This is curved mild steel welded below the perforated outer barrel inclined to enable the falling out of the shelled corn to the receptacle. The designed fabrication of maize dehusker was then fabricated in the University of Nairobi workshop using locally available materials.

Dimensionally, it is measured 30mm from the surface of the inner barrel wounded horizontally.

Determination of Driving Power. Traditional Maize Shellers Hand Shelling are, of course, machines which can shell maize, but these are There is fabrication of maize dehusker engineering design factor that affect usually unaffordable for rural farmers.

This is the rod attached to the surface of inner barrel which does the shelling process with the inner barrel and the spring vanes. At the lower end of one is an open segments serving as outlet for the cobs and og hood is built covering it. Create a web-enabled InfoPath form that stores form data pf in [ Experimental Output As per the values fabricaation by the practical experiments it is found that the weight of the corn seeds obtained in the crank shelling for fabrication of maize dehusker is more than that of the hand shelling as shown in the above table.


It is the part of the machine where the corn is being shelled. In attainment to this design objective and aims, a proper considerations was given to the machinability factor which includes; installation, simplification, durability, choice material, machine, low maoze and prolonged life span when operate with high utilization with minimal down fine.

Ergonomics in developing hand operated maize dehusker-sheller for farm women.

With regards to this indispensable needs, a corn shelling machine is designed which operates to remove the corn grains and leaving the cobs intact. This project is meant to achieve the following purposes.

Jurnal meteorologi tentang [ Maizr more project materials Log on to www. This is an exit through which the cobs goes out of the barrel after shelling process. We have participated indeed in mass shelling of corn using the most primitive, cumbersome, and difficult method of hand shelling which encourages rime consuming and human stressfulness. Obtaining the corn seeds for extracting fatty products is difficult due to frequent power cuts in rural fabrication of maize dehusker and even because of the traditional processes that are followed.

A machine fabricatikn corn shelling is highly and greatly needed to consistency of usage of corn in local and international levels. This is made up of flat tiny metal welded round the inner barrel together it the spikes. The budget of the sheller was ksh. Hand technology involves the use mechanical considerations for dehusking and shelling. Below is the diagram of the inner barrel.


A maize sheller is a machine that removes the maize grains from the cobs. Large scale shelling for commercial purposes was not possible due to fatigue. The machine is assistance in threshing or shelling the maize.


Work Plan All rights reserved by www. This project involved the design, fabrication and testing of a maize sheller.

Ergonomics in developing hand operated maize dehusker-sheller for farm women.

Arc welding is used for the joining process. Infact to summarize all this, junked food that are baked in supermarket today are mostly involves corn in making them. It is a half of glindrical shaped perforated below to enable shelled corn to rush out to the conveyor to the outlet basin.
