The count of yarn is defined as a number indicating its Weight. In DIRECT SYSTEM, the count is the weight of a Unit Length of yarn. For example – “TEX” is number of grams in one Kilometer Length of yarn; “DENIER” is number of grams in 9000 meters of yarn. In indirect system, the count is the number of unit of fixed length of yarn that makes a fixed weight: For Example “COTTON” is number of hanks of yarn in a Pound, “METRIC” is
number of Kilometers of yarn in one Kilogram. Irrespective of the system of count, two basic requirements for determining count are:
a) An accurate determination of Sample Length, and
b) An accurate determination of its Weight.
The method of determination of count depends to a large extent on the form in which the yarn is available for testing.
This is the latest model direct yarn count balance to evaluate yarn count in indirect system. This specially designed equipment consists of a lightweight beam pivoted on Jewel Bearings with a suspender hook at one end and a pointer at the other. The beam is initially leveled with the help of the Leveling Screw to bring the pointer against a Datum Point. A (Calibrated Rider) is suspended in the slot provided on the beam. A template is used to size the lengths of the yarn. (The Length depending upon the count system required). These sort lengths required to balance the Beam gives the count of the yarn DIRECTLY.
A TEMPLATE is provided to give lengths of yarn in ‘METRIC’, ‘COTTON’, ‘LINEN’, ‘WOOLSKIEN’, and ‘WORSTED’ counts. The Balance is housed in a beautiful Metallic Blue painted metal case having Sliding Glass doors.
Specially designed equipment to determine the count from short lengths of yarn or small pieces of fabric.
