In fabrics production, textile goes through softening treatment to improve fabric’s aesthetic properties. For this purpose, the fabric is passed via rollers to an immersion bath containing a softener solution.
The concentration of the bath must be monitored and kept constant as it gets diluted with water that is brought together with fabric from the previous step.
Vaisala K-PATENTS® process refractometer provides continuous measurement of the softener concentration to alert the operators of when the concentration needs to be replenished. The in-line refractometer also indicate when the required concentration has been reached during the addition of the softener.
