Abstract

A cost minimization concept of heat and and energy consumption for direct dyeing process of cotton fabric coloration was experimented with triethanolamine instead of sodium carbonate in the dyebath of direct dyeing with low temperature at 30?C, medium temperature at 60?Cand high temperature at 90?Cand compared with the conventional method of direct dyeing with high temperature at 90?Cwhere an acceptable range of increasing color strength (K/S) and color difference were observed for low temperature dyeing with triethanolamine (TEA method) comparing to the conventional dyeing process of high temperature with sodium carbonate (SC method). Considering heat and energy consumption in direct dyeing of cotton fabric coloration with triethanolamine method, the low temperature dyeing cost was minimized Rs. 2.24 comparing to high temperature sodium carbonate method dyeing cost.
