Delta-Nit Pad

The Delta-Nit Pad begins the finishing process after dyeing, bleaching, or scouring of circular knit fabrics. The Delta-Nit Pad processes either single or double strands of fabric and is available in either a two- or four-roll setup. Designed to be operated by only one person, the Delta-Nit Pad handles detwisting, spreading, extracting and chemical application.

  • Polyurethane roll covering
  • Stainless steel guards
  • AC inverter controls
  • Patented Touch-O-Matic low pressure spreading system


Quality & Savings Benefits:


  • Consistent chemical application on the fabric
  • Less loose lint in the process, pad, dryer and compaction
  • Reduced chemical loss during batch and bath changes
  • Elimination of reworks caused by incorrect chemical application
  • Ability to measure and control solids to +/- 0.1% of the set point

Navis TubeTex designed the CQC System to be supervisor driven, so only designated personnel can access recipes, including valve operations, set points and allowable tolerances. Supervisory-only access means product consistency is 100% assured. Once the function and timing for CQC recipes is established, an operator can use the Delta-Nit Pad’s control panel to start and run the set chemical application process.

The savings our customers see using the CQC System varies depending on the chemicals used, but 15% to 30% in run-time savings is typical. In addition, the Navis TubeTex CQC System captures chemicals normally lost during changeovers and color changes in standard uncontrolled systems. The captured chemical mix is metered out at the correct concentration with little – or no – loss. Standard large-mix-tank operations start at higher concentrations than required then drop until the solution reaches equilibrium, which can change based on each material’s width, weight, fiber and construction. The CQC System, on the other hand, eliminates waste by delivering consistent, efficient chemical application every time.

The detwisting process begins at the hydraulic-powered turntable which is installed in the floor at the front of the Delta-Nit Pad. The heavy duty turntable uses an inverter controlled soft starting pump that minimizes the stress on the turntable. Our optional power-driven cloth lifter, torque compensator and automatic detwisting sensor removes the twist from dyeing and carries the fabric tension-free to the Delta-Nit Pad.
