Abstract:

Sugarcane is multipurpose crop that serves as source of sugar, juices, jaggery and various products for man and raw materials for industry. But prior to the process of machining process, some processing is required to remove the solid particles, spots and sludge on the cane. The processing of sugarcane strip for industrial or human use involves different operations of which peeling is a major one and cannot be neglected. Of all the unit operations involved in cane processing, several processes have been mechanized successfully. This study presents the features, prospects, performance evaluations and limitations of some sugarcane peeling machines in world like the fixed outer drum peeler, automated cane peeler, knife-edge type self-fed peeler, etc. Their peculiar advantages and operational parameters such as machine speed, output capacity, peeling efficiency and cane losses were evaluated. Aside from the manual ones, the ranges of the peeling efficiency and cane loss were recoded in range of 59.9 – 91.4 % and 2–4% respectively. As machine speed increased, the output capacity and cane loss increased while peeling efficiency decreased. Mechanization of this peeling process has the potential of encouraging growth in cultivation, cane utilization and improving the product quality of value-added products. The product quality, processing efficiency, minimum loss of cane and increased processing rate will be affected by improved sugarcane peeling process.
