Completing the Thies range of yarn dyeing machines, the hankMaster has been specifically designed for the dyeing of yarns in hank form.
The novel liquor flow ensures perfect dyeing of a wide range of hanked yarns including wool, soft and mercerised cotton, and critical fibres such as
viscose, polyamide, silk and high bulk acrylics.
The hankMaster is designed to dye at temperatures of up to 98°C at a starting liquor ratio of 1:5 and depending on the loading and yarn quality.
To avoid high spots and lustre marks the hanks are rotated on specially designed rods 1300 mm wide. The hankMaster can be supplied with 2, 4, 6, 8 or 10 rods, each capable of holding, subject to the volume and type of material, max. 10 kg of yarn. The max. hank length is 1000 mm.
For bigger batch sizes machines a series of machines can be coupled.
