Design and Fabrication of Plantain (BANANA) Fiber Extracting Mechanism

Mahendra K C | Virupaksha Gouda H

Abstract: Objective of the present paper is to design and fabrication of banana fiber extraction equipment to develop high quality banana fiber from banana pseudo stems. Banana fiber offers good mechanical properties. This plant fiber has long been a better source for high quality textiles industries in many parts of the world, especially in Japan and Nepal. Manually extraction of the banana fiber requires proper procedure and its time consuming. Labor expense is also high. Now days machines exist for extracting banana fiber with mass production. The number of machines is currently available nowadays, but quality obtained is not up to the optimum level. This can be overcome by fabricating the designing of an extracting mechanism of banana fiber from plants pseudo-stem, designing a rotor assembly which consisting of two disks on which six blunt blades are mounted, and a shaft design to drive this rotor assembly and the pulley and powering system for the machine. This paper specifies the new model of machine and its working operation
