Abstract

This paper presents the technology of production of synthetic fibrous materials from PET-raw by vertical blowing method. Fibre production by vertical blowing method is accompanied by complex and specific phenomena; therefore, development of new progressive technologies, high-performance machines and units for producing such materials is impossible without process modelling, which can significantly reduce the number of natural tests, cost and designing time and select optimal operating modes. Molten material motion in the melting unit of the hydrostatic type is determined by means of Poiseuille formula. Furthermore, the paper has proven that the melting unit has the greatest impact on process productivity by means of outlet radius and the pressure change of compressed air acting on the molten material surface. Increase in the height of the molten material column in the main cylindrical chamber of melting unit also leads to an increase in process productivity.

Abstract

This paper presents the technology of production of synthetic fibrous materials from PET-row by vertical blowing method. The formation of fibers from the melt of thermoplastics by vertical blowing method is accompanied by complex and specific phenomena, so creation of new progressive technologies, high-performance machines and units for producing such materials is impossible without process modeling, which can significantly reduce the number of natural tests, cost and development time and choose optimal operating modes. The motion of the molten material in the melting unit of the hydrostatic type is determined from the Poiseuille formula. Also in the article proved that the greatest impact on process productivity is made by the melting unit, exactly by outlet radius and the pressure change of compressed air, acting on the molten material surface. The increase in the height of the molten material column in the main cylindrical chamber of melting unit also leads to increase of process productivity.
