A lot of entrepreneurs stepping into the cotton processing industry do not have adequate knowledge about ginning principles and the technologies available for them. They often go to the nearest Cotton Ginning Machine Suppliers and buy one without considering all the variables. This results in poor quality and quantity of fiber produced. Also, the value of the machine bought is also not realized owing to the unsuitability. The main factors to consider before making a purchase have been listed hereunder. Take a look…
Fiber Length: Saw Gin can be preferred for fibers measuring less than 28mm in length but for all varieties above this length, Double Roller or McCarthy Single Roller Gins should be used. For longer fibers, saw gin is highly inappropriate as it will surely damage the length. Amongst the two suitable options, Double Roller Ginning Machine is more cost-effective and preferred over the single roller type. In some cotton types like black seed cotton, both the techniques are applicable and rotobar will also give good results.
Presence of Trash Contents: If you are dealing with machine picked cotton in which the trash content is high, you would need to make use of additional cleaning equipment before using the Single Roller or Double Roller Cotton Ginning Machine. If additional equipment are not available, make use of Saw Gin as it can crush all the trash material. In other technologies, the trash can congest the seed clearance grid.
Moisture Content : Saw Gins are able to deal with moisture content up to 8% and if it exceeds, the fiber quality will be affected. In cases with 10-11% moisture, make use of Roller Cotton Ginning Machines. If the moisture goes beyond this level, adopt the drying process and bring the level down to 10% before proceeding with the ginning process.
Harvesting Methods: With handpicked cotton, the amount of trash content is lower and you can use Double Roller or McCarthy Single Roller without any hesitation. But when the cotton has been machine picked and has higher amount of trash, use of Saw Gin and Rotobar can be considered. However, since these techniques can diminish the quality of fiber, it is better to first clear the trash using additional equipment and then use Roller Gin.
Based on these parameters, you can select the right Ginning Machine. Also, you can consider buying a Cotton Ginning and Pressing Machine which streamlines the work for you.
