The spunlace unit, also called hydroentanglement unit, can accept a dry or wet formed continuous web. This unit can be used on a single layer or dual layer web. After the web has been hydroentangled, it can be further treated by pressing, drying, and winding.
High pressure water jets directed at the moving web accomplish the hydraulic entanglement of the web. The web is carried on a forming fabric that is supported by vacuum dewatering boxes.
The spunlace process can impart textile-like properties to a nonwoven web (softness, drape and bulk) as well increase the strength and elongation of the web.
