Abstract:

The puffing machine was designed, fabricated and tested. This machine consists of blower unit, heating unit, container, casing, wooden platform and power consumption. Two types of power transmission was used in the developed machine, one from electric motor of 0.25 hp capacity for blower and the other one for heating coil connected directly to electric source. After achieving 220-250oC temperature in the container, the specified feed rate of conditioned rice in to the container will result in puffed rice within a short span of around 10-12 sec. The capacity of the small scale rice puffing machine ranges between 4-5 kg/h.


Keywords: Puffed rice, Puffing machine.
