Schlumberger Touts Process Improvements With Era

N. Schlumberger, France, reports its era combing machine, unveiled at ITMA 2003, achieves improved results compared with conventional combing machines. Wool tops exhibit 50 percent less straw and neps, and 25 percent higher production 2.5 times the micron at 260 nips per minute (nips/min) in terms of kilograms per hour when processed using era. In recombing, era removes almost all of the small and micro neps, and production totals 2.5 to three times the micron at 260 nips/min.
