The Montex 8500TT stenter is intended for the preparation of filter materials and offers a stenter frame for the drying and finishing of woven and non-woven materials, high stretching devices in length and weft direction up to 10 000 N and with high operating temperature up to 320°C.
It also offers coating and printing heads for the application of chemical compounds as an option, together with Padders and Foam-Padders for foam and liquor applications. In addition, belt dryers for both heavy and light materials are available and the stenter features chains with pins and clips or the combination of both.
Calenders for the flattening and compaction of the filter materials can be added offering working widths from 80 cm up to 7 m. Explosion proof versions and dryers are available for treatment with solvents.








According to Jürgen Hanel, Head of Technical Textiles, Monforts developed the first stenter with the possibility of thermosetting PTFE without oil greasing in the stenter chain and in the width adjustment. This protects workers and the environment from harmful oil vapors and keeps the filter material clean.
