Video scanning type trashmeters have been developed to identify and integrate the amount of trash observed in cotton. They perform a surface scan of trash particles in lint samples compressed against an observation window. This study reports the use of video scanning measurements on yarn samples to estimate the quantity of visible trash remaining in yarn. Methods described can be used to rapidly grade yarn for visual quality and fabric defect potential.
