Question 49 (Textile Engineering & Fibre Science)

A rotor of 2 inch diameter is spinning a yarn of 16s Ne. If the twist multiplier is 5 and the fibre linear density is 0.1 tex, the average fibre flow through the transport channel, to the nearest integer will be __3__.

[Show Answer]

Write Here

Given in the question
Diameter of rotor=2 inch

Count of the yarn=16s Ne

Twist multiplier(TM)=5

Linear density of fibre=0.1 tex

Average fibre flow through the transport channel=?


TPI=TM\sqrt count

TPI=5\sqrt 16

TPI=5 \times 4

TPI=20 (Answer)

By unitary rule-
1 inch have=20 turns

\pi 2 inch have=20\times \pi \times 2

1 meter have=125.6/39.34


Average fibre flow through the transport channel=3 (Answer)
