What is GHANI ?

GHANI is a machine being used in India since last 4000 years to extract oil from sesame at very low temperature. It was driven by bullocks. The historians have found out that even in 2000 BC, mortar and pestle of GHANI were made of stone and granite and such GHANIs were used in India for extraction of oil from sesame. Later on it was made of wood.

Half million GHANIs were in operation throughout India even upto 1955. But with the advent of oil expeller technology and big oil mills promoted by Government's foolish policy, almost all GHANIs could not sustain and had to close down. But still some GHANIs are running which are now made of iron and steel and it is driven by 2 HP motor.

TINYTECH KAMDHENU GHANI machine is the most scientific and most modern piece of technology. When I perfected its design after 2 years efforts, my heart was filled up with deep complacency that I have done very nice work. Entire GHANI is a compact machine accommodated on 600mm x 600mm base frame. 2 HP electric motor drives vertical mortar revolving at 16 RPM through reduction gear box. Pestle and mortar are so much robust that practically there is no maintenance. Pressure increasing device is through heavy spring and screw. Shipping dimensions are 30" x 36" x 48" (750mm x 900mm x 1200mm). Ghani occupies only one sq mt area. Electric motor is hanging on vertical support of Ghani. So it does not require additional space. V belt cover is provided for V belt from motor to bottom gear box. No foundations required. For easy movement in the room, 4 castor wheels are provided. Ghani has crushing capacity of 10 kg oilseeds per batch. First batch takes one hour and then batch crushing is completed in 45 minutes. Oil cake is almost 12 to 14mm thick and is excellent cattle feed. 2 hours pouring in water is recommended before feeding cake to cattles. This ghani is ideally suitable to extract cold presses pure natural fresh cooking oil from sesame, sunflower, copre, groundnut, mustard, castoroil, mahuda, saflower etc. Ghani is not suitable for low content oilseeds such as cottonseed, neemseed, soyabean etc. Total weight of the Ghani is 300kg. Ghani is very sturdy and wooden packing is not nessary for transport.

What is SANI ?

SANI is the most nutritious and most delicious sweet product made of sesame and jaggery. SANI is made in GHANI machine. Though SANI is made of sesame and jaggery, it is not only mixture of sesame and jaggery. It is far more than that. Sesame is crushed into the GHANI and when oil is liberated from the cells of the sesame seeds and actual flow of oil is seen, jaggery is added and then it is thoroughly mixed with oily sesame in the GHANI machine. Then pasty crystalline sweet product called SANI becomes ready. It gives very good desirable flavour. So SANI is composed of sesame, its oil and jaggery. Though it is not cooked on fire, it is just like cooked product. Freshly prepared SANI is very much tasty and delicious and extremely nutritious. It is so much marvelous product that Europe and America have still not found any product equivalent to SANI in taste, in nutrition and its qualities.

How to prepare SANI ?

6 kg. of sesame seeds are crushed in to GHANI. It is very gradual process of grinding the seeds. After about 8 to 10 minutes, water upto 8% of the weight of sesame is sprinkled. i.e. about 500 ml. of water is added in to the sesame being crushed. Then after 4 to 5 minutes oil will be liberated from the sesame seeds and soon it will start flowing from the top of the cone where pestle is  touching to the edge of the cone. When such clear flow of oil is seen, 4 kg. of jaggery is added in to the GHANI. Then GHANI is allowed to run for about 5 to 7 minutes until sesame and jaggery  are thoroughly mixed. Then 10 kg. of SANI will be ready. Then it is taken out. Total cycle time will be about 25 minutes. Thus 200 kg. of SANI can be prepared in 8 to 10 hours. This SANI making business is highly profitable in all cities and towns. Daily profit of Rs 4000/- is normal profit in SANI if you can sell 100kg SANI. Total investment in machinery is not more than Rs 80000/- which can be earned back in 20 days only. You can come personally here in our office to see production and sale of SANI during winter. What you can not believe, you will see in reality.

EXTRACTIONOF OIL FROM GHANI

Extraction of oil from Ghani is more art and less science. it requires good practice to master the art. For a technician of Ghani, it is very easy game to extract oil. But if you don't know anything, you will require practice. Adding water, at what time and how much is crucial factor for successful operation. Ghani machine is perfect in everything. But if you do not know art of extraction, it will not extract oil at all. So if oil is not coming out, it is not falt of Ghani machine, but it is fault and ignorance of operator of Ghani. When I first time made ghani, it did not give oil at all even after running many hours. Then we consulted one expert technician and he extracted 4 litres of oil only in 15 minutes in the same Ghani. Then I understood that machine has no fault but operator has fault.
