Louët has five different drumcarders: the Classic, Standard, Junior (or Roving), Elite and Electric drumcarder. They are made of laminated birch and have a hard white coating. The drums of the carders are 19 cm (7 1/2") wide, except for the drum of the Junior (10 cm (4") wide). In order to ensure a long life, the teeth on all Louët carders are made of high grade plated steel wire. All gearboxes, except for the Elite drumcarder, are enclosed to prevent fibers entering the gear system.
The Standard and Junior drumcarders have an extra fine cloth (72 teeth per square inch). The advantage of this extra fine cloth is that you also can perfectly card very fine fibers.
This surface speed ratio is 12:1 for the Standard Drumcarder.
Doffer brush and doffer pin are included.
