Trützschler’s new pre-cleaner CL-X increases productivity and lowers energy consumption while treating cotton before it is processed in mixers and fine cleaners. The pre-cleaner saves up to 30% in energy and features an air separator to reduce the transport air and limit exhaust air. The CL-X also has a maximum continuous production of 1,600 kilograms per hour, matching the production rate of two CL-P models.
The CL-X has been designed for separation and gentler tuft handling. It has a 2.60 m long cleaning section for a maximum degree of opening and cleaning tufts with an integrated waste control feature for automatic adjustment of waste excretion, reducing fiber loss in production.
