Abstract: This article presents the design of a hydraulic system for water supply in a post harvest process plant used for
production of Poundo yam flour. The design obtained the operational parameters of the components of the hydraulic
system. The volumetric flow rate of water obtained from the design analysis was used to estimate the volume of water
required by unit machines utilizing water in the process plant and a summation of these volumes provides the total
volume of water utilized by the entire process plant. The results obtained for the total volume of water utilized by the
process plant when operating with a buffer storage indicates that a dam should be built in order to make water
available at a less financial expense for realization of profit from the sales of the product.

Post harvest processing of food crops is an important
activity that can guarantee food security in a nation. A
hydraulic system for water supply in a process plant is
designed and evaluated in this article. The design analysis
obtained all the design parameters needed for effective
operation of the process plant. It is important to design a
system for water utilization in the process plant because
its helps the management of the process plant to know the
running cost that will be required in terms of water usage.
The design will also provide an insight to the location of
the process plant because a dam need to developed
considering the fact that a high volume of water is
estimated when operating the plant with buffer storage.
Hence, the development of a dam for water supply is
inevitable for effective operation of the process plant.
