Pomegranate De-Seeder

Uddhab Barali, a 45 years old man of Assam is a serial innovator who has designed and prototyped an entire range of mechanical innovations since its innovation in 1987. The present innovation is for deseeding pomegranate. It separates the outer cover and thin inner membrane without damaging the seeds. It has a capacity of deseeding 50-55 kg of pomegranate fruits per hour. The machine has also been exported to Turkey and the USA. A motorized blade is incorporated in the machine, which halves the pomegranate fruits, one at a time. The halved pomegranates are then fed into the hopper from where they fall into the processing chamber wherein the separation of seeds from the peel and other fibrous parts take place. The seeds are collected via collecting tray while the other unwanted parts are ejected from another outlet.
