Figure 1 Schematic of focusing ultrasonic desizing

The bottom of the cleaning tank equipped with a heating resistance wire, the cleaning liquid can (water) for heating and temperature; fabric after a period of soaking the traction of the drive roller, by horizontal vibration head constant tension; focusing type vibration head is positioned above the fabric and immersed in water. Ultrasonic cavitation generated due to the cleaning liquid strong vibration in the vertical direction, thus the impact of the slurry on the fabric, making it fall from the fabric speed, dissolved in the cleaning solution, so as to achieve the purpose of desizing.

2 Results and discussion

2.1 desizing rate is relatively

Select a cleaning fluid temperature, generator power utilization, vibration head to the fabric of the distance and the driving drum line speed ['} 4 parameters, using L9} 34) orthogonal experimental design, the selection factors and levels shown in Table 1 .

Table 1 Factors and levels of selection

Selection of the horizontal factor

Three kinds of gray fabric by orthogonal experimental design, the best solution ultrasonic desizing, as shown in Table 2.

3 kinds of fabrics best solution ultrasonic desizing

At this time focusing ultrasonic desizing effect of ultrasonic assisted with this condition desizing effect of contrast in Table 3. Focused ultrasound desizing time was used once 5min, while ultrasonic desizing way desizing time 10minx used once

Table 3 two kinds desizing method to compare rates desizing%

Two kinds of desizing method to compare rates desizing%

Seen from Table 3, the focusing ultrasonic desizing once, had drained away at least half of the slurry surface of the cloth, the desizing effect with ultrasound-assisted alkaline desizing three times (ie, desizing time was 30min) is equivalent to the desizing times up to 3 times, the auxiliary base and the ultrasonic desizing 5 times (i.e. desizing time 50min) the effect is quite, focusing ultrasonic action than a certain time (desizing 3 times), its effect is significantly more than desizing Ultrasound-assisted alkaline desizing. The conventional method of alkaline desizing, which desizing rate of 70% -80%, as shown in Table 3, the focused ultrasonic desizing experiments, the selected fabric desizing for 3 times. Desizing focused ultrasonic drive roller when the line speed of 0.5m/min, the unit length of the fabric under the effect of the ultrasonic transducer head time of about 5s, but due to the ultrasonic vibration head up to a maximum power density of 50W / c resistance, in intensity, the ultrasound on the fabric of the slurry stripping still have a good effect.

In front of the fabric desizing, soak it first time, then start desizing. The first role of ultrasound in the slurry stripping effect is poor, the fabric is because the main function of ultrasonic waves is in addition to gas, ie excluding material in the air, the water sufficiently penetrate into the fabric interior; ultrasound Liangci time, play a major role in the ultrasonic cavitation, part slurry was stripping down; when the ultrasonic effect three times, the ultrasonic "secondary cavitation" effect makes the most of the slurry from the fabric come off, and then dissolve into water, the maximum time base desizing effect, continue to increase the number of desizing, desizing small changes, and even lower (see Figure 2), which may be due to the role of ultrasound that has been retired slurry infiltration again due to the fabric, so the fabric after ultrasound timely and adequate washing is necessary.

Ultrasonic effect on the fabric, if the relatively loose weave, ultrasonic vibration energy will penetrate the fabric part of the interstitial leaving desizing efficiency. Since B2288 weave more closely, the role of ultrasound in the fabric when the power efficiency is high, relatively speaking, fabric desizing effect is better. Figures 3 and 4 are focused through the fabric B2288 and conventional ultrasonic alkaline desizing after desizing SEM images, it can be seen, most of the pulp on the fabric has been removed, the residue attached to the surface of the fabric by the slurry thoroughly washed to remove.

2.2 Comparison of mechanical properties of the fabric desizing

Parameters in the best desizing, desizing focused ultrasonic and conventional alkaline desizing, desizing fabrics ultrasonic assisted mechanical properties are shown in Table 40 Table 43 Comparison of different methods of fabric desizing Comparison of mechanical properties shown in Table 4, three kinds The resulting fabric desizing method breaking strength are: focusing ultrasonic desizing> General alkaline desizing> ultrasonic assisted alkaline desizing. Focused ultrasound desizing the fabric strength is significantly higher than the latter two, which is due to focusing ultrasonic desizing shorter duration of action of the fabric, thereby reducing the potential damage to the fabric, and after the focusing type ultrasonic elongation of the fabric has improved to some extent. Ultrasound-assisted alkaline desizing resulting fabric breaking strength and elongation at break is significantly lower, the reason may be due to the fabric under the action of alkali puffing swelling, making the fiber surface defects or cracks are more original exposed, when the ultrasonic effect on fibers, the inevitable defects in the material of the original stress strain energy. 'E} i}' ultrasonic energy transmitted portion is bound into the surface of the crack required for expansion of new energy, causing crack, resulting in fiber surface Like corroded same.

2.3 desizing whiteness compared (Table 5)

Desizing after Table 5 Comparison% whiteness

After desizing% whiteness comparison

From Table 5, focusing ultrasonic desizing slurry is removed while the surface of the fabric, the mixed effect inside the fabric or fabric whiteness surface have certain impurities removal, therefore, also relatively high whiteness. After desizing three different approach, the fabric whiteness or less, but also to the fabric whiteness after desizing requirements.

3 Conclusion

(1) with a focused ultrasonic desizing only a short time, high efficiency, low temperature required for the cleaning liquid, but also reduces the use of some chemical agent, effectively reducing the environmental pollution desizing step.

(2) focusing ultrasonic desizing more applicable to organizations more closely fabric, and the fabric desizing mechanical properties, such as the breaking strength and elongation to be superior to conventional alkaline desizing the fabric mechanical properties.

(3) obtained by the method with the conventional fabric desizing compared focused ultrasonic desizing the fabric whiteness increased slightly.

Currently, the relatively high price of ultrasound equipment, and noise and other issues, so that the actual production application subject to certain restrictions. However, the method of ultrasonic desizing saving, efficient, clean, etc. meet the current requirements of low-carbon economy and technology, it is worth further study.
