Evaluation of Alternative Instrument Measurements for Selected Cotton Fiber Properties

Eric Hequet, Dean Ethridge, Reiyao Zhu


Relationships among alternative cotton fiber property measurements are examined, their usefulness is evaluated, and suggestions for improving them are offered. Needed changes include wider strength ranges in calibration cottons, an adequate elongation measurement, more information on length distributions, an adequate high-volume trash measurement, a focus on reference cottons for determining fineness and maturity of fibers, and a focus on exploiting the distribution information on major fiber properties.
