Decorticating Machine for Separating Coco Coir, Peat and Dust from Coconut Husk




The mini decorticator is a machine that separates coco fibers (coir) from coconut husk through crushing action of multiple replaceable blades with holder. The holder is strategically welded on the main shaft (rotating drum) that rotates at a rate of 980-1000 rpm. the design configuration of blades cause the rapid separation of fibers and dust as the husks are crushed against a set of fixed counter blades arranged horizontally and parallel to the axes of the decorticating blades. Fibers and dust are discharged in separate outlets.
