List of Carding Faults in Spinning:
All the faults of carding process have pointed out in the below:

  1. Variation of sliver,
  2. Web sagging,
  3. Hole in web,
  4. Cloudy web,
  5. High nep count.
Reasons and Remedies of Carding Faults in Spinning:
1. Variation of sliver:

  • Uneven and irregular lap feed.
  • Wider setting of taker in to cylinder and feed plate to feed roller.
  • Excessive tension between calendar roller to coiler head.
  • Due to damage of calendar roller or doffer or feed plate.
  • Lap feeding should be even and regular.
  • Perfect setting should be kept at feed plate to feed roller and taker in to cylinder.
  • Required tension should be applied between calendar roller to coiler head.
  • Fault free calendar roller or feed plate or doffer should be used.
2. Web Sagging:

  • Lower amount of humidity.
  • Excessive doffer speed.
  • Tension draft lower among cylinder and doffer.
  • Humidity should be kept at 50-60%.
  • Required amount of doffer speed should be used.
  • Increasing tension draft among doffer and cylinder.
3. Hole in web:

  • Different heights of wire points.
  • Faulty wire on doffer or card.
  • Wire height should be same for all.
  • Fault free wire should be used on card or doffer.
4. Cloudy Web:

  • Wide setting among flats and cylinder.
  • Over loading of wire.
  • Defective wire on flats, doffer, taker in and cylinder.
  • Exact setting should be applied between cylinder and flats.
  • Grinding the organs of card.
  • Fault free wire should be used on doffer, cylinder, taker in and flats.
5. High nep count:

  • Too wide setting among flat and cylinder or cylinder and doffer.
  • Higher amount of relative humidity %.
  • Faulty doffer, taker in wire.
  • Improper setting among cylinder to flat and cylinder to doffer.
  • Perfect settings have to use between carding cylinder and doffer or flat and cylinder.
  • Relative humidity% should be perfect.
  • Damage free taker in or doffer wire have to use.
  • Correct setting have to applied between cylinder to doffer and cylinder to flat.
