Rotating Drum Collector
The rotating collector of electrospinning is used for collecting aligned nanofiber sheet. This is the simplest & the effective method to make aligned nanofibers. By using different length/ diameter ratio, with different rotating speed, an even fiber sheet or aligned fibers can be made. The rotating drum collector is used to change the orientation of the collected fibers and producing a homogenous nanofiber mats. This collection module consists of the rotating drum unit with a translational linear motion emitter. At low rotational speeds, the fibers are randomly deposited onto the surface of the drum. As the rotational speed of the drum is increased more than 3000 rpm, fibers are deposited on the surface in an aligned orientation.
Drum size is 30 cm, and diameter 80 mm
Maximum rotational speed is 3000 rpm
