Louët has five different drumcarders: the Classic, Standard, Junior (or Roving), Elite and Elektrical 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 Elektrical drumcarder is available with a 115 V or a 230 V motor. The motor drives the large drum with V-belt system, coupled to the enclosed gear system, at approximately 90 r.p.m. The motor has a thermal safety and the drums are covered with a transparent plastic protection cover for extra safety while carding. The electric carder stands on buffers and because of its weight of approximately 21 kg (46 lb), it doesn’t need to be clamped to a table.

However, what really counts for carding is the ratio of the surface speed of both drums. You get this by multiplying the gear ratio with the ratio of the diameters of the large drum and the licker-in. This surface speed ratio is 9:1 for the  Elektrical

All drumcarders are equipped with a doffer brush, doffer pin and two table clamps to clamp it onto a sturdy table. An instruction manual written by well known author and fiber artist Deb Menz is included with all drumcarders.
