Abstract

    A membrane recycling device attached to garlic membrane remover was developed and tested in this study. Some shortcomings like operation space consumption, dust pollution and inconvenient post-handling would be improved, and feeding, reducing and discharging operation of garlic membrane could be operated at the same time by using this membrane recycling device. With this device, garlic recycling operation may become easier and garlic membrane removing operation could be more mechanized and cost down effectively. According to test results, the grinding level of this device had met design requirements and one membrane recycling device could work with 3 garlic membrane remover at the same time. The volume of garlic membrane could be reduced to 75% after grinding process and the ground garlic membranes become to thin stripe types with average length of 6mm.

Keywords: Garlic, Membrane remover, Recycling device.
