• 1. 10/27/13 TEXTILE CALCULATIONS TEXTILE CALCULATIONS FIBRE FINENESS, YARN COUNTS AND CONVERSIONS Micronaire Value (Cotton) : The unit is micrograms per inch. The average weight of one inch length of fibre, expressed in micrograms(0.000001 gram). Denier (Man-Made Fibres) : Weight in grams per 9000 meters of fibre. Micron (Wool) : Fineness is expressed as fibre diameter in microns(0.001mm) Conversions: · Denier = 0.354 x Micronaire value · Micronaire value = 2.824 x Denier YARN COUNTS It is broadly classified into; 1. DIRECT SYSTEM 2. INDIRECT SYSTEM INDIRECT SYSTEM · English count (Ne) · French count(Nf) · Metric count(Nm) · Worsted count Metric system: Metric count(Nm) indicates the number of 1 kilometer(1000 meter) lengths per Kg. Nm = length in Km / weight in kg (or) Nm = length meter / weight in grams DIRECT SYSTEM · Tex count · Denier file:///D:/textile cal/TEXCALTEXT detail.mht 1/15

The length at the front roll is taken as 100%. For example 5% twist contraction means, the yarn length on the bobbin is 95% of the length at the file:///D:/textile cal/TEXCALTEXT detail.mht 5/15
• 6. 10/27/13 TEXTILE CALCULATIONS front roll. = Yarn count at front roll - yarn count at bobbin ------------------------------------------------------------ x 100 Yarn count at front roll (14) TC% (15) Example of twist contraction given yarn; Count on bobbin = 10s Twist contraction = 5% 10 x 1.00 Yarn count at front roll = -------------- = 10.53s 95% (16) Mechanical draft is always greater than actual draft in ring spinning? It is necessary to draft the roving to a finer yarn count at front roll that what is to be bobbin. Because due to twist contraction of yarn, the count of yarn on bobbin becomes coarser than the count of yarn at front roller.
