Abstract:

India has large population of draught animals and bullocks are main draft animals in the country followed by he-buffaloes. This study is to be focus on feasibility testing of mini rice mill operation in animal driven rotary mode system for operating mini rice mill. A study was conducted for operating a mini rice mill with the help of a rotary gear complex, installed in the premises of Swami Vivekananda College of Agricultural Engineering and Technology and Research Station, Faculty of Agricultural Engineering, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur (CG). The experiment was conducted continuously for 3 hours with the measurement of milling efficiency, milling rate and cost of operation and compared with electric operated mini rice mill and physiological responses of bullocks like respiration rate, pulse rate, body temperature and fatigue score of experimental bullocks in operations of rice milling were recorded. Mini rice mill was also evaluated for performances in developed rotary transmission system. The Power generated by the bullock pair in a developed rotary transmission system and Output of mini rice milling operation were varies significantly with speed of local bullock pair during all operations. The draft exerted by bullocks, speed of bullocks, power generated and output of mini rice mill during work rest cycle were varied from 48.60 to 46.06 kg, 2.09 to 1.84 kmph, 0.27 to 0.24 kW and 93.06 to 81.90 kg/hr, respectively. The output of mini rice mill by using developed animal driven rotary power transmission system was lower than that of in electrical operation. The total cost of operation of bullock operated mini rice mill was Rs. 127.91per hour 90.12 ₹/q. Due to fluctuation of speed in rotary mode, the performance of the mini rice milling was lower in a rotary power transmission system than that of in the electrically operations.
