Abstract: In an attempt to ease the processing of Ogi (ground soaked corn in slurry form) a major staple food in Nigeria, especially among infants and thereby increase the rate of its consumption the manual process of sieving. Ogi has been studied and a new technological method has been developed to improve the sieving process of ogi. The mechanization of the ogi sieving process involves the design of a simple machine which operates based on theprinciple of suction pressure to achieve solid-iiquid separation of the Ogi mixture. The Ogi sieving machine has been designed and assembled in three stages to improve performance of the equipment Performance tests carried out on the machine designed show that the machine has a sieving flow rate of 11.1*10-5m3/s as compared with manual sieving flow rate of 3.02 *10 -5 m3/s
