THE Pomegranate Aril Extractor is a new machine designed and developed by the Central Institute of Post Harvest Engineering and Technolo-gy (CIPHET) in Ludhiana, India. The unit is a mechanical and continuous system for processing of whole pomegranate of any size, shape and variety and for recovery of clean, whole and undamaged arils. Industrial processing of pomegranate provides an opportunity to create a new and innovative market for fresh or dried arils, juices, wines and health and pharmaceutical products. The machine is claimed to be capable of processing the whole pomegranate at a rate of approximately five quintals per hour with an extraction capacity of 90-94% and a damage rate to arils of about 1-2%.
