project work sought to design a yam pounder that pounds yam right from the peeled cooked Hammer mill in early 1975. ECONOMIC IMPORTANCE OF YAM POUNDING. MACHINE. Yam (Dioscorea spp) is common throughout the world.
8 Mar 2019 of yam pounding, a yam pounder was designed and developed based on factor of safety, hygiene, cost and availability of materials in the market. The performance tests on the machine were replicated five times using.
The following machinery and equipment are required for small scale pounded yam flour production. These equipment can be sourced locally at affordable prices. They include: Yam Slicer,. Milling machine (Hammer Mill),. Drier, Parboiler.
The paper covers the deign analysis of each machine involved in the production process of the process plant. Viz a viz peeling and slicing machine; parboiling machine; conveyor; sieving machine; drying machine and grinding machine.
The research work aimed at eliminating the labour involved in traditional method of pounding. Through this improvement the possibility of food contamination by sweating while pounding will be control. This project work sought to design a yam
Yam is a daily nutritional food requirement for man and in order to facilitate the processing of yam for consumption, a yam pounding machine has been developed using mainly some locally sourced materials. The machine consists of a shaft,
