dc.description.abstractThe aim of the present study was to develop and evaluate a low cost, small scale hand operated apple peeler. A low-cost durable hand operated apple peeler having overall dimensions of 305 mm × 225 mm × 30 mm was fabricated. The performance of the developed prototype was evaluated for different parameters in comparison to manual peeling (using knives). Significantly (p<0.05) high peeling capacity (42 kg/hour), high percentage of peel removal (17.92) and high depth of cut (0.95 mm) were recorded for developed hand operated apple peeler in comparison to manual peeling (i.e., knives). In contrast, significantly (p<0.05) lower peeling efficiency of 84% and labor requirement of 23.80 man hr/ton were recorded in case of hand operated apple peeler whereas in case of manual peeling it was recorded as 100% and 51.28 man hr/ton respectively.en_US
