DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF PEDAL OPERATED MAIZE DESHELLER- A REVIEW (141004)

DOI :

Abstract : Lack of Corn processing machines,especially Maize Sheller,is a major problem of Corn production,especially in our country India. In this paper basic review of research - work for design,fabricate,and performance evaluation of a Corn Sheller consisting of feed hopper,shelling unit,separating unit and power system is carried out .The performance of the machine was studied in terms of throughput capacity,shelling efficiency,material efficiency and mechanical damage. Regression models that could be used to express the relationship existing between the Sheller performance indices,pod moisture content and feed rate were establish. This paper describes about the design of various components of Maize Sheller machine using different methodology. The machine could be operated continuously for a comparatively long time with high shelling rate without causing damage to kernels. Four shelling units can be provided for shelling of maize cobs and operated with the chain and sprocket arrangement
