Soy flour grinder disc and roller type machine
MetadataShow full item record
Soybeans are a crop that can be utilized, especially in terms of food rich in protein and fat as the human and animal needs. For using the soybeans must be processed to obtain the desired physical characteristics. The process is mostly a grinding and extraction. However, these two processes are completely different applications. This research aims to study and create the soybeans grinder machine become to flour, the quantity of grinding, the variable that affect to the amount of grinding and economic analysis for guiding to investment. The researchers have designed the grinder unit by the coarse grinding and mill grinding unit. For the coarse grinding unit is similar to a disc and in case of grinding mill will be used the roller set. Base on the power train of bolt grinding unit, the electric motor with 2 HP. at 1,450 RPM are used for the experiment. For the grinding mil process, the rough material is feed into grinding mil chamber for reduce the size of material become to the flour. The results of the research found that the suitable speed of the coarse grinding and mill grinding unit was 480 and 725 RPM respectively. In case of these relationships, the average quantity of grinding for the coarse grinding and mill grinding unit was 271.8 and 150 kglhr respectively. Furthermore, the results of experiment discover the materials that are not accounted of the coarse grinding for 13.9 percent. For the economic analysis for guiding to investment found that the breakeven point and pay-back period was 110,378 kg and 0.0067 year respectively.
