Xia, Zhigang and Wang, Xin and Ye, Wenxiang and Eltahir, Hafiz A. and Xu, Weilin (2012) Fiber trapping comparison of embeddable and locatable spinning with sirofil and siro core-spinning with flute pipe air suction. Textile Research Journal, 82 (12). pp. 1255-1262. ISSN 0040-5175


In this study, we compared fiber trapping of embeddable and locatable spinning (ELS) with that of sirofil and siro core-spinning with flute pipe air suction. Online pictorial analysis showed that the 3rd ELS was free of the visual fiber loss during the 1st ELS, 2nd ELS, sirofil, and siro core-spinning. This indicated the 3rd ELS possessed high ability of trapping staple fibers. Weight loss of different yarns proved that the 3rd ELS had a statistically higher fiber trapping capacity than 1st ELS, sirofil and siro core-spinning. Yarn visual appearance results showed that filaments failed to be entirely buried in the siro core-spun yarn body due to the staple fiber loss and imperfect filament tension adjustment. Poor trapping and filament fasting of staple fibers might be the reasons for more hairy siro core-spun yarn than other composite yarns. Sirofil and siro core-spun yarn had higher value of coefficient of mass variation per unit yarn length and yarn imperfections than the 3rd ELS yarn which might be probably due to their irregular fiber loss during the sirofil and siro core-spinning. The fiber loss would result in a decrease in yarn cross-section fiber utilization; therefore, sirofil, siro core-spun and the 1st ELS yarn had a statistically lower tensile tenacity than the 3rd ELS composite yarn.
