Project Number: 3050-41000-009-47-N
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Apr 1, 2012
End Date: Mar 31, 2017
To improve the productivity of roller ginning plants by developing more effective methods of separating and reclaiming the carryover components of un-ginned seed cotton and cottonseed on a high-speed roller gin stand.
A unit-type reclaimer (as opposed to the current batch-type reclaimer) with alternative machine components will be tested to separate and reclaim the carryover on a high-speed roller gin stand. The first reclaimer will be attached to an individual high-speed roller gin stand. Depending on test results, unit reclaimer's application could later be expanded to battery applications.
