There are various methods for continuous fabric dyeing as well as dye fixing. When dye is directly applied, steaming (heat treatment) is required. At present the pad-steam method is widely used for continuous dyeing. To ensure stable product quality, the humidity in the steamer is kept at a constant level.
The ZR802G Zirconia High Temperature Humidity Analyzer provides excellent maintainability as it does not require the use of a sampling system, and ensures stable measurement in high temperature environments. It has been well received in the marketplace and is widely used in humidity control applications.
- Maintains the quality of the discharge process
- Ensures stable, continuous humidity measurement
- Reduces operating costs
The pad-steam dyeing process uses vat, reactive, acid, disperse, and other types of dyes, and includes padding, drying, fixing, washing, and re-drying steps. After padding, the fabrics are forwarded to a steamer where the dye is fixed under conditions of constant temperature and humidity.

Notes• It is best to install the detector vertically with the probe head pointing downward, but it can also be installed at any angle between 0° and 90° (horizontal installation shown right) with respect to the vertical.
Chemical plants rely on continuous and batch production processes, each posing different requirements for a control system. A continuous process calls for a robust and stable control system that will not fail and cause the shutdown of a production line, whereas the emphasis with a batch process is on having a control system that allows great flexibility in making adjustments to formulas, procedures, and the like. Both kinds of systems need to be managed in available quality history of product, and to be able to execute non-routine operations. With its extensive product portfolio, experienced systems engineers, and global sales and service network, Yokogawa has a solution for every plant process.
