The main aim of this project is to modify and fabricate a groundnut roasting and decorticating (peeling) machine for better efficiency. This paper will also describe the design of various parts of the machine. This involves processes like the design, modeling and analysis of some parameters etc. The performance of the machine will be evaluated in terms of capacity, the rate of feed and efficiency. This work entails the design modification of a groundnut roasting and decorticating (peeling) machine. The decorticating machine which will be powered electrically by 1 Hp, a blower, 1500rpm electricmotor and also comprises of the roasting chamber, sieving, peeling unit etc and is opened directly to thedecorticating unit.The peeled groundnut seeds and the chaffs fall directlyinto the cleaning unit where an installed fan blow away the chaff and the seeds are collected directly through anopening below the decorticating unit. The machine will be made from locally sourced materials and it can be used inboth urban and rural areas. This work will be focused on the design and development of an integrated groundnut roasting and decorticating (peeling) machine which will electrically be powered by a lhp motor. The machine will have the capacity of roasting and decorticating of groundnut with a separating efficiencies of 91.67% respectively. The machine will be fabricated from locally sourced materials, which will make it cheap and easily affordable and also easy and cheaper to maintain. It will also be of light weight and comprises of the hopper, roasting chamber, separation chamber, peeling chamber, the blower unit etc. The machine will be tested for performance and efficiency after the fabrication is completed.
