Tenders are invited for perform work on the refinement scutching
machine KR-10 to the processing line generate short flax fiber
The big thing was we went down to Nowlan Park the following year and we just got a heavy scutching
and it just took any confidence that we had out of them.
After hand-harvesting, fiber was crudely separated by "retting," (discussed in this section), hand-stripping and/or beating, scutching
(removal of smaller bits of adhering woody tissues from the phloem fiber, accomplished in the past with mechanical tools), hackling ("hackles" were the steel "brushes" traditionally used to separate the fibers), and perhaps additional combing to remove the remaining pieces of stalks, broken fibers and extraneous material.
That's important, because hemp must be planted early enough for its harvest endgame of retting and scutching
to be viable.
Linen workers and flax farmers prevented the introduction of heckling and scutching
The objective of the research is to test a set of textile scutching
and carding machines on coarse and semi-coarse sheep wool to assess the possibilities of getting down fibers dehaired from coarse fiber types.
Decortication (breaking), scutching
and hackling operations can produce lignocellulosic fibres that range from fibre bundles, technical fibres (50-100 [micro]m in diameter) to elementary fibres (20 [micro]m in diameter), or even smaller, micro fibrils (4-10 nm).
The Commission also proposes to maintain the impurity derogations, enabling member states to grant aid for short flax fibres not containing more than 15% impurities and flax waste the woody parts recovered after the scutching
of flax and hemp fibres not containing more than 25% impurities.
10) The oblong bone and antler artefacts found from the cultural layer of the Late Bronze Age fortified settlement of Asva, interpreted as combs for scutching
the flax, were formerly considered as the oldest sign of flax cultivation in the Estonian area (Jaanits et al.
Taking the dry but fully-retted stalks to useable fiber requires three steps: braking, scutching
The fibers are once again dried before being sent to a scutching
machine which removes any extraneous plant parts and breaks up the fibers.
As in the Third Woman's case, her first excuse refers to an activity (spreading out fleeces or scutching
flax) which needs to take place elsewhere, and her second excuse refers to a difficulty arising in the Akropolis.
