Development of a Multipurpose Extruder/Press Food Processing System
This project is to develop versatile, low mass, energy efficient, and easily maintained multipurpose seed processing (MSP) equipment for food processing in space environments. Phase-1 of the project yielded a conceptual drawing for a MSP. Phase-II consists of six main tasks. The first model MSP will be manufactured, programmed and tested for ESM, function, and quality of processed product. The data will be used to refine the model and design multipurpose screws for the extrusion and press components of the MSP to simplify the equipment. Several models of MSP's will be fabricated and tested for versatility. The ESM crietia and functional parameters will be used to evaluate the optimum MSP for NASA applications and non-NASA applications. The final deliverables will be the test database, design drawings and the optimized MSP's for NASA and non-NASA applications.
