Effect of Electrostatic Web-Cleaner on Card Sliver Quality
To find out the effect of the electrostatic web-cleaner installed on the front plate of carding machine on card sliver quality, the sliver produced under different voltages and gauges of electrostatic plate was tested with Uster AFIS. The results show that card sliver quality can be improved when the gauge and voltage are appropriate. When the gauge is 1 mm, parameters of short fiber content, nep content, impurity content are better at a voltage of 1500 V than those of other voltages; when the gauge is 2 mm, a voltage of 500 V or 3500 V is advantageous to improve the comprehensive quality of card sliver (except for impurity content parameter); when the gauge is adjusted to 3 mm, the impurity content is decreased at 1000 V and the nep content is decreased at 2500 V, but the improvement on card sliver quality is not perfect.
