Abstract
Cotton dust control studies carried out by North Carolina State University since 1973 are reviewed. The purpose of the investigations has been to examine means for reducing respirable dust emission during carding, as well as to evaluate the relative merits of various dust sampling devices. Included in the topics reviewed are the effects of lint cleaners at the gin, experimental feeder/cleaners at the gin, steaming cotton at the gin, cleaning pneumafil filter, efficacy of cottonmaster as a cleaning device, effect of washing cotton before processing, humidifiers as sources of respirable dust, additives as dust suppressants, electrostatic precipitator aircleaning devices, particle size distribution of cotton dust, evaluation of short term samplers, and particle sizing via light scattering.
