ACAR, M. and WRAY, G.R., 1986. An analysis of the air-jet yarn-texturing process part 1: a brief-history of developments in the process. Journal of the Textile Institute, 77(1), pp. 19-27.
After a brief description of the air-jet texturing process, the historical development of industrial texturing nozzles is summarized, and a critical review is given of previous investigations that have been directed to an understanding of the texturing process. It is argued that many of the previous hypotheses were based on a technology that used pre-twisted supply yarns and that they are invalid for current zero-twist texturing processes.
