Article Preview

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.
