Recycling installation for reusable waste

As mentioned above, a considerable amount of waste can be reused in the same mill by feeding it through a  bale opener ( waste opener) into the normal blowroom line. Beyond that, in rotor spinning it is common to spin useful yarns from waste or by adding waste to the normal raw material. Since in this case the amount of waste is larger, the admixing cannot be performed by a single waste opener; a complete feeding installation as shown in the illustration (Fig. 79) is required. Dirty waste first has to pass through a special  waste recycling plant before a portion of it (about 30 - 40% good fi bers) can be reused.
