Groundnut shelling machine was designed and fabricated at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Institute of Technology, Kwara State Polytechnic Ilorin aimed at increasing shelling/decorticating efficiency and eliminating drudgery associated with the traditional method of -shelling groundnut and other developed methods such as pedal-operated methods. The machine is powered by a 1.5 horsepower motor at a speed of 1440 revolution per minute. Performance investigation carried out show a good performance of the machine with decorticating efficiency, undecorticating efficiency, machine damage efficiency, cleaning efficiency and output capacity of 92%, 7.5°k, 3%, 85% and 120kg/hour respectively. It is recommended that a motorized oscillating decorticator for commercial production for human and even animal consumption be fabricated using stainless steel material for critical parts...
