Paper Title:
Evaluation of Kinematics and Ergonomic Studies of Groundnut Oil Extraction Methods
  Abstract

Comparative evaluation of kinematics and ergonomic studies of traditional and motorized kneading methods for extraction of groundnut oil was conducted. Moisture and oil contents of Samnut-10 used was found to be 7.3% and 43.6 % respectively. Subject’s energy capacity per day was 0.548 kcal / day. The average throughput capacities of kneading 5.5kg groundnut paste for traditional and motorized kneading methods were 0.56 kg / minute and 0.87 kg / minute respectively. Average weights of oil obtained and extraction efficiency for the said quantity for the traditional and motorized kneader were: (1.6kg, 1.7 kg) and (82.4 %, 91.33 %) respectively. At the oil forming stage, the drudgery of kneading in traditional method was eliminated by the motorized kneader via the fingers attached to the shaft in the hopper.
