Title of the Innovation: TRAY WASHING CUM DISINFECTION MACHINE FOR SERICULTURE APPLICATIONS

Brief About Innovation

Presently, the plastic trays (60 cm x 90 cm) which are used in a very large number for silk cocoon production for rearing young silkworms, silkworm egg production, etc. are cleaned manually. There is no mechanical device available in India for washing and disinfecting the plastic trays used for silkworm rearing, silkworm egg production, etc. A lot of manpower, time, water, chemicals and expenditure are required for cleaning of the plastic trays. The cleaning of the trays is a regular and time bound work in young-age silkworm rearing centers and silkworm egg production units. The cleaning of trays involves lot of drudgery. CSR & TI, Mysuru has designed and developed a machine to facilitate cleaning and disinfection of plastic trays. The Tray washing cum machine will mechanize the cleaning and disinfection works and help the silk cocoon producers to do work on time, at less cost and effort and make large scale rearing of the silkworms possible.
