Cassava chips processing machines

Cassava takes about 10 months to mature. This cassava root is perishable, and should be used soon after it is harvested. To preserve the root, farmers use cassava chips processing machine to produce cassava roots into cassava chips. After drying and deep procession by cassava chips processing machine, dry cassava chips would be possible to keep cassava for long time storage, without causing damage to its nutrition. Cassava chips could also be processed in to cassava flour used for animal feed.

Cassava chips processing machine introduction:

a. Cassava peeling:  Production of cassava chips starts with the peeling of the cassava. Peeling can be done mechanically or manually. Mechanical peelers peel as much as 2,400 –2,500Kg per hour with a wastage rate of 30-40% while manual peeling does 22Kg per man hour and wastage of 20-25%. Mechanical peelers are problematic because of the non-uniform nature of the cassava roots and the irregularity in size which make smooth peeling difficult. Also, the thickness of the skin, the texture and the strength of adhesion to the flesh of the tuber differ from specie to specie thereby making over-peeling and under-peeling possible. As a result of these problems, processors prefer manual peeling for now till the mechanical is perfected.

b. Cassava washing: The peeled tubers are thoroughly washed to remove all dirt and sand that may adhere to them. Export requirements insist that sand content should not be more than 2%.

c. Cassava chipping: The washed tubers are carted to the chipping machines where they are chipped into small chips of about 1-2 centimetre thickness and 6-7 cm long. The sizes at times depend on the prescription of the order.

d. Cassava chips drying: The wet chips are taken to the Rotary Dryer where they are dried to 12-14% moisture content.

e. Packing: they are then weighed and bagged in 50kg polypropylene bags and stored.
