Energy consumption analysis of traditional drinks making in rini herbs home industry

Bekti Maryuni Susanto


The small industry "Rini" is a small industry  making instant health drinks whose  existence  has  been  more  than 7  years.  In  general,  health  drink  processing techniques consist of sorting raw materials, washing, knitting, grinding with blenders, squeezing,  heating,  filtering,  cooling  and  packaging.  The  above  industry,  in  general, still  uses  simple  technology,  such  as washing,  squeezing,  filtering  and  still  manually by  hand  while  the  grinding  process  is  carried  out  using  a  blender  machine.  This condition  has  an  impact  on  low  work  capacity,  unhygienic  product  quality  (many  in contact with workers hands), not ergonomic and blender machines often damaged due to  heavy  work.  The  disadvantage  of  manual  squeeze  is  that  the  juice  yield  is  not optimal,  this  is  because  the  longer  the  squeeze  ability  will  decrease  and  will  give  a heat  effect  on  the  hand  so  that  skin  irritation  will  occur  which  results  in  unhealthy product. Based on these problems a mechanical device was developed to support the traditional  beverage  production  process.  The  mechanical  tools  developed  consist  of chopper  machines,  squeezing  machines  and  washing  machines.  The  three  engines were  developed  using  gasoline.  The  results  of  the  energy  consumption  measurement of making the traditional "Rini" Herbs Home Industry drink amounted to 10 Mj / liter.
