PEDAL OPERATED COCNUT DEHUSKER

Dr.S.Eswara Reddy Senior Scientist (Hort) Acharyai N G Ranga Agricultural University Andhra Pradeh has developed a Pedal Operated Coconut Dehusker.The traditional method of cracking a Coconut to separate its husk and shell is very primitive and inefficient, even though today the Copra processing industry uses highly technical methods for other operations. In view of this fact, a simple tool has been developed by Dr.S.Eswara Reddy . It will de husk approximately 100 to 200 coconuts per hour.

The coconut is struck manually against the close-toothed blades. Next the pedal is pressed down.The lever action snaps the coconut husk in to pieces. Two or three subsequent operations are needed to separate the core completely. Dr.T.Subbarami Reddy,Member of parliament ,has satisfied with its perfrmance and appreciated the efforts of Dr.S.Eswara Reddy in developing the dehusker which is specilly beneficial tohouse wives.
