Relationships Between Cotton Fiber Properties and Mill Processing Results from Bale to Card Sliver
Apr 2, 2019


The inherent fiber properties of cotton affect the ultimate utility value of the textile end product and the processing efficiency at each stage of converting fiber to fabric. Opening, cleaning and carding in particular, dictate the quality and productivity levels that can be achieved in manufacturing carded and combed cotton yarns through their effect on nep removal, cleaning efficiency and short fiber content. This study was to identify and describe variables that have a statistically significant impact on opening, cleaning and carding. This paper describes the efficiency of nep removal, trash removal and short fiber content from opening to card sliver for short/medium staple Upland cotton and for LS/ELS cotton.
