Description and salient Technical features
A novel prototype has been developed for extraction of fibres from green coconut husk. It works on the principle of fibre-combing. The green coconut husks are fed to a puncher and crusher system and further carried to combing cylinder via a conveyor belt. Combing bars have optimum teeth fitted over a revolving cylinder which rotates at 700 rpm.
|Speed of cylinder:||700 rpm|
|Power:||3.73kW (3 phase)|
Capacity: 60-70 husks/ h
Cost: Rs.2 Lakh
How the new technology will impact the income of the farmers / end users:
Energy efficiency defibring system reduces the loss of coir fibres, improves the cleaning efficiency and productivity of fibres.
Offshore retting process will be eliminated thereby conservation of water bodies.
Status of commercialization/ IPO rights etc.
Ready for commercialization
