Depth Evaluation of Textile Finishing Performance


Author(s): Filipe Vaz*

The energetic performance assessment of a stenter system in a textile finishing mill plays a crucial role in evaluating its energy efficiency and overall sustainability. A stenter system is a vital component in the finishing process of textiles, where fabrics are stretched and dried to achieve desired characteristics. By conducting an energetic performance assessment, engineers and researchers can gain valuable insights into the system's energy consumption, losses, and potential improvements. Energy, also known as available energy, is a thermodynamic concept that quantifies the quality of energy within a system. Unlike traditional energy assessments that focus solely on energy consumption, energetic analysis considers both the quantity and quality of energy flows. This analysis provides a more comprehensive understanding of the system's performance, allowing for targeted improvements and resource optimization.
