A sugarcane juicer extracts juice from sugarcane. Types of juicers vary
in price, size and use. The juicer can be automatic or manual. It's
time-consuming to extract sugarcane juice manually so automatic juicers
are used for commercial purposes. A manual sugarcane juicer can be made
at home, but it is challenging.
Things You Will Need
- 1.5 m long metal handle
- 2 metal rods, 1 m long and 10 cm diameter
- 2 bearing wheels
- Strong metal plate, 50 cm in length, 20 cm width and 2 cm thick
Step 1Learn how a sugarcane juicer works. To make a juicer, you must know how it works. Information on sugarcane juicers can be found online or in books such as "Principles of Sugar Technology."
Step 2Identify the juicer you want to make. Assemble the materials needed to build it.
Step 3Join the parts. Carefully place the metal handle between the two metal rollers supported by the metal plates. Make sure the handle rests on the plate. Have a friend help you join the parts using nails and metal plates.
Step 4Test your sugarcane juicer. Put sugarcane between the metal handle and the metal plate and press down on the handle.
Tips & Warnings
- Buy stainless steel metal rollers and frames to prevent the juicer from rusting.
- The homemade juicer works well with peeled sugarcane.
