Abstract:

Pulses are the integral part of the Indian diet and also cultivated in many rural areas. So, in this context, a low cost, untroubled some mini dal mill which is operated by a 1 HP electric motor that is easily accessible will be very helpful. Through the addition of a cyclone separator and blower unit, a mini dal mill that had already existed was modified. This modification was useful for separating the milled dal from its husk which was lacking in the unmodified dal mill. For this, the terminal velocity was measured for green gram. An existing high capacity dal mill was regarded as a reference for designing and developing of present blower and cyclone separator unit. Finally the developed unit was tested and cleaned milled dal from the husk was successfully separated.
