Reduction in Steam Consumption

  1. Introduction

[CE 1.1]

Project: Reduction in Steam Consumption

Duration: [Date] – [Date]

Location: [Location]

Organization: [Organization]

Position: Production Engineer

  1. Background

[CE 1.2]The pretreatment is basically an initial process in textile wet processing. It is mainly executed for removing oils, size, fats and waxes for enhancing absorbency. This makes the material sufficient white for making it ready for the process of dyeing. The process is typically carried out at 100 degrees in the fabric dyeing in process house. There was the pretreatment executed at 95 degrees which causes lower consumption of steam as well as reduces the soft-flow machines cycle-time.

[CE 1.3] The project aim was a reduction in pretreatment temperature from 100°C to 95°C in Fabric Dyeing. I worked on the reduction in PVA dissolution temperature from 120°C to 110°C in Fabric Dyeing. Furthermore, there was the reduction in temperature of hot wash following full bleach of Yarn in Package Dyeing machine from 100°C to 95°C. I also obtained an elimination of hot wash after Neutralization in full bleach of Yarn in Package Dyeing machine. There was even a reduction in the temperature of hot wash following Pretreatment of Yarn in Package Dyeing machine from 95°C to 75°C.

[CE 1.6] Responsibilities:

  • I worked on carrying out the PVA dissolution at 110degrees in zero twist towel which was subjected to alter with the defined absorbency and whiteness index.
  • I analyzed the PVA solubility in water which specifically dependent on the polymerization degree.
  • I worked on setting the partial-hydrolyzed PVA solubility which was high at room temperature and fully-hydrolyzed PVA was mandatory in water at the same situation.
  • I realized that the twist mainly referred towards the twists per inch of yarn values which were done using production engineering skills.

Reduction in Soft Water Consumption

  1. Introduction

[CE 2.1]

Project: Reduction in Soft Water Consumption

Duration: [Date] – [Date]

Location: [Location]

Organization: [Organization]

Position: Production Engineer

  1. Background

[CE 2.2]The regulation process mainly works for the prevention of the rapid decomposition of bleach and with the minimization of the fiber degradation mainly termed as the stabilization. The bleach bath stabilizers normally function from free radicals' formation control. These are associated with the complex materials blends selection specifically serving functions from controlling the free radicals' formation. The regulation process was complex based on the selection of the material mainly serving various functions.

[CE 2.6] The assigned duties in the project were:

  • I was responsible for carrying out the trials and testing which led towards obtaining the most effective process.
  • I mainly carried out working on setting the hot wash temperature at defined 95 degrees which were obtained after the neutralization process elimination.
  • I obtained the core pH value which was according to the defined standards when conducting various trails testing.
  • I worked on getting the RKM values which worked with the defined standards and the whiteness index was obtained accordingly with the defined TBM clothing.

Standardization of Cycle Time to Improve RFT%

  1. Introduction

[CE 3.1]

Title: Standardization of Cycle Time to Improve RFT%

Duration: [Date] – [Date]

Location: [Location]

Organization: [Organization]

Position: Production Engineer

  1. Background

[CE 3.2]The concept of RFT is mainly associated with the right first time to obtain the shape which was very much linked with the process of dyeing. There was an inverse relation associated with reprocessing and it includes enhancing the RFT which significantly reduces reprocessing with further enhancement in production. It was noted that the reprocessing mainly cost 1.5 times the production cost and on the other hand, it had various intangible advantages like quality, serviceability, and increasing A-Grade packing. In RFT, there is one percent improvement significantly resulted in the profitability. It was a mandatory requirement to enhance RFT for improving productivity and quality.

[CE 3.6] The assigned work duties were:

  • I made focus on the three key areas which were based on the cycle time standardization along with improving RFT percentage.
  • I set the base whiteness with the RFD ground absorbency.
  • I carried out process parameters setting set the process parameters which affected significantly in dyeing quality and these were RFD parameters, temperature/pressure at defined stages.
  • I worked on obtaining the chemicals and dyes weight with the functional considerations made on various factors for getting the desired work results.
