Beginning with the feeding systems, cotton
enters the ginning system by one of three methods; a manually operated
suction pipe, a hydraulic "Suction Command" suction system,
or the module feeding system. The suction systems deliver the seed cotton
to the gin plant. The module feeder breaks up and automatically feeds
seed cotton into the gin plant.
When the suction systems are used, the cotton is moved by air to Continental
Eagle's Big "J" automatic feed control. The Big "J"
is optional with the module feeder. The Big "J" is used to receive,
open and feed stripper harvested, machine picked, and hand picked cotton
into the hot airline at its discharge.
High Velocity hot air carries seed cotton through the Vertical Flow first
stage drying system where a large portion of moisture is removed, opening
seed cotton for first stage pre-cleaning - the removal of bulky trash,
such as leaves, stems, and dirt. The first stage pre-cleaning most commonly
consists of an inclined cleaner which feeds the seed cotton into a Stripper
cleaner for stripper harvested seed cotton or directly to the Super III....for
machine picked seed cotton when the Stripper cleaner is not required.
Following the Super III, seed cotton discharges into another hot airline
and passes to the second stage drying system for more moisture removal
before a second stage pre-cleaning. This second stage commonly involves
the use of a Continental Eagle Inclined Cleaner and Impact Cleaner, which
removes the finer trash.
Clean, dry seed cotton is discharged into a conveyor which distributes
it to the Golden Eagle Extractor-Feeder, which removes the finest trash
and single locks seed cotton before entering the Golden Eagle 161 Saw
Gin where the lint is removed from the seed.
||Seed and trash are discharged
into separate conveyors below the floor. Lint is moved by air from
the gin to the Centrifugal Lint Cleaner where trash is removed by
centrifugal force. Lint is then moved by air to.... Single or Tandem
24-D Lint Cleaners for final cleaning. Cleaned lint is pneumatically
conveyed through the lint flue, to the battery condenser. The condenser
forms the lint into a continuous batt conveyed down a lint slide to
a press. From here, it is compressed and baled automatically into
true universal density bales in one of Continental Eagle's U D Presses,
the model 9300 press.
Our exclusive Jenglo bale tying system, Continental's unique bale
handling, bagging and conveying system complete the process, putting
on the final touch of high speed automation for super high capacity
This is only a basic model of a total ginning
system; variations may be designed to fit any need, regardless of capacity
