A hand-operated disc mill for decorticating sunflower seed

, : A hand-operated disc mill for decorticating sunflower seed. Rural Technology Guide, Tropical Products Institute (10): 33

This guide describes how to make a hand-operated disc mill for decorticating sunflower seed. Most of the parts are made in wood which should be available locally. If, however, metal is cheaper or easier to obtain, then it can be used - for instance, to make the frame. This type of decorticator is suitable for removing the husk from the larger, low-oil-bearing, or confectionery types of sunflower seed and will yield a high proportion of whole kernels.

Preliminary study. The ability of Pneumocystis carinii to induce TNF-alpha release by macrophages from adult healthy humans was investigated. Monocytes and monocytes derived macrophages produced an high amount of TNF-alpha when exposed to P. carinii cysts obtained f...
