Some of the standard features:

KIER  The kier is designed and constructed to ASME code requirements from type 316 stainless steel, assuring a long and productive life.  The interior of the machine is easily accessible for inspection and maintanance through the hinged manway on one end of each machine.  Buildup of dyes and chemicals on interior surfaces of the kier is minimized by an automatically operated internal spray system, reducing the frequency of expensive boil-outs.

LIQUOR CIRCULATION  The pump, heat exchanger, filter, and jet are carefully engineered for ideal liquor circulation.  Working together they provide high fabric/dyebath interchange as well as smooth transport of fabric from the lifter reel, through the jet, to the back of the chamber.  This ensures high quality dyeing performance and enhances fabric circulation.

LINT FILTER  A cartridge type lint filter is standard and is usually adequate for normal operation.  If a change in product mix makes additional filtering capacity necessary, the Gastons feature a standard piping system design so the optional self-cleaning filter can be easily installed without expensive repiping.

HEAT EXCHANGER  Heating or cooling of the dyebath is achieved indirectly and efficiently with a rugged shell and tube heat exchanger, sized to deliver the rate of temperature change required by the normal dye process.  If process conditions make it necessary, an optional high capacity heating and cooling system is available.  All heat exchangers are designed and built to ASME code standards with T-316 stainless steel tubes.
