The primary processing of green betel nut is, peeling the outer shell completely. This process is called husking of green betel nut. However it is being done manually by using a sharp knife with a production rate of 3kg/hr. The husking is difficult with Knife and hand. Presently there are no devices available for green betel nut husking. The nut is very soft that a higher pressure on it will break in to pieces. So it is essential to develop a hand-operated machine as a primary stage which will increase the production rate and safety to laborers, later with the same techniques we can move to a mass production machine. Under these circumstances, there is enough scope to develop a suitable device to peel the green betel nuts of different sizes and conditions. This device would find its major application in husking green betel nuts. The device is simple in design, portable, weightless, low cost and easy to operate by unskilled person. The proposed device is tested and it is found that the production rate is increased to 5 Kg/hr. There is also a scope for automated processing which would enable processing of bulk quantities at a higher production rate.
