Abstract

With this study the optimized design of a plant for the production of cotton wool with a productive capacity of 1760 ton/year has been performed. Kept account of the different processes that is necessary to perform, machineries that realize the productive processes to make have been individuated. Besides they have been considered the carding machines and particularly the Cylinder and Hat Carding machines, underlining the positive and negative sides of it by a study of the carding action performed by such machines. Finally, it has opportunely been designed the carding department. It has been performed then the sizing of the whole plant, starting with the machines choice, on the basis of the determined productive capability of the considered plant. Insofar the beating department has been designed, on the basis of workmanship demands. It has been studied the bleaching phase determining the machines that realize such process. For the drying process a study has been performed aimed to the optimal management of the thermodynamic exchange to be performed, with minimum energy cost. Finally for the wrapping phase, it has been considered a procedure that allowed the reduction at the minimum values of the encumbrance volumes of the final product. Subsequently the sizing of the stores has been realized for raw material and final products.
