A review on factors affecting Dehusking operation of different agricultural products
NU Joshi, MN Dabhi and PJ Rathod
Dehusking is the one of the important secondary processing operations which is used to remove outermost layer in seed processing. Present review explores the different factors influencing dehusking operations of agricultural products. The significance of different product parameters viz., size, shape, hardness, texture, moisture content and machine parameters viz., feed rate, machine clearance, machine speed, speed difference, type of mechanism for achieving efficient dehusking is crucial. The effect of different pre-treatments like chemical or enzymatic pre-treatment, thermal pre-treatments like parboiling, steaming and soaking also found to help in improve dehusking process. Understanding of these factors is essential for optimizing dehusking operations, to achieve higher dehusking efficiency and get a higher yield.
