WEKO | ProTec

Create a Clean and Safe Working Environment

WEKO | ProTec is an enclosed Application System with extraction capabilities, and thus especially designed for critical chemicals to ensure a clean working environment. Applications range from the Nonwovens Industry to Textiles, Plastic Film and Tissue. Liquid finishes include for instance Antimicrobials, Hydrophobic/Hydrophilic, Softeners, Flame Retardant, Silicones, Oily Lubricants, Resins and many more…

The WEKO | Protec in brief

The fluid is evenly distributed over the web through fast spinning rotor discs by centrifugal forces. Therefore, a uniform film of ultra-fine droplets is created. The WEKO | ProTec consists of two enclosed units, each with a dedicated suction pipe on top and bottom.

This solution has two enclosed elements. Either a rotor carrier unit and a catch unit on the opposite side or with two opposite rotor carrier units working according to the principle of WEKO-Sigma. This allows for high precision, single or double sided web application. The carrier includes an automatic traversing unit to open the system for easy web insertion and high serviceability. The WEKO extraction cabinet has an adjustable extraction volume as well as an exhaust air connection for customer-side piping.

A Safe and Clean Way of Textile Finishing

Thanks to the encapsulated the functional textile finishing is safe. Undoubtedly, this solution protects significantly against escaping of aerosols. Furthermore, the special design creates a clean working environment. The building of the web is easy and fast. A highly efficient extraction unit provides the desired protection, once the unit is closed.
