ABSTRACT
Studies upon breaking the maize grain using a crusher with variable cylinder have been carried out. Grain subjected to the breaking process was of 12, 20, and 30% moisture content. Breaking has been performed applying working gaps of 0.2, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, and 2.0 mm width as well as cylinder’s speed of 400/400, 400/440, and 400/480 rpm (both cylinders rotational speeds, respectively). Experiments revealed that increasing the rotational speed of one of cylinders in a crusher caused the increase of dusty particles in the achieved product. That increase was observed both at moisture contents change and for different widths of a working gap within the crusher.
