Brückner, which is known worldwide for its high-quality lines for textile finishing, also offers a wide range of lines for the carpet manufacturing industry. For more than 70 years customers around the globe have been using Brückner lines for coating, drying and finishing a wide variety of floor coverings.

In recent years, a wide range of lines have been supplied for finishing tufted and woven carpets, as well as thermofusion ovens for needle felt and back coating lines for artificial turf.

Brückner lines offer the right unit for every process, according to the company. Whether full bath impregnation for aqueous media, one-sided full-surface or dot application of latex and acrylate pastes, foam or paste application via various roller and knife blade systems for backing consolidation, application of laminating adhesive for a secondary backing and laminating units for wet laminating of the secondary back - Brückner has the right solution.

In addition to the application units, the Leonberg, Germany based company’s portfolio also includes corresponding drying systems. These include, for example, its Split-Flow dryers or thermofusion ovens from the Supra-Flow product line, which are also used for drying and heat-setting after digital printing or dyeing. Brückner’s Duo-Therm dryer has been specially developed for drying coated floor coverings and is particularly suitable for thermal treatment processes that require temperature separation between the upper and lower air.

Like all Brückner lines, Duo-Therm dryers can be heated with different media - direct or indirect gas heating, thermal oil heating, steam heating in low- or high-pressure versions, electric heating or hybrid versions. A recently delivered Brückner line for drying recyclable floor coverings was equipped with a completely electrically heated Duo-Therm dryer. By operating the dryer with green electricity, the carpet manufacturer now has the option of CO2-neutral production of fully recyclable floor coverings.

The development of sustainable and efficient products is a fundamental focus for Brückner. This is primarily about minimising the CO2 footprint, reducing resources and protecting the environment.

This also includes heat recovery and exhaust air purification systems from the ECO product family, which are available in various sizes and different combinations. They can be supplied for new machines as well as retrofitted to existing lines from a wide range of manufacturers. Depending on the process and type of fabric, the ECO products contribute to a significant reduction in emissions and an increase in energy efficiency. Replacing dryers in existing lines can also contribute to a significant increase in efficiency and productivity.
