Working Principle of Manual Peanut Sheller Machine
The hand operated peanut sheller is made of a hanging frame mounted in a metal housing with a concave screen bottom. As the frame is cranked, the nuts enter the space between the roller and the screen. In operation, groundnut in the hopper is fed into the clearance between the roller and the concave while the roller is turning. The peanut is then shelled by rubbing action between the roller and the screen. After the groundnut has been shelled, the kernel and the shell fall through the screen.
