Australian Classing Services - ACS


Classing Australian
Cotton for the World


Cotton classing is undertaken by ACS to determine the quality characteristics of each bale of cotton to be marketed by Cotton Growers, Cotton Brokers and Merchants. The quality characteristics include colour, leaf (trash) content, staple length, micronaire, strength and uniformity. ACS undertakes this quality assessment utilising a mixture of the latest available High Volume Instrumentation (HVI) equipment and human visual testing for colour and leaf. Once each sample has been classed, the associated quality characteristics data is provided to all parties for use in their warehousing, selling and shipping of the lint cotton into overseas markets.        


Experienced Local Staff


ACS fully supports our local communities by employing local people. Our staff are well experienced in all aspects of the operations of the classing room facility. Our staff are from long established cotton growing families within our communities.
