The new process, developed on the Monforts MXL® range, ensures processing times are reduced
from more than 20 hours to just 3 minutes. It also offers greater flexibility and high process
safety than conventional systems.

The Thermex Hotflue chamber, making its international debut in the MXL® mode of operation, is
manufactured in stainless steel to withstand the process acidity.

Monforts will also demonstrate the latest software in process control technology to ensure
economic and ecological solutions.

References for technical textile applications will also be displayed. Further, Monforts
technologists will be on-hand to offer advice for ‘classical’ textile and technical textile
processing techniques.
