Development of CIRCOT-Phoenix Charkha for spinning banana fibres

  • CIRCOT-Phoenix Charkha is a pedal driven machine for spinning coarse long-staple fibres like banana pseudo stem fibres at the cottage level.
  • This charkha can produce fairly fine yarn with sufficient uniformity from natural fibres which are otherwise difficult to spin.
  • The count of yarn produced from the charkha can be varied from 150 to 600 tex. A moderately skilled operator can produce about 4.0 Kg of yarn in a day.
