- •The idea of “back -take off” is based on the idea that , when twist is being inserted into the collected fibres , the twisting action can be used to make the fibres brush the technique therefore assumes that the large trash particles are removed prior to fibre collection in the rotor groove.
- •The basis of this technique is the direction of rotation of the yarn in the peripheral - twist zone .
- •Inward rotation , i.e. , Towards the maximum radius of rotor , pushes particles into the bottom of the groove & thus increases the rate of build-up of the dust deposits .
- • Outward rotation tends to eject particles into the rotor base & keep a cleaner groove.
- •The direction of rotation will depend on the method used to remove the formed yarn from the rotor , i.e. ,” Front take-off” - where the yarn passes through the centre of a doffing tube or “ back-take off” -where the yarn passes through the centre of the rotor base.
- • Observation has shown that the effect is independent of clockwise or anti-clockwise rotation of the rotor itself or of whether s or z twist is inserted into the yarn .
- • Other reports imply that “back take off” can present costly engineering -design & construction problems.
