Abstract: front page image
(EN)A system and method are provided for cleaning fiber. Included is a structure (10) with a basket (30) pivotally coupled thereto. The basket (30) is adapted for receiving fiber therein. In use, particles are removed from the fiber upon rotation of the basket (30). In another embodiment, a system and method are provided for cleaning fiber utilizing just a basket (30) for receiving fiber therein, and a blower (70) for blowing the fiber in the basket (30) to remove particles therefrom.

Ledit panier est conçu de façon à recevoir une fibre. Lors de la rotation du panier, la fibre est débarrassée des particules. Dans un autre mode de réalisation, le système et le procédé permettent de nettoyer une fibre uniquement à l'aide d'un panier destiné à recevoir ladite fibre et d'une soufflante qui, dans le panier, débarrasse ladite fibre des particules.
