Cleaning Cotton for Effective Rotor Spinning

R. V. Baker, J. B. Price and K. Q. Robert, Jr.


A three-year study was undertaken to provide additional information on important relationships between cotton gin and textile mill cleaning. Some effects of varying the aggressiveness of seed cotton cleaning, lint cleaning, and mill cleaning on fiber properties, rotor spinning performance, and rotor-spun yarn quality are presented. This study also provided important insights into the effects of previous cleaning history and nonlint content on the cleaning performance of mill cleaning and carding equipment.
