Corn, Sheller Machine, Efficiency, Oka.
Corn is grown on small scale farmers in developing countries like India. The average kernel price is approximately twice the price of maize. Lack of Corn processing machines, especially Corn Sheller, is a major problem of Corn production, especially in our country India. A research-work for fabricate, and performance evaluation of a Corn Sheller consisting of feed hopper, shelling unit, separating unit and power system. The performance of the machine was evaluated in terms of throughput capacity, shelling efficiency, material efficiency and mechanical damage. Regression models that could be used to express the relationship existing between the Sheller performance indices, pod moisture content and feed rate were establish. This paper describes about the design of various components of Corn Sheller machine. Hence in this design of various parts are necessary, and design of various parts due to which the design quality of those parts will be improved.
