Abstract:

The vegetable crop especially root crop must be washed before the transportation from field to market. For a small scale farmer, it is a labour consuming process. A vegetable washing machine was evaluated for carrot crop. The performance parameters of machine such as mechanical washing efficiency, microbial efficiency and bruising percentage were determined. The speed of the rotor drum was 25 rpm. The performance results showed that the mechanical washing efficiency, microbial efficiency and bruising percentage were varied from 72.80 to 78%, 88 to 92% and 5.80 to 8.50%, respectively. The fuel consumption was found to be 1.8 to 2.2 l h-1.


Keywords: Mechanical washing efficiency, Microbial efficiency and bruising percentage, Carrot
