(H/ p155 J 572L560 ATTORNEYS United States Patent 2,998,620 METHOD AND MEANS FOR CENTRIFUGING CURLY FIBERS Charles J. Stalego, Newark, Ohio, assignor to Owens- Corning Fiberglas Corporation, a corporation of Delaware Filed June 9, 1958, Ser. No. 740,922 7 Claims. (Cl. 182.6)

This invention relates to a method and means for producing fibers of curly character, and more particularly to a centrifugal method and means for producing permanently curly fibers of heat-softenable mineral materials.

Fibers of heat-softenable mineral materials such as glass, although having many admirable qualities such as high tensile strength, inertness to deterioration, and high flex strength, are somewhat limited in adaptability for many uses in that they in general lack an inherent cur1iness which would contribute to the flutfability and utilization of the high flexible properties of such fibers in the form of springiness in accumulations thereof. Individual fibers of mineral material such as glass have heretofore in general been straight in character and difficult to curl because in many instances a requirement that curling be accomplished by reheating of the fibers following formation to effect setting of a deformation therein. The production of fibers of curled character, in this way, additionally present problems in economies.

In view of the foregoing, it is a principal object of the present invention to provide an economical method and means for producing inherently curly fibers of heat-softenable mineral material such as glass.

It is another object of the invention to provide a centrifuge method and means for producing inherently curly fibers of heat-softenable mineral material.

A still further object of the present invention is to provide a centrifuging method and means for producing inherently curly fibers of heat-softenable material such as glass wherein a composite of two materials are incorporated in the individual fibers to impart the curl desired.

The objects of the invention are attained according to the invention of the present disclosure by combining into individual fibers, heat-softenable materials having different degrees of thermal expansivity, the materials being combined in a fiber-forming zone, whereby upon cooling, they contrast to different dimensions to accordingly impart a permanent curl to the fibers under all temperature conditions of ordinary atmosphere. In brief, the apparatus of the invention incorporates an orificed spinner or rotor into which the different materials of the fibers are introduced and controllably fed from the orifices of the rotor where they are brought together and extruded in aligned integral relationship, whereupon after cooling they have an inherent curl imparted thereto by reason of the different dimensions to which the materials contract during cooling.

Features of the invention lie in the economy of production of such curly mineral fibers due to the extremely high rates of production made possible by centrifuging and the controllable rates at which the materials can be introduced in the spinner to provide preselected amounts of the different materials in each fiber of the mass produced.

'Another feature of the invention lies in the extreme fineness of fibers of composite form producible by the method'of the invention.

A still further feature of the invention lies in the highly compressible, non-itch and light density character of the accumulation of discontinuous, composite fibers of the diiferent materials producible by the method and apparatus of the invention.

Other objects and features which I believe to be characteristic of my invention are set forth with particularity in the appended claims. My invention itself, however, both as to its method of operation and manner of construction, together with other objects and advantages, may best be understood by reference to the accompanying drawings in which:

FIGURE 1 shows a general layout of apparatus for producing curled mineral fibers according to the present invention;

FIGURE 2 is an enlarged cross-sectional view of one form of rotor or spinner for producing composite fibers of different mineral materials according to the present invention;

FIGURE 3 is a cross-sectional side elevational view of another spinner for producing curled mineral fibers according to the present invention;

FIGURE 4 is an enlarged cross-sectional view of the spinner of FIGURE 3 as taken on line 44 thereof;

FIGURE 5 is an enlarged partial cross-sectional view of still another spinner construction for producing composite fibers of different mineral materials according to this invention; and

FIGURE 6 is an illustration of a type of curly fibers produced according to this invention,

Although the invention is herein exemplified by reference to production of curly fibers of glass, it will be apparent in view of the disclosure that it has application to production of fibers of other materials as well. For example, fibers of rock wool type materials, as well as carborundum and other mineral materials can be produced. Composite fibers of different resinous materials can also be produced by the centrifuging process of this invention.

Referring to the drawings in greater detail, FIGURE 1 illustrates a centrifuging process for producing glass fibers wherein a source of two molten glasses 10a and 10b, such as a dual forehearth or electrical melting unit having either an associated pair of feeders or a composite feeder 11 from which a pair of streams of molten glass 12 and 14 of different compositions are flowed to a rotor or spinner 20 through a hollow shaft 15 rotatably driven by a motor 16. The two streams of glass, upon introduction into the spinner 20 are deflected to the inner periphery of the spinner by the centrifugal force thereof and are emitted as discrete fine glass streams through orifices in the spinner periphery. Jets of gas from burners 18 are directed from above the streams generally perpendicularly to the direction of emission of glass from the spinner periphery to attenuate the streams into fine glass fibers which are acted upon by gravity, as well as being blown downwardly by the gas of the burners. A cylindrical veil of fibers 21 is thus formed about the spinner, which veil is introduced into a hood 23 for collection on a conveyor 24 disposed below the hood.

The two streams of glass 12 and 14, upon introduction into the spinner 20, are maintained as separate glasses until ready to be ejected from the orifices of the spinners wherein they combine to form bi-glass streams which are then attenuated into bi-glass curly fibers by gaseous jets directed against the zone adjacent the outer periphery of the spinner. The compositions of the two glasses 12 and 14 are such that their co-eflicients of expansion differ sufficiently that the composite fibers formed of the two glasses become curly due to the dif ferential contraction of the two glasses during cooling.

FIGURE 2 illustrates an embodiment of the spinner construction wherein the spinner 20 has a pair of distn'buting surfaces 22 and 24 for the molten glass of the two streams 12 and 14 respectively. The distributing surface 22 is the bottom of the spinner on which the stream of molten glass 12 is dropped and from which the glass is thrown radially outwardly by the rotational forces of the spinner for ejectment from the orifices 27 in the outer periphery of the spinner. A horizontal annular collection and distributing table surface 24 is fixedly mounted a vertical distance from the bottom of the spinner and is arranged to catch the molten glass of the second stream 14 to correspondingly effect its distribution and ejectment from the orifices 27. The central opening of the surface 24 is of such size that when the stream 12 is flowed in alignment with the spinner axis, it passes therethrough to the bottom of the spinner without interruption during rotation of the spinner. The stream 14, on the other hand, is caused to flow off-center from the spinner axis so that it is directed constantly to the upper distributing surface 24. A generally vertical wall extending upward from the opening in the surface 38 and provided with a radially outward overhanging lip minimizes the possibility of glass from stream 12 being deposited on surface 24.

The surface 24 is mounted in the spinner interior so that its circumferential edge bisects each of the orifices 27 and so that the glass on each level is ejected by centrifugal force through only half of the orifice. The glass on the collection surface 22 flows through the bottom half of the orifices 27, While the glass in the top collection surface 24 flows through the upper half of each orifice 27. The glass on the two collection or distribution surfaces thus flow together at the orifices 27 and are emitted as bi-glass streams for attenuation by the gaseous jets of the annularly oriented burners 18. The bi-glass streams are thus attenuated into fibers which form the cylindrical veil extending downwardly from the zone of attenuation.

This construction is mpecially adapted to formation of bi-glass streams when but a single row of orifices is provided in the periphery of the spinner. Such spinner constructions, however, are not limited to a single row arrangement in that additional horizontal platforms can be incorporated in the spinner to extend the concepts of the construction to two or more rows of bi-glass streams emitted from the spinner.

FIGURE 3 shows another embodiment of the present invention wherein the construction is adapted to provide a multiplicity of vertically spaced rows of orifices for the formation of bi-glass streams, while yet providing only two collection surfaces for the different glasses introduced into the spinner. In this construction the orifices are arranged in vertically oriented rows and each bisected by interiorly disposed, vertical partitioning members which extend from top to bottom of the spinner interior.

In greater detail, it will be seen that the interior of the spinner 30 has a bottom distributing surface 35 which the glass of a central stream 32 is deposited for centrifugal distribution, while a horizontally disposed distributing surface 38 vertically spaced above the bottom surface 35 collects and distributes the glass of a second stream 34 of molten glass. The surface 38 is annular in shape with a central opening through which the stream 32 flows constantly to the bottom collection surface 35. A concentric cylindrical wall 31, slightly smaller in diameter than the largest interior diameter of the spinner 30 is arranged to extend from top to bottom of the interior, thus forming a zone behind the orifices 37 which can be sub-divided into compartments 41 and 42 for different glasses A and B of the separate streams 32 and 34 respectively. The compartments 41 and 42 are formed by radial partitioning walls 33 each of which extend outward from the outside surface of the cylindrical wall 31 to bisect orifices 37 in an immediately oppositely disposed row of orifices. Thus, the dividing walls 33, in a sense, form vertical compartments behind each adjacent vertical row of orifices 37. Every other one of the vertically oriented compartments about the inner periphery of the spinner are arranged to receive one of the glass compositions of the streams 32 and 34, while those interposed between these compartments are arranged to receive the other glass. Distribution of the glass from the streams 32 and 34 into the respective compartments is accomplished by providing separate openings or channels for each of these glasses to their respective compartments. The glass of the streams 32 is distributed on the bottom surface 35 of the spinner and caused to flow into the vertically oriented compartment 41 through a series of spaced openings 39 which are provided in the bottom zone of the annular wall 31 below the annular distributing surface 38. The glass of the stream 34 is correspondingly introduced into vertically oriented compartments 42 through a series of openings 36 located in the annular wall 31 just above the surface 38.

Each of the dividing walls 33 extending from the cylindrical wall 31 in bisecting relation with the orifices 37, thus have different glasses flowing on opposite sides thereof into the orifices 37, as indicated more clearly in FIG- URE 4, to form bi-glass streams which then are attenuated into the bi-glass curly fibers. Any number of orifices 37 within reasonable limits can thus be aligned without ditficulty in a vertical row bisected by the edge of a dividing wall 33.

FIGURE 5 illustrates another embodiment of the present invention wherein a plurality of rows of orifices in the periphery of the spinner 50 are bisected by horizontal partitioning members as are the orifices of the construction of FIGURE 2. In this construction, the bottom surface 55 of the spinner 50 acts as a distribution surface for glass B of a stream 52, while a second surface 58, vertically spaced from the bottom of the spinner, is arranged to distribute glass A of a stream 54. The glass A, upon being thrown outwardly from the surface 58, passes through a series of channels 56 to be divided between compartments 56a and 56b, separated by a compartment 59 which accommodates glass B. The compartments 56a and 56b in other words are supplied with molten glass A through radial channels 56 spaced about the interior of the spinner. Each wall of the compartments 56a and 56b acts to partition the zone of the orifices 57 so that glass from each of these compartments flow into half of each of the orifices 57, while glass of composition B distributed by the lower surface 55 of the spinner flows about the channels 56 and into the zones not covered by the compartments 56a and 56b to supply the remaining half of the glass flowing from each of orifices 57. Bi-glass streams are thus ejected from each of the orifices 57, and any number of rows of orifices spaced vertically from each other can be arranged to receive the two dissimilar glasses for ejectment of bi-glass streams and formation of bi-glass fibers.

FIGURE 6 is illustrative of the general appearance of bi-glass fiber 60 produced with the constructions of the foregoing figures. As indicated above, the glass upon attenuation and cooling acquires the curled character by reason of the dissimilar co-eflicients of expansion thereof. Because of the differences in co-efiicients, the opposite sides of the fibers contract to different degrees, one side of the fiber being shorter along its entire length than the other, thus resulting in a continuous helically shaped curl.

For example, in some instances it may be desirable that the bisecting partition extend into the tubular channel of the orifices, or even through, and to a position slightly beyond the exterior of the rotor periphery, depending upon the viscosities, temperatures, and quantities of the glasses to be combined at the orifices. Although the spinner constructions herein disclosed have been illustrated with orifices bisected by members extending to a position immediately behind the orifice so that the glasses introduced into the orifices are combined within the orifiice channel prior to emission from the rotor, it will be understood that various degrees of bisection are possible.

The following are examples of glass compositions which can be used to produce curly bi-glass fibers or filaments. The examples set forth are presented solely for the pur- Compositions B Zn Ooefliclent of Thermal Expansion+ 10- per 0 Curliness of glass fibers produced by the arrangements set out above impart a bulkiness to the mass, thereby reducing the density requirements for desired dimensions in the mass. Additionally, the curliness provides resilient or a spring-like action, as Well as a better recovery characteristic for the mass than is obtainable with masses of straight fibers. Furthermore, the irritability frequently caused by contact with numerous ends of straight fibers is practically eliminated by reason of the individual fibers being capable of bending back on themselves into the mass accumulation within which they are incorporated. Discontinuous fibers of this character are especially adaptable to forming staple-type yarns by twisting and drafting in view of their tendencies toward inter-adherence. Such fibers are also of character which permits ready combination with other fibers, such as cotton or cellulose fibers to produce composite blends in yarns, or mass products such as mats or paper. They can also be combined with other fibers, such a soluble fiber, like polyvinyl or alcohol fibers which might be used as a carrier for the glass fibers to improve results in picking, carding, drawing, roving and spinning the glass fibers into yarns. The soluble fibers can thereafter be dissolved following processing of the yarns, such as after having been woven into a fabric.

Bi-glass curly fibers also have proven of desirable character in the reinforcement of gypsum board and pottery or firing clays in that they have what might be termed a mechanical hook or coiling action so that they reinforce in a different manner than straight fibers for such purposes.

It will be understood that variations of the concepts herein presented will be readily discernable to those familiar with the natural and synthetic fiber arts, and that modifications can be made in the structures and processes within the broad concepts of the invention. For example, in addition to providing dissimilar glasses into streams for forming bi-glass fibers, variations might include the introduction of a stream of powder glass for combination with a molten stream of glass, or two molten streams of similar glass might be treated for the formation of a composite glass stream, which when attenuated would result in a curly glass. In this regard, a single glass might be divided into two streams, one of which having powder added for the formation of a composition with a difierent co-eflicient of expansion than the other, thereby making possible the formation of a curly bi-glass fiber. Furthermore, the orifices in the spinners can be divided in diiferent proportions to join predetermined difierent quantities of the softened materials into the common streams ejected by the spinners.

In view of the foregoing, it will be understood that while I have shown certain particular forms of my invention, that I do not wish to be limited thereto, since many modifications may be made within the concepts of the invention and I, therefore, contemplate by the appended claims to cover allsuch modifications which fall within the true spirit and scope of my invention.
