CIRCOT-Precision Lint Opener Inaugurated by ASRB Ex Chairman Dr C D Mayee

CIRCOT-Precision Cotton Lint Opener was recently launched by ASRB ex-chairman Dr CD Mayee in an inaugural function at factory premises in Hingna Industrial Area, Nagpur on August 08, 2016. The machine has been designed and developed jointly by CIRCOT, Mumbai and M/s Precision Tooling Engineers, Nagpur in PPP mode. This machine addresses the technology gap that long existed in the HVI testing laboratories where, in absence of right kind of equipment, trash analyser has been widely used for opening of cotton lint samples in testing fibre fineness. In case of trash analyser the more aggressive and excessive opening is achieved by saw band cylinder that adversely affects the micronaire value (fineness) and other fibre quality parameters. The speed of opening of samples by trash analyser machines is also very slow and it does not match with the handling capacity of HVI machine, which many times results in a tendency of testing samples without opening giving erroneous fineness values.The development of the CIRCOT PRECISION LINT OPENER comes as a great relief to the testing laboratories who now have the technological option to get the desired amount of lint opening with less time per sample opening and without any quality deterioration, which is very important in determining the market value of cotton. Many industry personnel were present on the occasion including Dr. M. K. Sharma, CEO, Ms. Bajaj Steel Industries Limited, Nagpur, Shri Rajiv Dubey, CEO, M/s. Sri Bhagirath Textiles Limited, Nagpur, Shri J. P. Mahajan, GM, Maharashtra Cotton Federation, Nagpur, Shri Rahul Bharatwal, President, CIS Laboratory, Nagpur and representatives from M/s. Ankur Seeds Pvt. Ltd, Nagpur.
