Abstract:
ABSTRACT This paper presents the design, fabrication of a paddy dehusking machine. The machine has the following units – feeding, dehusking and separating unit. The paddy passes through the rolling unit where it is abraded by two knurled shafts and is dehusked by the rotation of the dehusking drum in the dehusked by the rotation of the dehusking drum in the dehusking unit. The paddy grain is separated from the chaff by passing the mixture through a current of air supplied by a fan. The materials used for the fabrication of the machine where selected based on the design considerations and analyses of its components. The components of the machine were selected locally and machined to specifications using machines such as lathe, grinding machine, etc. the parts of the machine were assembled at the welding and fabrication workshop of the college. When tested, the machine dehusked 1 kg of paddy in 3 minutes. It has an efficiency of 85-90% . Keywords :- Paddy, Dehusking, Design, Fabrication.
