Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR PRODUCING COMPRESSED FIBERS
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE PRODUCTION DE FIBRES COMPRIMEES
Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus and method for producing strapless bales of highly compressible textile fibers is disclosed, wherein a compressed block of the fibers (F') is ejected and expanded into a flexible bag (30). The apparatus includes a supply chamber (10) for supplying loose fibers to a tramping chamber (16) which is stationary. A ram assembly (18) repeatedly tramps the fibers to form a compacted fiber mass which is then formed into a compressed fiber block within a stationary compression chamber disposed in fiber transfer relation to the stationary tramping chamber. The compressed fiber block is ejected transverse to the compression chamber through an ejection sleeve about which an oversized flexible bag (30) is fitted.
(FR)
L'invention se rapporte à un procédé et à un appareil de production de bottes non sanglées de fibres textiles fortement comprimées, d'où un bloc comprimé de fibres (F') est éjecté dans un sac souple (30) dans lequel il est dilaté. L'appareil comprend une chambre d'alimentation (10) envoyant des fibres lâches dans une chambre de tassement (16) fixe. Un ensemble piston-plongeur (18) tasse les fibres de manière répétitive pour former une masse fibreuse compacte qui est ensuite transformée en un bloc de fibres comprimées à l'intérieur d'une chambre de compression fixe placée en relation de transfert avec la chambre de tassement fixe. Le bloc de fibres comprimées est éjecté transversalement par rapport à la chambre de compression dans un manchon autour duquel est fixé un sac souple surdimensionné (30).
