The new VAPORADA is an innovated Continuous Yarn Shrinking and Bulking Machine with independent heads suitable to shrink and bulk a very wide range of hand-knitting yarns with counts from Nm 0.5 to Nm 8. Thanks to its innovated heads, it is possible to obtain excellent results with a short steaming chamber. The new VAPORADA can be linked with cone or cake winders (spirowaps) according to the customer’s choice.

The yarn is layed in a particular “tube” shape on the woven belt and then conveyed into the steaming chamber. Here the steam acts both inside and outside the “tube”, shrinking and bulking the yarn (please see the attached photo). The steam is injected under pressure in the steaming chamber; when the preselected temperature is reached, the electric-valve closes the immission of the steam. Then the bulked yarn pass through the cooling zone and then is ready to be wound on cones or in cakes (spirowaps). A set of photocells sincronizes the VAPORADA to the cone or cake (spirowaps) winders.
