SAMPLE PREPERATION - contAMINATION / micRONAIRE
FIBER TEST IN CONTAMINATION, MICRONAIRE AND MATURITY MODULE
This module serves for the examination of raw cotton up to sliver.
Neps, seed coat neps, trash and stickiness are tested and classified according to size and quantity. The Micronaire and maturity module checks the cotton Micronaire and the maturity separately from the classification module (raw cotton only).
3.5 g of air-conditioned cotton is rolled by hand into a 25 to 30 cm long, even ribbon.
The ribbon is placed on a conveyor belt and pulled in; the actual test procedure starts. The test values are automatically analyzed and are shown in a table on the FIBERMAP monitor including all standard statistical evaluations.
