The idea of using the principle of vacuum cleaner to collect the cotton
is not new. It is described in the literature on
cotton pickers. There are U.S. Pat started
the last century on this issue. However, until now the idea of
replace manual labor in the cotton harvest is important.
In addition, the technology is sucking cotton from the open
boxes to require prior removal of leaves from
the bush. They do not interfere with the process and are not captured by the flow
air along with the fiber. This makes pneumatic assembly
particularly valuable for the environment as chemical removal
cotton leaves to the mechanical assembly of cotton
classical spindle machines causing terrible damage to
natural environment and people. In the early 90-ies
century, we had made an attempxtexperimental
verification process. And to the great joy of the participants, it
failed. Cotton is easily sucked out of the boxes and going
in the hopper car. Of course the design of our machines have
a lot of technical flaws, but the idea worked.
At the present level of technology is not superfluous to
spend some of the funds, and to investigate
all the advantages and disadvantages of pneumatic technology for collecting
cotton, as undeservedly forgotten. The design of our machines
(See fig.) Was performed on the basis of the motorcycle IZH-Jupiter.
