Development of the dehulling principle for a serradella dehuller

Journal of Agricultural Engineering Research 63(1): 1-8

Development of the dehulling principle for a serradella dehuller

Serradella (Ornithopus compressus Avila) seed and pod segments have a germination rate of <10%, unless the husks are removed and the naked seed scarified, when the germination rate increases to 85%. The development of the prototype of a machine to thresh the seed is described.

Seeds of 2 sunflower hybrids with high and varying fatty acid composition (Olivko and NS-H45) and confectionery type Gricko were dehulled using a laboratory pneumatic machine. Seed moisture content and dehuller air pressure were varied throughout...
