A Manually Operated Cassava Grating Machine

EU Odigboh

Abstract


The design and development of a manually operated cassava grating machine prototype are presented. The prototype grater is shown to be easy to operate at 30 - 45 rpm to give a product whose quality is as good as that from motorized graters at a throughput of 125 - 185 kg/h. The prototype grater is a powerful alternative to the sedentary drudgery and pain-inflicting process involved in the traditional grating method.
