Detection and removal of contamination in raw cotton
BMS is proud to introduce the CottonSorter, a real time system for the detection and removal of contamination from raw cotton in the blow line. All unwanted material that differs from the cotton throughput is detected by ultra-fast CCD cameras and removed by means of high speed air guns.
It is very easy to install the CottonSorter in an existing opening line. The system is installed in the pipeline that transports the cotton tufts from the bale opener. The cotton flow through the machine is straight. No need to add fan capacity to elevate the cotton and drop it through the inspection zone.
The CottonSorter provides the means to safeguard a high and consistent quality level, regardless of operator practices. The early removal of contamination results in an improved and consistent quality level, less customer complaints and a higher efficiency on OE machines and winders due to a lower number of foreign fiber cuts by the yarn clearers.
