Abstract—The objectives of this research were to design the equipment machine for separating seeds and pulp of mangosteen and to test the performance of machine tools. The separation of the parts of the mangosteen fruit currently is still done traditionally. By increasing the export volume of mangosteen, it needs some efforts to develop this product due to the low quantity, quality and sustainability of production. Method of data collection was done by direct measurements during the process of separation of the components of the mangosteen fruit. The design of separator machinery equipment is successful to separate the seeds and pulp of mangosteen. Separation of seeds and pulp of mangosteen produces several levels of quality seeds and pulp. Capacity of equipment machinery for separating pulp of mangosteen is 50 kg. h-1 and the engine efficiency is 68.54%.
