Abstract:
The present study has been conducted in two modern rice mills which have capacity of 4 t/h and 2 t/h for parboiled rice and raw rice respectively. Both the rice mills are located in Mungeli district of Chhattisgarh state. The entire research work has been carried out by the way of self-investigation with helping hands. Energy consumption data has been measured for each machineries of rice mills. After the entire study, it was noticed that the total electrical energy consumed in production of one tonne parboiled rice milling is 50.10 kWh/t, thermal energy is 826.50 kWh/t and also the maximum manual energy consumed is 4.19 kWh/t. Further, it was estimated that, the total electrical energy consumed in production of one tonne raw rice milling is 30.97 kWh/t and manual energy consumed is 1.82 kWh/t. In case of parboiled rice mill consumed net electrical energy is 21.98 kWh which is about 56% higher than that of raw rice mill. These data generated from this study could be used for detection of power losses used in different processes of rice milling. It could help in efficient utilization and selection of process as well as machineries for milling of both raw and parboiled rice.
