# Title: To calculate the cleaning efficiency of blow room line.

Objectives To understand the practical method to calculate the cleaning efficiency of blow room line. Theory:
1.

The cleaning efficiency of the blow room may be defined as the difference between the percentage of trash in the bale cotton fed to the blow room and the percentage of trash in the lap delivered expressed as percentage of trash in bale cotton.

Apparatus: Shirley analyzer machine Digital weight balance

Material to be used: Sample of bale cotton b. Sample of lap Machinery used:
a.

OHARA-HERTH b. Blow room line Method:
a.

First of all run the blow room.Then I fed the bale cotton to the 1st machine of the blow room line and collected the lap material on the last machine of the blow room. Then prepared a sample of 100 gram from bale cotton (feeding material of blow room line) with true representation of bale in the sample. Fed this sample to Shirley analyzer machine and calculated the trash percentage in the sample of bale cotton by using the standard procedure of Shirley analyzer machine. Then made a true representation sample from lap roll (100 gram)

Fed the sample to Shirley analyzer machine and calculated the trash percentage in the sample of scutcher lap.

Observations and Calculations:

Cleaning efficiency of blow room line:

Now calculate the cleaning efficiency of blow room by the formula:

Trash % in bale cotton=9.2g Trash % in lap=4.0g So by the above formula the cleaning efficiency = [(9.2-4)*100]/9.2 = 56.52% So the efficiency of cleaning of blow room is 56.52%. Result: By the formula the value of cleaning efficiency of blow room is 56.52%.

Blow room is the first department to process the cotton to make cloth. Cotton transferred to spinning industry is in bale form. So in this section cotton bales are opened, cleaned and mixed. And then transferred to next section for further process.
