It is concluded from the present study that the unevenness or linear mass irregularity in the yarn structure affects the mechanical properties of yarn and their PC materials.
Feeders have vertical rotating discs that create a product lockup zone conveying material smoothly from storage hopper to discharge outlet, achieving true linear mass flow.
While within the duct, the material "locks up" and moves in "plug flow," moving smoothly from storage hopper to discharge outlet, achieving true linear mass flow, producing excellent linearity and breakthrough accuracy levels.
