Hand Powered, Design and fabrication, groundnut shelling


Groundnut has more important in this world as on oilseed crop. Seeds contain abundant amounts of edible oil and protein for us and fodder for animals. Our country is facing problems in production of peanuts. Having a lack of groundnut processing machine is the major drawback for our country. In market, the no. of machines are available with larger size, high cost and mostly for non-domestic application and only suitable for mass production. Therefore, it is necessary to design and manufacture peanut shelling machine. All the forces, factors and engineering principle are taken into account while designing different parts of machine. Special design of this machine improves separation efficiency and reduces errors. It consists of hopper, crushing chamber, hand operated mechanism, bearings, nuts and bolts. The machine is small in size, easy to maintain and portable.
