Riopele order new Monforts Montex stenter installation

Having invested in the largest Monforts Montex stenter installation in Europe three years ago, Portugal-based Riopele has placed a new order for a further machine of similar dimensions to be delivered before the end of 2018. This next ten-chamber Monforts Montex stenter, currently being built, will be operational in 2019, as part of a new €10 million investment plan.

A long-standing partner with Monforts, Riopele has a variety of the German machine builder’s equipment, and dominating the finishing department is the Montex stenter, with 12 chambers and a full installation length of some 70-metres. The line was installed as part of a €14 million investment programme between 2014-16. This stenter combines production efficiency with excellent energy efficiency, ensuring a continuous production flow with a positive impact in terms of delivery time.

The machine boasts of unique features designed according to their specifications. These include special J-boxes at the stenter’s inlet and outlet, for the gentle storage of a high volume of material. The special heat recovery system was also tailored specifically to the company’s needs.
