Salalah Mills company imports wheat from all over the countries. The imported wheat is stored for grinding to make wheat flour which is used as raw material in various food products. The wheat is transferred from truck to the storage tank via belt conveyers. While transferring, the dust present in the wheat gets mixed in the atmosphere which leads to air pollution. In order to avoid this, students are assigned with the task of designing and fabricating a dust collecting unit which helps in the removal of the dust from the wheat during transfer process. Thus, this project involves design and fabrication of blower, dust collector, duct and hood. In the Phase I, students will design the unit using CAD software then FEA software will be used for analysis & optimization. In the phase II, the dust collecting unit will be fabricated for the purpose.
