HVI Versus Individual Instruments: Fiber Quality Evaluations

J. C. Palmer, H. B. Cooper, J. Pellow, K. McRae, D. Anderson


Fiber samples of six cotton varieties were evaluated for length, uniformity, strength, elongation, and micronaire by a modern HVI classing line and by individual instruments. Both the HVI line and the individual instruments ranked the six cottons similarly for all fiber properties except elongation percentage.

In a related comparison, fiber strength measured by the HVI line and by the stelometer was correlated to yarn strength. A stronger correlation was found to exist between yarn strength and fiber strength measured by the stelometer than by HVI classing.
