Cotton is the seed fiber of the Gossypium plant of the Malvaceae family, native to the subtropics. The plant is shrubby and grows up to 6 meters in height in tropical regions, usually 1 to 2 meters. The flowers are creamy-white, turn deep red shortly after blooming and then wither, leaving behind small green capsules called bolls. There are cottonseeds inside the cotton bolls. The hairs on the cottonseeds grow from the epidermis of the cottonseeds and fill the interior of the cotton bolls. When the cotton bolls mature, they split open to reveal the soft fibers. The fiber is white or white with yellowish, about 2 to 4 cm (0.75~1.5 inches) long, and contains about 87~90% cellulose, 5~8% water, and 4~6% other substances. Countries with the highest cotton production include China, the United States, and India.
what cotton can do?
Cotton is one of the most important crops in the world, with large output and low production cost, making cotton products relatively cheap. Cotton fibers can be made into a variety of fabrics, from light and transparent voiles to heavy canvases and thick velveteen, suitable for all types of clothing, upholstery, and industrial fabrics. Cotton fabrics are strong and wear-resistant, can be washed and ironed at high temperatures, and are comfortable to wear due to their rapid absorption and removal of moisture. If it is required to keep warm, the surface of the fabric can be raised by brushing. Through other finishing processes, it can also make cotton fabrics anti-fouling, waterproof and mildew-proof; improve the wrinkle resistance of fabrics, so that cotton fabrics are less ironed or even do not need ironing; reduce the shrinkage of fabrics during washing, so that the shrinkage rate does not exceed 1%.
The cotton baler machine solves the problem of cotton baling
When cotton farmers store cotton, they often rack their brains because the cotton is easy to expand and is relatively fluffy. It is very inconvenient to transport. Therefore, the cotton baler came into being. The cotton baler machine of Shuliy Machinery Equipment Co., Ltd. is a kind of hydraulic baler that compresses cotton into pieces by compression. It is now widely used in the agricultural and animal husbandry industry and has played a huge role in the protection of the environment and resources. The cotton baler is used to press the cotton into high-density cakes, which can greatly reduce the transportation and storage space. The processed cotton is easy to store and transport, it is very suitable for individual cotton farmers and cotton factories, and the production cost is low.
Other applications of cotton baler machine
The cotton baler machine can also be used for packaging in the recycling industry, such as woven bags, waste cartons, cans, plastic bottles, and waste tires. This baler has a wide range of uses. So this baler sells very well in our company and is applied to various industries.
