The profitability of walnut cultivation and processing was investigated in the paper, both on small farms and large agricultural enterprises. The demand for walnuts in Ukraine and abroad was investigated. Theoretical studies of the dynamics of nut crop growth in the territory of our country were conducted. The tendency to increase domestic production of walnuts in the future is established.
Among the most important areas of the organization of the process of purification of this raw material is noted the process of chopping (crushing) of its shell. Applying a constructive implementation of a vibrating machine «GMK-350» for the process of mechanical cleavage of the shell of a walnut were carried out studies of the influence of the working body (plate and spherical insert) on the technological and energy parameters of the process taking into account the quality of the processed product (the integrity of the core).
The article analyzes the process of shelling of walnuts between the plate and the spherical insert. Graphical correlations between the size of the shell deformation and the dynamics of change of the driving force of change at different nut humidity and shell thickness are analyzed.
The scheme of driving forces in the area of contact between the nut and the ring is drawn up and analyzed.
The graphical dependences of the maximum crushing force on the bevel of the rings according to different shell thickness are presented; variations of the maximum crushing force depending on the humidity of the nuts for different thicknesses of the nut shell.
It is established that, theoretically, the coefficient of friction increases as the angle of inclination of the ring increases. It is established that the crushing force of a walnut shell depends less on the friction coefficient and more on the contact surface.
