The paper presents an investigation of the drying ability of terry fabrics with respect to pile height and finishing. The terry fabrics used in the experimental work were made from linen/cotton yarns, and the pile height of the samples was 6 and 12 mm. The fabrics analysed were grey (without finishing) as well as affected by washing with detergent, softening, centrifuging and tumbling procedures. The uniformity of dispersions was proved, and the high informativity of the experiment was found by analysing all data of the remaining water ratio of the terry fabrics. The evaporating process lasted till 130-150 min for grey terry fabrics and till 130-190 min or longer for finished variants. The regressions investigated showed a very good or good match with experimental data: determination coefficient R2=0.7882-0.9492. Mainly the results are best described by logarithmic, polynomial and linear regressions.

Abstract:

The paper presents an investigation of the drying ability of terry fabrics with respect to pile height and finishing. The terry fabrics used in the experimental work were made from linen/cotton yarns, and the pile height of the samples was 6 and 12 mm. The fabrics analysed were grey (without finishing) as well as affected by washing with detergent, softening, centrifuging and tumbling procedures. The uniformity of dispersions was proved, and the high informativity of the experiment was found by analysing all data of the remaining water ratio of the terry fabrics. The evaporating process lasted till 130-150 min for grey terry fabrics and till 130-190 min or longer for finished variants. The regressions investigated showed a very good or good match with experimental data: determination coefficient R2=0.7882-0.9492. Mainly the results are best described by logarithmic, polynomial and linear regressions.
