​​​​If "sticky cotton" is not detected in time and properly handled, it can generate excessive maintenance costs in spinning, affect the production and compromise yarn quality.

Mesdan-Lab introduces the CONTEST®-S​

  • fully automatic high volume testing equipment designed to detect, measure, classify and grade raw cotton stickiness (honeydew/sugar content)
  • unique equipment providing cotton stickiness risk probability on the basis of its grade enabling spinners to anticipate proper actions (how to process & blend different cotton bales)
  • ensures fast testing and very repeatable and consistent results
  • Precious tool for spinning mills, cotton traders, textile institutes, R&D labs and other cotton grading, arbitration and classification institutions.

    CONTEST®​-S  is on display at ITMA (Barcelona, 2019, June 20-26) at the Mesdan stand n. A210b in H7 hall, together with the full range of laboratory equipment for spinning. Mesdan's yarn splicer are showcase as well.
