About the Practice

The husking of dry areca nut is done manually, which is a very tedious process and requires a large number of skilled workers. Getting skilled workers during the peak season is a challenging task for the areca nut farmers. For better peeling of dry arecanuts, Narsimha modified his earlier arecanut husking machine using the relative motion between the high-speed rotating cushioned discs. A 1 hp motor powers the husking disc and a blower of 2 hp power is provided to blow away the husk. The capacity of the machine is 40 kg/h of dry arecanuts and the husking efficiency is estimated to be around 90 per cent.http://nif.org.in/innovation/dry_arecanut_peeling_machine/51
