A research department at an university in north-eastern Romania, has developed a complex of methods and devices for measuring physical parameters of layers of wool fibers. The method allows a precise measurement of thermal and physical parameters, allows choosing the best materials for making the clothes. Researchers are seeking a commercial agency for the promotion and distribution of this method abroad.
In the garment industry, wires made from wool are often used. These wires must comply with a number of both physical and thermal parameters to enable the production of quality materials. The measurements of these parameters is performed with different devices and through different methods. In general these measurements vary greatly from case to case and often impact the measurement of other parameters. A Romanian researcher from that university in northeastern, has researched this issue and developed an array of new methods improving the measuring accuracy and enabling control. To measure the elasticity and density of wool is using a set of weights that make this measurement with an great accuracy. For temperature measurement is using a specific instrument with sensor, that provides information on the thermal conductivity of wool. Wool emissivity measurement was done with a tool in academic research modified according to the the material used. The researchers used this method in local enterprises with a very good result. The proposed method can be used in textile, both the clothing production and the realization of wool fiber materials for various uses. The university researchers are interested to find a commercial agency to promote and distribute this method to textile factories from abroad. Researchers can provide all the elements necessary to promote the method. Seeking partner must know very well that the method is suitable, and send them all the information necessary to ensure successful transfer method.
Innovations and advantages
Compared with other systems in use today, brings new complex processes: Making ingenious material with a layer of wool; Using classic cars for processing new fibrous layers, which means lower costs and reduced investment; By comparing the thermal conductivity obtained by applying new methods, we see differences that fall within the range of accuracy + / _0,01g, recommend their use.
