Assignment 6:Yarn Doubling

1. A Two-For-One twister is running at 9,000 rpm with 96% efficiency, and producing 4-ply yarn
from 60 denier polyester multi-filament yarn, 90 Ne dyed cotton single yarn, 15 tex grey combed
cotton single yarn and 50 Nm 100% wool single yarn with 900 twist per meter in plied yarn.
What is the production rate of the machine in terms of kg/100sp/hr if the twist contraction is 2%?

Solution:

TFO running speed = 9,000 rpm

Twisting rpm = 18000 rpm

Yarn twist = 900 t/m

3 ply

(i) 60 denier ; = 88.59 Ne

(ii) 15 tex ; = 39.37 Ne

(iii) 50 Nm ; 50 0.59 = 29.5 Ne

(iv) 90 Ne

Delivery speed = m/min = 20 m/min

resultant count of 4-ply yarn before twist contraction

= 0.0132 + 0.0169 + 0.0282 + 0.01 = 0.0817

NR = 12.24 Ne or 48.24 tex

NR after twist contraction = 12.24 x 0.98 = 12.0 Ne or 49.23tex


Productivity = kg/100sp/hr = 5.67 kg/100sp/hr
