Low cost portable Chironji decorticator - Workers deseed chironji manually, which is time consuming and laborious. Indrajeet Singh ideates about a portable low cost decorticator, which can be used by a small farmer easily. This machine may be manually operated or solar operated. [1]

ABSTRACT[edit | edit source]

This is a low cost portable chironji decorticator machine, which helps to decorticate the seeds of chironji easily and it's proved to be useful in rural areas for those who can't afford expensive machine. Workers deseed chironji manually, which is time consuming and laborious so we ideate about a portable low cost decorticator, which can be used by a small farmer easily. This machine can be operated under both manual and solar power. In the present invention, the proposed machine for decortications of chironji seeds, comprises of two rollers along with a hopper arrangement. Inside the hopper, there is a chironji seed sorting mechanism as well as chironji guiding plates. The guide plate provides the required direction to chironji seeds to get fed at the specific position between the two rollers. At the bottom of the roller, there is sieving arrangement which reciprocates or vibrates. Sieve and roller movement is provided with the help of single lever handle. Complete set up is mounted on the steel angle frame and can be operated manually. This process produces high quality of chironji nuts with high efficiency. Hence, by providing high yield of good quality chironji seeds without consuming much time and energy, this machine will be helpful for small farmers to increase their earning significantly.

OBJECTIVES[edit | edit source]

The main purpose of our project is to provide a low cost portable chironji decorticator machine to tribal or people who belong to rural areas or middle class people who can’t afford costly machines. • Removal of poverty. • It will give high quality of nuts by which they can earn more money. • It will give proper shape to chironji seeds. • It will save time of the farmers. • Farmers can operate it very easily. • This save labour cost • Availability of fresh material.

MATERIALS & METHODS[edit | edit source]

In the present invention, there is provided machine for decortications of chironji seeds whose main parts/ materials are:- 1. Hopper 2. Guide Plate 3. Roller 4. Handle 5. Sieve 6. Angle frame The machine for decortications of chironji seeds which comprises two rollers(3) with hopper(1) arrangement. Inside the hopper, there is a chironji seed sorting mechanism and chironji guiding plates(2). The guide plate is for providing the direction to chironji seed for feeding seeds in specific position to roller. At bottom of the roller, there is sieve(5) arrangement which reciprocates or vibrates. Sieve and roller movement is provided with the help of single lever handle(4) movement. Whole setup is mounted on the angle frame(6) and whole set up is operated manually.

INNOVATION / NOVELTY[edit | edit source]

The concept of chironji decorticator machine clearly shows the uniqueness of the present invention because in this machine there is a sorting mechanism or guiding plate which helps to decorticate the seeds in proper manner rather than any other process. Hence, this idea and invention clearly proved to be useful for small farmers & for the people of rural areas.
