Home | design calculation for palm nut fibre separator

A palm nut and fibre separator was designed, fabricated and tested. The basic features of the separator are feeding chute, pulverizing unit, separating unit, discharge outlets and the prime mover.

Modification in the design of an already existing palm nut - fibre separator. Sk Adzimah, E. Seckley; Engineering; 2009; The modified palm nut-fibre separator machine comprises of a feed hopper, a separating chamber with an upper shaft carrying beaters which act as both conveyor and cake breaker and a lower shaft with ...

Palm nut-pulp separator is a machine developed for separating digested palm fruit cake into palm nut and pulp before pressing of the digested pulp for palm oil extraction in order to eliminate nut breakage and excessive loss of palm oil to pressed fibre in the mechanized palm …

release of kernels by cracking the palm nuts. The Traditional means of separating nuts from the fibre involves the use of a woven basket to bring out the nut/fibre mixture from the bottom of the processing pit. The basket is then rocked back and forth to facilitate the movement of the fibre to the top of the nuts. The fibre moves to the top of ...

A palm nut-pulp separator consisting of a cake breaker, auger separator, hopper, 3HP electric motor, nut and pulp discharging chutes was designed, fabricated and evaluated. The results of its performance test indicated 90.05% and 419.92 kg/h as the efficiency and throughput of the separator respectively. The results of the comparative analysis of introducing this machine in semi-mechanized ...

The modified palm nut-fibre separator machine comprises of a feed hopper, a separating chamber with an upper shaft carrying beaters which act as both conveyor and cake breaker and a lower shaft with sharp edged spiral worm and four fixed blades, a pair of adjustable blades, a prime mover (a 7.5 Hp electric motor of 1900 rpm, or its equivalent IC engine) and inlet and outlet funnels for nuts and...

researchers have worked on the palm nut given its importance and multi-purpose use. Nyanjou [7] worked on the modernization and innovation of palm oil extraction process while Adzimah and Seckley, [8] modified the design of an already existing palm nut fibre separator. Parveen et

of digested palm fruit, is burdensome especially to small-scale entrepreneurs involved in palm oil processing business in Africa. This research work has triumphed over the perceived difficulties by using the knowledge of Process engineering to design a digester, nut/fiber separator and a nutcracker.

sense to recover the fibre and palm kernels. The specific objective of this paper is, therefore to improve upon the design of an existing palm nut-fibre separator machine with labour saving technologies that will enhance efficiency and reduce the cost of palm oil and palm kernel oil …

Sorting of palm nuts from palm fruit cake, a byproduct obtained after palm oil has been extracted from the batch of digested palm fruit, is burdensome especially to small-scale entrepreneurs involved in palm oil processing business in Africa. This paper has triumphed over the perceived difficulties by using the knowledge of processing engineering to design pilot nut/fibre separator that can ...
