Absorbent Cotton also known as Surgical Cotton or Cotton Wool is mainly used for medical purposes in hospitals, nursing homes, dispensaries etc., Because of high fluid absorbency power, it is better known as absorbent cotton. The absorbent cotton should be chemically inert and soft to give maximum protection and should not cause irritation. These properties can be achieved by manufacturing the product as per standard method of manufacture.

The raw cotton is processed by series of steps which render the cotton hydro-phallic in character and free from external impurities needed to be fit for use in surgical dressings and personal hygiene. Absorbent Cotton is also used for making conventional type of Sanitary napkins or pads besides medical purposes. And fairly good quality of cotton wool is consumed in beauty parlours for removing make up and dirt etc.

With the development of medical facilities and growing awareness towards personal hygiene, the absorbent cotton industry registered steady growth rate in past and is picking up pace with the spread of education and upward economic growth of towns and villages. The Ahmedabad based KB Corporation, set up way back in 1967, has specialised in manufacturing of machinery for processing of raw cotton in to surgical cotton.

Amongst the surgical cotton process machineries, manufactured by KB Corporation are; High Pressure Wide Mouth Kier (Vertical), Hydro-Extractor (Centrifuge) machine, Wet Cotton Fibre Opener and Continuous Cotton Fibre Dryer. The High Pressure Wide Mouth Kier (Vertical) machine is basically to add more absorbency into the cotton, clean the foreign particles and provides whiteness to the cotton by way of bleaching it.

The Hydro-Extractor (Centrifuge) machine is used in the process to extract excess liquor from the cotton. The Wet Cotton Fibre Opener is used to open the lumps of cotton and the Continuous Cotton Fibre Dryer is a dryer with steam heater to dry the cotton uniformly. All its commissioning and installation activities are supported with excellent after-sales service provided by its own committed team of experienced service engineers so as to ensure the best possible customer satisfaction.

In 1976 it received a gold medal from 'The Association of Merchants (India) Bombay', for import substitution in manufacture of Drum Type Nylon Tow Washing Machine and was also awarded a bronze trophy by the Government of India once again in 1976 for the same machine.
