FAQs on Ceramic Guides, Yarn Guides and Wire Guides

Why does ‘Snow ‘form on the ceramic guides on our machines?
Snow formation occurs if the ceramic guide is abrading the yarn. The resulting powder collects on the guide surface. The causes are- wrong material selection, improper polishing, surface porosity, sharp edges in yarn contact area.
Why is the yarn filamenting and breaking (B.F.) on our machines?
This occurs when the ceramic guide surface has tiny cracks, sharp edges, pits, or pimples in the yarn contact area.
Why is the yarn slipping and looping in my winder?
The usual cause is too low roughness.
Why is the ceramic guide getting hot and damaging the yarn?
The usual causes are- wrong material selection, high friction and sticking due to non-optimal polishing.
