Abstract

The aim of this work is to remove the shell in groundnut with better efficiency. In traditional method, decortication of groundnut is pressed between the thumb and first finger. On the present manual process by beating with stick time taken for groundnut shell removal is more. A better process is to be evolved. This shell removal operation is done without using any electrical power. This machine is eco-friendly. Shelling of groundnut is tedious and time-consuming process. Commercially available hand operated shell removal process requires more energy with less output. An attempt was made to develop and evaluate pedal operated groundnut shell removal. The difference in unit cost of operation for the unit was appreciable less than that of hand operated decorticator. By considering less fatigue to the operator and higher output, the pedal operated sheller could be advantageously used for decortication of groundnut. It has been observed that the efficiency and productivity with hand operated groundnut decorticator and the traditional method is less. Due to this tire some working operation, commercially available hand operated decorticators require more energy with less output. By considering this pedal operated groundnut decorticator is beneficial for decortications of groundnut pods. The new and small farmer or business man can start their business by investing for less capital. So, working on the above points, we design and fabricate a new medium production capacity machine. Feedrate of developed continuous feeding type groundnut sheller is 25 kg of groundnut per hour, at moisture content of 6.8% (d.b.) gave shelling efficiency 75-85% and broken loss found to be 20-30%. For efficient of groundnut sheller, should be 55-60 rpm. Overall dimension of developed sheller is 79 × 60 × 146 cm. The cost of developed groundnut sheller is Rs.5945 and cost of operation is 28 Rs/hr.
