Abstract: A new energy efficient process has been developed with solar water heating system for multiend silk reeling, and the energy consumption for cooking and reeling operations is calculated and compared with conventional process. It is found that in conventional process, on an average 570 L and 1000 L of water is consumed for cocoon cooking and reeling basins respectively for the production of 10 kg raw silk in 10 basin multiend reeling unit; hence, a huge amount of firewood is required to produce heat energy for processing. The new energy efficient process with solar water heating system yields a saving of 77.97% firewood consumption compared to conventional process.
