Drive towards energy efficiency
Rotary vane compressor manufacturer Mattei, as helped yarn manufacturer Autofil to reduce energy usage in its Nottingham facility by upgrading its compressed air equipment. Autofil manufactures a range of yarns primarily used for car seating fabrics. Part of this process involves operation of the dye house to colour the fabrics, which runs 24/ 7. The processes within the dye house require compressed air to be provided at a pressure of seven bar.
