tain­abil­ity’ means to save wa­ter, and hence, save ev­ery­thing.”

Es­tab­lished in 1995, Fab­care had its pro­duc­tion fa­cil­ity of 2 lakh square feet in Mundka, Delhi. The com­pany is now ex­pand­ing its pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity to 3 lakh square feet. With PAN In­dia pres­ence and a team of 75 mem­bers, it has mag­nif­i­cent af­ter-sales ser­vice and pro­vides train­ings to the cus­tomers.

More­over, the com­pany also of­fers 5 years main­te­nance-free war­ranty on Fab­care ma­chines. It has a clien­tele base in var­i­ous cities across In­dia in­clud­ing Chen­nai, Hy­der­abad, Mumbai, Su­rat, Ahmed­abad, Lud­hi­ana, Jaipur and Delhi-NCR re­gion. It not only caters to the ap­parel and laun­dry sec­tor but also the hos­pi­tal­ity seg­ment. Many hospi­tals and chain of ho­tels have in­stalled Fab­care ma­chines.
