This study which is entitled as the Effectiveness of Stand Alone Discorine Removal Machine will focus toward the removal the discorine in the Dioscorea hispida. Dioscorea hispida is also known as ‘ubi gadong’ is a large tuber, underground tubers that have fibrous root, the tuber are produced near the soil surface and are extremely poisonous, alkaloid that is dioscorine. This machine has been improved to increase the effectiveness to get a better result during operation. The tubers were cut into into small pieces before wash by flowing water using the machine, the circulation of water play important role in the operation. The tuber maybe easily rub each other during water circulation and make the dioscorine more faster to move out from tuber. It also has many advantage such as can retain in a big capacity, high efficiency, used of water can be saving, the machine can work continuously, easy and simple to operate, friendly used and with long life. As a result for this study, the measurement on efficiency of this machine because it can be commercialized for dioscorine removal and can be used easily by followed the instruction. This machine is very effective in terms of removing dioscorine from tuber as well as to be used at farmers level or commercial purposes.
