As is well known, the main disadvantage of air-jet weaving machines is their high energy costs

compared to projectile and rapier weaving machines. This makes air-jet looms less preferable for

companies in countries such as India that suffer from very high energy costs, despite their higher

production  speeds.  Air-jet weaving loom manufacturers have  continuously  been working on the

reduction of air consumption in their new designs to overcome this drawback. However, weaving

mill practices are as important as machine designs on air consumption.

In  our  poster,  therefore,  we  aim  to  recommend  the  possibilities  to  reduce  air  consumption on

current air-jet weaving looms without making a new investment in a weaving mill. A decrease of

air consumption by 21% was accomplished in a weaving mill by just decreasing the hole diameter

of the single-holed relay nozzles. Another possible way is by optimizing the blowing time of the

multi-holed  relay  nozzles.  Thus,  a  company  having 202  looms  could  save  240,000  per  year  in

electricity  costs  with almost  no  expense.  Our  poster  will  explain  above  mentioned  methods  in

detail and some other tips to minimize air consumption on air-jet looms in the weaving mill.
