The precise airflow and temperature control of the Matrix Hot Flue ensures all applications perform as required. The highly efficient insulated panels and precise exhaust control minimize energy usage.

The Matrix Hot Flue both increases dye yield and enhances color development, and simultaneously minimizes off-shade problems. Fabric is laced vertically over thick walled rolls and sized to each specific application.

Cooling Zone

Available in a wide range of widths to accommodate different processes, the Navis PlanaTex Cooling Zone is a modular unit that uses plant air to cool the fabric or web after the stenter.
