Hosiery plants

Strengths and Characteristics

The hosiery sector requires an adequate technological extraction system for air coming from hosiery production machinery.


The extracted air is sent towards the static filtration system, suitable for retaining all filaments rejected by the process. The flow therefore enters the integrated air system.

The special technologies for supply air treatment guarantees optimal thermo-hygrometric conditions in the production department.

The extraction fan is equipped with an inverter, which varies the air flow rate based on the number of machines running to obtain 30% energy savings per year.

The conditioning system is complementary to the extraction system and guarantees maintenance of ideal temperature and humidity conditions all year round.

The system includes sections for:

  • Ventilation
  • Humidification
  • Dehumidification
  • Heating
  • Cooling

Canalair also offers support structures for lighting and utilities to production machinery.
