Chargeurs Luxury Materials is a Chargeurs business. | Chargeurs Wool (USA) Inc. is a Chargeurs Luxury Materials company.
The Chargeurs processing facility has 400,000 square feet (37,000 square meters) under roof on a land surface of 500 acres (200 hectares).
After opening and blending of the raw wool, processing starts with a hybrid scouring line especially assembled for optimum cleaning with very gentle wool treatment to best preserve fiber length. Twelve 2.5-meter Octir cards are operated at low speeds for improved quality and to further preserve fiber length. Three passes through Schlumberger pin drafters properly prepare the wool for the Schlumberger combs that are operated below standard speeds for a better quality combing. Two more subsequent passes through Schlumberger pin drafters provide an even sliver that is packaged into one of two sizes of ‘bumps’ or traditional bobbins, whichever provides the best efficiency in the customer’s operation.
In addition to a strong preventive & predictive maintenance program, processing equipment is continually audited for maintenance levels and scheduling of overhauls.
