WRAY, G.R. and ACAR, M., 1990. Supersonic jet texturing of yarns (76th Thomas Hawksley Lecture). Proceedings of the IMechE, Part B: Journal of Engineering Manufacture, 204 (2), pp. 71-89
Almost all aspects of textile production increasinly feature the application of fluid jets and this paper reviews some of these in connection with the specific field of synthetic filament processing, for example the mingling or interlacing of false‐twist textured yarns and the hot fluid texturing process for carpet pile yarns. Particular attention is then given to the texturing of filaments by cold air jets operating at supersonic speeds in view of the two authors' considerable advancements of knowledge in this growingly significant field of application for the man‐made fibres.
