Abstract

The Beringin Business Group in Selat Baru Village, Bengkalis Regency, manages the Black Soldier Fly (BSF) to produce maggots, which are then used as livestock feed for other businesses. The conversion of organic waste into BSF maggots is an effective and environmentally friendly method in organic waste processing. Therefore, a food material grinding machine is needed to process banana stems into feed material The reason for using banana stems is to make it easier for the maggots to consume their food, facilitating the decomposition process to produce BSF maggot feed. The machine is powered by a gasoline engine to efficiently grind banana stems and other organic waste. The grinding device employs a 6.5 HP gasoline engine operating at 3000 rpm. The engine's power is transmitted from the cutting blade to the device through a belt and a pulley. The machine operates by feeding banana stems into an initial funnel, which then guides them to the cutting blade for shredding, resulting in a paste-like or finely ground output. Three tests were conducted using varying diameters of banana stems: 2.5mm, 3.5mm, and 4.5mm. The test results indicated that processing banana stems with a diameter of 4.5mm yielded the recommended outcome, the average output of the machine is approximately 6.11 kilograms per hour.
