Title EFFECT OF SOME GRAIN FACTORS ON THE MILLING OUT-TURN OF SOYBEAN
Author Name A. Sahu
Abstract

Studies were conducted to evaluate the effect of some grain factors on the milling out-turn of soybean. A mini-dal mill with the cylinder- concave mechanism was used for conducting the experiments. A knurled cylinder surface was chosen. The variables selected for the study were; grain moisture, temperature of soaking time of soaking, grading and cylinder concave clearance (grain size). The hulling and splitting efficiencies at different temperatures and periods of soaking were determined, once the grain moisture and cylinder- concave clearance were optimized. Based on the analyses, the effect of various factors on the milling out-turn of soybean, it is concluded that the best results for the milling out-tum kon be obtained at an optimal soaking temperature of 30°C, soaking period 30 minutes, cylinder concave clearances of 6 mm followed by 5 mm, and moisture content of 8.5% (db).
