Research activities

The research activity of the department of equipment and engineering of processing and food productions is directed on the research of organizational-technical and technological bases of increase of efficiency of storage and processing of products of a vegetable and animal origin in the conditions of modern forms of development of innovative models of agroindustrial production. :

  • scientific substantiation of energy-saving technologies and development of equipment for separation, drying, and storage of grain;
  • scientific substantiation of technological processes of flour-milling production;
  • development of energy-saving technologies and equipment for grain grinding;
  • scientific substantiation of technological processes, development of equipment for extraction and filtration of vegetable oil.

The department developed and proposed for implementation:

  • small universal complex for the production of flour and cereals;
  • multi-tiered impact separator for seed separation by elastic properties without energy consumption for the separation process;
  • gyration separator for separation of seed heap.

Priority areas of research of the department are: conceptual principles of construction and operation of mechanisms to increase the economic efficiency of agricultural enterprises in the direction of processing and storage of agricultural products, development of recommendations for intensification of processing and food production, development of new technologies in processing and storage of agricultural products.

Over the past five years, the teaching staff of the department has published 15 monographs, 240 scientific articles (of which 13 – abroad), 27 textbooks, 34 patents, 93 guidelines for laboratory work.
