Unit of chemical delinting
As the majority of the cotton growers prefer cottonseed free of lint, operating with one of the most modern units of chemical delinting, we process cottonseed collected during the processing of raw cotton with the method of dilute sulfuric acid.
Free of lint seed can be measured with accuracy, with the use of sowing machinery and in general accomplishes low cost sowing. Bare seed is sowed with high accuracy and germinates much faster (less than half the time needed for the unprocessed seed). Recognizing those advantages created the need of finding a method which frees cottonseed from lint.

Most cotton producers prefer lint-free, naked cotton planting seed. Lint-free seed can be more precisely metered through the cotton planter and generally lead to a more economical planting. Lint-free seed can be more precisely planted and grows much sooner (less than half the time required for fuzzy seed). Recognizing these benefits, it was necessary to explore the possibilities of developing an improved delinting system.
