Abstract:

The existing models of coconut dehusking machines are pull type and suitable for right handed operators only. Therefore sitting models (pull and push type) suitable for both left handed and right handed operators were developed and the performance of newly developed both the models of coconut dehusker was tested on the basis of output capacity and dehusking efficiency. The tests were conducted at Department of Farm Machinery and Power Engineering, Dr. D. Y. Patil C.A.E.T, Talsande, Dist: Kolhapur (MS) in Sept.2016. The results shown that an output capacity of both pull type and push type coconut dehusker with left handed operator having the handle at left hand side, (LOLD) was 35.35 % and 34.87% higher than left handed operator having the handle at right hand side (LORD) respectively, which confirmed the provision of handle at left hand side had 34.87% to 35.35 % increase in output capacity of coconut dehusking. In case of LOLD and RORD an output capacity of push type coconut dehusker was 7.73% and 8.87% higher than the pull type coconut dehusker. An output capacity of sitting model (pull type) of coconut dehusker (73.33 nuts/h) was 12.81 % more than the existing standing model of (pull type) coconut dehusker. Whereas, the dehusking efficiency of existing and all the newly developed of sitting models of coconut dehusker was at par and found in the range of 94.57% to 95.86%.
