A Simple Unit for Extracting Leaf Protein in Bulk

  • N. W. Pirie (a1)


The unit is a greatly simplified screw expeller, modified so that the crop is thoroughly rubbed to liberate juice before the charge moves into the part of the unit in which pressure is applied. The throughput of the model described here is 2 kg of crop per minute; power consumption is about 400 W. The unit weighs 40 kg, but larger ones, operating on the same principles, could be made.
