Method for processing bast-fiber materials
Bubnov et al of Good Wave Technologies Limited, Cyprus, A method for processing bast-fiber materials involving loosening a material, placing said material in an aqueous medium, hydrodynamically processing material successively in two modes: first, in a continuous mode by performing a hydrodynamic wave field action, and then in a pulsed mode by performing a shock-wave action, wherein the pressure amplitude of the positive wave phase in the continuous mode is less than the pressure amplitude of the positive wave phase in the pulsed mode, and removing the material from the aqueous medium. It is possible by the method to produce a high quality cottonine, the linear density of which is equal to or less than 0.3 Tex with the optimal energy consumption of the production process. (RDC 9/5/2012)

“Tex is a unit of measure for the linear mass density of fibers and is defined as the mass in grams per 1000 meters. Tex is more likely to be used in Canada and Continental Europe, while denier remains more common in the United States and United Kingdom. The unit code is "tex". The most commonly used unit is actually the decitex, abbreviated dtex, which is the mass in grams per 10,000 meters. When measuring objects that consist of multiple fibers the term "filament tex" is sometimes used, referring to the mass in grams per 1000 meters of a single filament.” (Wikipedia, Tex, 9/5/2012)
