Özet

This theoretical study is intended to investigate the performance of a saw-gin ginning machine with special reference to separator units. For this purpose, a theoretical model of the separator units of a particular saw-gin machine has been developed by introducing the non-dimensional parameters defining the mechanical operating conditions, and we have also outlined a design procedure whereby the cotton flow rate and loss of cotton can be estimated in such a system. This paper forms part of an extended theoretical investigation into the separator units of saw gin machines; here, only the flow rate estimation results obtained for the first unit of the separator have been discussed.
