Design of a Manually Operated Egg Product Separating Machine
An egg product separating machine is egg processing equipment that break eggs and separate their products (shell, yolk and albumen). In this study, the design of a manually operated egg product separating machine is presented. The egg product separating machine was designed to break nine eggs and separate their products (yolk, albumen and shell) at once.

Geometrical drafting of the machine which includes parts design (machine frame, knives, albumen collector, separator, egg holder, actuating handle), assembly and exploded view of the machine was done using computer aided design (CAD) software (Solidworks, 2016). Design steps for each part designed was well outlined and The performance results based on the ratio of number of properly broken eggs to that of the total eggs broken was obtained as 90.7 % with separation time average of 20 seconds.The cost incurred in developing the machine was 71,000 Naira (₦) making it affordable for domestic use and for use by small scale food industries.
