Yarn Finishing System

Yarn finishing starts after Ring Till transfer to finished godown.

Selling of yarn: Yarn is sold in a) hank form b) Cone form.

Slub Catcher setting:

Lower the count, higher the slub catcher setting gap. Slub catcher should keep clean, otherwise fluff will accumulate.

Splicing-Piecing of yarn without knotting.Done by compressor sir, Manual knotting also can be done.

Production calculation

Prod/shift in kg/m/c = Speed of Drum (rpm)*3.14()*Die of Drum (inch)*60*8*efficiency*No. of Drum 
 36*840*Count of yarn

Yarn Twist Setting:

Object: To improve the resistance of the yarn to untwisting and snarling, it is necessary to fix twist i.e. to bring the yarn into a stabilized state.

Bad/methods mostly used

  • Yarn steaming in an autoclave (with boiler) capacity up to 500 kg/batch. Allowable pressure 7kg/cm(max)
  • High frequency current by electrode with high voltage
  • Water treatment conditioning

Cone Winding
