Effect of opening roller speed, drums speed difference and suction air pressure on properties of open-end friction spun polyester and acrylic yarns
The present paper is concerned with the influence of opening roller speed, drum speed difference and suction air pressure on properties of polyester and acrylic open-end friction spun yarns. The results shows that the opening roller speed and the suction air pressure have considerable influence on the characteristics of polyester and acrylic open-end friction spun yarns. In case of polyester yarns the unevenness, imperfection and hairiness decreases and the yarn tenacity increases with the increase in opening roller speed and suction air pressure. However for acrylic yarns the unevenness and imperfections decreases and tenacity increases with the increase in opening roller speed and suction air pressure.
