Research Location BPSU (Bataan)
Research Description The De-Oiler machine functions as an oil-remover of fried peanuts and garlic chips, while maintaining the quality of the product such as the cripiness, crunchiness, avoid rancid taste and prolonging of shelf-life. This project helps to fasten the production compared to the manual process by the use of centrifuge principle and heat application. Also, the system of this machine is automated thus, it lessens the human intervention and eventually, reduces production time. The machine is also easy to operate. Due to the faster production, the manufacturing company will increase the quantity of their usual daily quota of finished product.
Research Objectives The main objective of this study is to develop an automated de-oiler machine which is mainly used to remove the oil of fried nuts and chips with the use of Arduino programming languange.
