Ogden Holmes patented the world's first modern saw gin
in 1794, allowing vastly increased cotton harvest capacity, planters increased their crops so rapidly that gin production could not keep pace.
The Magnum 244 saw gin
stand has the highest capacity of any known gin stand.
After mote removal, the rest of the 40-g seed cotton subsample was ginned by a miniature laboratory saw gin
, the lint was weighed, and the number of mature seeds were counted.
This technology which has replaced obsolete saw gin
technology is already proving its worth and India is striding ahead in clean and high quality cotton production needed for high value added textiles.
Cotton ginneries have been equipped by new technological equipment: high-productive saw gins
, modernized linters and cleaners, universal generators of the drying agent which use liquid and gaseous fuel, modern hydraulic presses, effective plants installations for humidification of cotton fibre, etc.
