Title of the Innovation: VACUUM COCOON BOILING MACHINE

Brief About Innovation

The cocoon is not softened in all the layers uniformly in open pan method of boiling which is being generally followed in the industry. Due to this the reliability is low. Silk waste generation and slubbs occurrence is high leading to poor quality yarn. To overcome the defects of open pan boiling, vacuum boiling method has been developed, wherein all the cocoon layers are uniformly softened. As water is made to pass through layers, uniformity of softening in all layers is achieved. By this, cocoon reel ability is increased and is possible to maintain the yarn denier uniformly. Slubbs are reduced thereby increasing yarn cleanness and raw silk yield is also increased.

Infrastructure needed: 

Lathe, sheet cutting, turning, welding, grinding, pressing, drilling & sheet rolling machines.
