Beaters used in Blow Room Machine

There are mainly three (3) types of beaters used in blow room and they are explained below- 
1. Porcupine, 
2. Bladed beater: Beater arms (Multiple bladed beaters), 
3. Kirschner beater

1. Porcupine:
The strikers are arranged at different angles to cover the total width of the m/c in one revolution of the beater. Good opening beater and suitable for long-staple cotton. It separates the fibres by the striker. Simultaneously cleaning is also done.

2. Bladed beater: Beater arms (Multiple bladed beaters):
The beater bars arranged parallel to the supporting shaft and held by four or five cast-iron arms. Opening and cleaning effect of this type of beater is small. It is hardly found a row, it is only in the form of the double beater scutcher.

  2. Three bladed beaters.

Two bladed beaters:
- Two blades are arranged in both sides and equal distance of shaft.
- Revolution per minute 800-850.
- To clean broken seeds or heavy impurities of fibres.

3. Kirschner beater:
In this type of beater, instead of beater bars, pinned bars (pinned lags) are secured to the ends of the cast-iron arms. The relatively high degree of penetration results in a good opening. Kirschner beaters were therefore often used at the last opening position in the blow room line. Modern Kirschner openers are often designed as closed rollers rather than three-armed beater units. The design is simpler and the flow conditions are more favourable.
