ATIRA to help cut power consumption in cotton gins

May '18
The Ahmedabad Textile Industry’s Research Association (ATIRA) is working towards developing a technology to help cotton gins cut their power consumption by up to 40 per cent. This research and development project, spanning a year, was given to the association for the improvement of cotton ginning by the state government’s industries and mines department.

The technology being used in cotton gins currently is over 30 years old and needs to be updated, said RM Sankar, ATIRA’s principal scientific officer. He said that the complex ginning machinery has multiple moving parts and the association is working towards reducing the number of these parts to reduce power consumption by up to 40 per cent.

Sankar added that the decrease in moving parts will also reduce the number of spare parts used in the machinery, thus reducing the maintenance cost by close to 40 per cent.

ATIRA researchers are aiming to complete the project within 10 months, according to a leading daily. Besides making machinery maintenance relatively easy, the new upgrade will also help increase production, as per the scientists.

ATIRA officials estimate that the production speed of cotton gins will increase from 70 kg per hour currently to 90 kg per hour after installing the upgraded technology. (KD)
