Preliminary Study of Determining Trash Components in Lint Cottons by Near Infrared Spectroscopy Technique


Liu Y, Thibodeaux D, Foulk J and Rodgers J

The transfer of Near Infrared (NIR) calibration models for the determination of total trash, leaf trash and non-leaf trash components in cotton fibers was conducted between two sets of samples. These samples to be analyzed are inhomogeneous in a bulky state whereas the samples used as calibrations were homogeneous in a ground state. The efficacy of the model transfer was evaluated based on instrumental leaf grade readings of “as is” diverse samples, because current-in-use trash tests cannot generate the trash amount for individual trash components. Results indicated that the predictions from the direct model transfer were unreliable, but they might be acceptable after the correction or conversion of original predictions with standard samples.
