The Coconut Dehusker is designed to reduce
the price costs involved in manual dehusking. Mr Jayaseelan’s machine has a
1.5 HP electric motor, a cylindrical metal shaft, one end of which has two
sharp blades at a foot’s distance from each other.
When these blades rotate, the husk is removed
in four pieces, leaving behind only some coir fibres in the nut, which can be
removed later. The machine can dehusk up to 150 nuts per hour!
