Quality of incoming raw material to central sliver plant

QUALITY OF INCOMING RAW MATERIAL TOCENTRAL SLIVER PLANT

  • Test of raw cotton in terms of physical parameters

    and accept if comparable with norms

  • Careful transportation & storage of cotton bales

  •   Check sliver or roving parameters i. e

    Count and count CV%

    Trash % & Neps


Process control in spinning prof r chattopadhyay iit delhi

  • Checks on material handling during packaging and

    loading on trucks

    - Transfer sliver into polythene bags

    - Put roving bobbins into polythene bags

    - Transport sliver cans, polythene bags containing sliver or roving on to the trucks.

    - Properly cover sliver cans, polythene bags

    containing sliver or roving on trucks


Quality of raw material received by khadi institution

QUALITY OF RAW MATERIAL RECEIVED BYKHADI INSTITUTION

  • Checks on material handling during Unloading from

    trucks

  • - Careful unloading of packages

  • - Careful internal transportation to avoid damage

  • - Proper storage and segregation of sliver/ roving to avoid accidental mixing

  • Checks on delivered sliver / roving

    - Weighing of packages

    - Cross checking of average count


Distributuon of roving or sliver to the spinners

DISTRIBUTUON OF ROVING OR SLIVER TO THE SPINNERS

- Ensure that the sliver or roving corresponds to the count to be spun.

–  - The package is covered in polyethylene sheet.

In- Instruction about careful handling of package during way back to village.


Charkha spinning guidelines

CHARKHA SPINNING GUIDELINES

  • Work practice related

  • Running of Charkha

  • - Run at a slow speed in the beginning and then raise speed and maintain speed at a convenient level.

  • - Cover the charkha once spinning is over.

  •  - The broken end should be pieced (joined) properly. A knot is to be avoided as it becomes too large with respect to the yarn diameter, which deteriorates fabric appearance


Process control in spinning prof r chattopadhyay iit delhi

  • Lea Making

  • -All the sections of the lea should be made from same yarn count. 

  • -The end of the yarn should be inserted in to the inner portion of the lea.  

  • -Leas should be properly stored in plastic bags or fabric bags with count wise segregation by colour mark.  

  • -If possible, lea bundles should be segregated while storing according to the type of fibres used or count to avoid accidental mixing.


Process control in spinning prof r chattopadhyay iit delhi

  • Maintenance related

  • -Follow a specified maintenance schedule in terms

  • of cleaning and oiling.

  • -Top roller pressure should be checked at regular

  • intervals.

  • -Check the condition of the aprons and driving belts (mall) and adjust if necessary.

  • Parameters selection

  • - Select parameters based on past experience that suits the raw material.

Detection of shift in yarn count:

Example:

Nominal Count = 20 Nm

Average weight of lea = 50 gm

Count CV % = 10

S.D. of count = 5gm

Warning limit = Mean  2  S.D. = 50  10

= 60 gm and 40 gm

Action limit = Mean  32  S.D. = 50  15

= 65gm and 35gm

  • WHAT ACTION IS TO BE TAKEN

  • For case I

  • -Wrong Draft Change Pinion ( DCP)

  • -Inadvertent change in draft constant

  • -Wrong count of sliver or roving

  • For case II

  • -Count of sliver / roving supplied is to be verified

  • -Too coarse and too fine sliver / roving are to be withdrawn

  • -Draft on charkhas are to be adjusted

Control of Count Variability

Calculation of within and between count CV


Process control in spinning prof r chattopadhyay iit delhi

REASONS FOR HIGH BETWEEN OPERATOR COUNT VARIABILITY (CVBO)

  • Difference in average hank of sliver/ roving used.

  • Difference in the total drafts in the charkhas

  • Difference in effective drafts between spindles of charkhas due to cot slippage.

  • Roving stretch

  • REASONS FOR DIFFERENCE IN AVERAGE SLIVER HANK

  • Difference in waste level and mechanical draft in card breaker or finisher draw frame.

  • DIFFERENCE IN AVERAGE ROVING HANK

    • Difference in sliver hank.

    • Draft difference in speed frames.

    • Differences in waste level in card.


  • Process control in spinning prof r chattopadhyay iit delhi

    • DIFFERENCE IN AVERAGE DRAFT IN CHARKHAS

    • Wrong draft constant in charkha or wrong change pinions

    • Difference in effective draft within a charkha

    • -Slippage of top rollers, inadequate roller pressure.

    • ROVING STRETCHING

    • Inadequate roving twist, low inter fibre cohesion (specially when fibres are short),defective bobbin holder


    Yarn uniformity unevenness

    YARN UNIFORMITY / UNEVENNESS

    1. A routine check on all the samples received may not

    be practicable.

    2. Only when yarn samples for any new lot arrives , the test can be carried out by randomly selecting 30 leas from as many operators as possible.


    Reasons for uneven yarn

    REASONS FOR UNEVEN YARN

    • Incorrect setting of break draft on D/F, S/F or charkha.

    • Inadequate top roller pressure.

    • Wear/damaged apron or cots.

    • Eccentric top roller y in charkha.

    • High short fiber percentage in sliver or roving.

    • Too wide setting in the front zone of charkha.

    • Slipping apron.


    Yarn appearance

    YARN APPEARANCE

    • Subjective assessment based on visual check of yarn boards on yarns received from operators when fresh yarn lots are received from them for a new mixing .

    • Maintain a record according to operator ID

      REASON FOR POOR APPEARANCE

    • High yarn unevenness

    • Many excessively severe thick, thin places and neps in the yarn

    • Presence of too many impurities like seed coat, leaves, stalks etc in the yarn


    Corrective actions to be taken

    CORRECTIVE ACTIONS TO BE TAKEN

    • Check the overall condition of the charkha and roller setting

    • Replacement of defective drafting rollers or aprons

    • Cleaning of accumulation of stray fibres on drafting elements, ring, travelers, gears etc should be avoided.

    • Roller slippage because of low pressure or presence of oil on roller surface is to be avoided.

    •  Neps in sliver to be maintained as per the norms

    •  Cleanliness of the sliver

    UAL = 1000 + 3120 = 1360

    UWL= 1000 + 2 120 = 1240

    LAL = 1000 - 3 120 = 640

    LWL= 1000- 2 120 = 760


    Process control in spinning prof r chattopadhyay iit delhi

    Action to be taken

    Case I: Points fall below the lower Action Limit or continues to fall in between Warning and Action Limit for many operators.

    Case II: Points are distributed with a wide scatter.

    Case I: A repeat check on the yarn supplied by the operator whose estimated CSP value fall below the action limit is to be performed. At least 6 leas are to be tested and the average is to be found out. If the average is found to be still lower, then remedial measures should be taken.


    Process control in spinning prof r chattopadhyay iit delhi

    POSSIBLE REASONS FOR LOW AVERAGE CSP

    -Inadequate twist in the yarn.

    -Finer yarn count.

    -Weak fibres in mixing.

    Twist and count testing of the same are to be performed to find out whether the twist is really low or the count is fine. The lower twist could be attributed to:

    Lower spindle speed due to slippage, which can be due to

    Loose driving cord of spindles.

    Accumulation of oil/grease on cord driving the spindles (mall).


    Process control in spinning prof r chattopadhyay iit delhi

    Reasons for finer yarn

    -Higher total draft.

    -The finer sliver/roving supplied.

    If count and twist are as per nominal value but CSP is still found to be less, inadvertently a sliver/ roving may have been supplied from a mixing in which the fibres are intrinsically weak.

    Reasons for high strength variation

    –Intermittent slippage of top roller in the charkhas.

    –Variability in between yarn count produced on

    different charkhas.
