Abstract

The utilization of waste in the form of coconut fiber is still limited to the furniture and handicraft industries of households and has not been processed into technological products. The purpose of this study is to design a coconut husk decomposition tool that can be used in the industrial world, especially on the scale of SMEs (Small and Medium Industries). The results of this study were made to decompose coconut coir with the following specifications: tool dimensions 1650 x 540 x 1000 mm, frame using UNP 60 lightweight stell, tube using 3 mm eser plate, knife using strip plate 2 x 8 x 6 mm, using movers using 8 HP diesel engine as a substitute for an electric motor and 2600 rpm rotation. Coconut coir production capacity of 50,88 grains ≈ 51 coconuts per hour with a total coconut weight of 67,8 kg per hour. The effectiveness of the work of decomposing coconut coir is 0,96.
