Experiment Research on Effect of Airflow in Web Cleaner on Carding Force
The effect of airflow in web cleaner fitted to back plate of cylinder on carding force between cylinder and its flat is researched experimentally in carding machine. The carding force is measured by a specially designed dynamometer. Experiment results show the airflow has the influence on the carding force between cylinder and its first to seventeenth flat in the side of taker-in, of which carding force of first five flats has being more influenced by the airflow. As the airflow rate increases, maximum and average carding force of first five flats increase gradually. The airflow is helpful to fibre ascending along needle on the clothing of cylinder and makes the carding force larger. This is a fundamental reason that the airflow increasing makes carding force bigger.
