Abstract:

Various roasting machines are developed for miscellaneous roasting purposes for home and industrial purposes. However the development of roasting machines using locally available materials for the local people has not been researched as much. Any innovation was only at the user level. Innovations and adaptations for roasting corn cobs are also seen at the vendor level for whom selling roasted corns is the only source of income for most of them. The process of roasting corns requires continuous fanning of coal to maintain the right amount of heat which is a very stressful process. Various technologies have been created to make the process of roasting easy, quicker and stress-free but most of these were developed outside India. The economic situations of the corn cob roasting vendors have limited the use of automated and power driven equipment to a few large scale processors and vendor. Therefore, to reduce the stress and accidents during roasting and increasing the efficiency, a roasting device with increased efficiency and productivity is needed to be developed. The present study is an attempt to design, develop and test the performance of improved maize roaster (barbecue stove).
