Noise reduction on textile ring-spinning frames.
Stewart ND; Bailey JR
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers 1979 Jan; :1-8
Sources of noise from textile ring spinning frames are reviewed along with methods for noise reduction. Various noise sources in the spindle bobbin system, the ring traveler system, the vacuum end collection system, and the overhead traveling cleaners are described. Four modified spinning frames are discussed and tests conducted in mill trials to determine noise reduction are reviewed. Costs involved in achieving significant noise reduction are also considered. The authors conclude that three of the four spinning machines tested could achieve room noise levels at or below 90 decibels by employing the modifications tested.
