Abstract:

Double roller gins are commonly used in India for ginning seed cotton. But studies reveal that slow ginning rates and higher electrical consumption are the limitations of the DR gin. The main objective of present research work was to design of experiment set up of modified double roller gin by using Taguchi design method that had a higher ginning rate and less power consumption. Experiments were carried out on a specially designed modified double ginning machine experimental setup to select optimal operating parameters for existing DR gins. Seed cottons of different staple lengths were ginned at three levels of roller and moisture contents. Taguchi L9 array method revealed that a roller speed of 122 RPM and a Cotton grade A coupled with 7 % seed cotton moisture content showed the highest ginning rate with maximum savings in electric energy. Analysis of results of the power requirement for ginning the various types of cotton on the modified DR gin revealed that the saving in electrical energy ranged from 15.80 to 31.20 %. Further, the ginning rate of the modified DR gin was found to be 16 to 24.9 % higher than the existing DR gin. The fibre parameters during the experimental trial no significant differences being observed.
