Title: Design and Development of Jatropha Oil Expelling Machine
Author: Taha, Khadija Gaffar Ahmed; Nimir, Thobaina Nasr Bashir
Abstract: Jatropha curcas L. is a potential source for bio-fuel production. This thesis is the design of an oil extraction machine from the seeds. SolidWorks program was used to construct a 3D model of the machine. Design computation was based on the engineering properties of the the Jatropha seed. The machine has been designed, evaluated and tested successfully. The machine consists of a frame, hopper, oil plate and screw presses, cylindrical barrel, electrical motor, oil outlet, nozzle and oil tray.
