Abstract:

Designing the equipment for processing, sorting, sizing and other post-harvesting equipment of agricultural products requires information about their physical properties. The objective of this work was to determine some of the physical properties of three different type of rice variety which may influence the rice processing operations. In this study, various physical properties of rough rice variety were determined at a moisture content of about 12% (dry basis). In the case of Rajeshwari variety, the average thousand kernel weight, geometric mean diameter, surface area, volume, sphericity, aspect ratio, true density, bulk density and porosity were 21.64 g, 4.08 mm, 49.38 mm2, 39.01 mm3, 41.38%, 30.03%, 1350.43 kg/m3, 695.77 kg/m3, and 48.51%, respectively. The corresponding values were 30.28 g, 3.43 mm, 38.13 mm2, 23.03 mm3, 28.50%, 25.21%, 1110.47 kg/m3, 580.18 kg/m3, and 47.74% for Durgeshwari variety and 35.54 g, 3.74 mm, 44.02 mm2, 28.16 mm3, 40.42%, 30.13%, 1056.86 kg/m3, 615.12 kg/m3, and 42.23% for Mahamaya variety. Rajeshwari variety, the average static coefficient of friction varied from 0.24 on glass to 0.36 on plywood, while for Durgeshwari variety the corresponding value varied from 0.25 on glass to 0.44 on plywood and for Mahamaya variety, varied from 0.25 to 0.40 for the same surfaces. Angle of repose values for Rajeshwari, Durgeshwari and Mahamaya variety were 34.58°, 30.80 and 33.31° respectively.
