|Title:||Length Distribution of Jute Fibres at Different Preparing Stages and in Yarns|
|Authors:||Banerjee, B L|
|Abstract:||The length distributions of fibres in jute slivers at different preparing stages and in yarns have been studied using the samples of hessian warp and weft quality products collected from different manufacturing mills. The nature of change in the distribution pattern of length brought about by the processing operations has been examined both separately and in combination for the two broad categories of fibres, namely unfolded (i.e., linearly oriented) and folded (i.e. disoriented). The proportion of folded fibres and the average value and length range of both the folded and unfolded fibres decrease from finisher carding to spinning, while the length CV of the unfolded fibres appears to have a rising trend at second drawing followed by a relatively sharp fall at finisher drawing and spinning. The drafting process seems to cause rupturing of the longer fibres of both the categories in addition to straightening of the folded ones.|
