Abstract

The main objective of the study is to design and construct a prototype of a rice huller with rice grinder. Experimental research approach is used in this study. It is an attempt by the researcher to maintain control over all factors that may affect the result of an experiment. The researchers had successfully fabricated a prototype of a rice huller than can efficiently husk and bran of the rice using the principle of friction resulting from the rotating motion of the steel roll. A vacuum fan was also installed to suck the remaining light husk at the exhaust of the rice huller. The resulting output from the rice huller with vacuum fan had a husk to rice ratio of less than one cup of husk per 30 cups of rice.
