    Pomegranate grading technology


    Internal quality

    Our TrueSort™ Internal Quality system is the only system on the market today that can accurately detect internal defects on pomegranates. We utilizes full transmittance technology to assess the internal characteristics of the product. Multispectral light passes through the pomegranate and up to 20 different measurements are made.  Our software analyses the spectral data and detects internal browning such as black heart.

    External quality

    Our high-resolution cameras enable better visual identification of the shape and characteristics of the products. Our grading technology allows customers to quickly establish “variety specific” grading parameters and programs. Using TrueSort, you can detect the most prevalent external defects on pomegranates such as cracks, scarring and sunburn.

    Colour separation

    The colour of pomegranates is highly represenative of the quality and ripeness of the fruit. Accurate colour separations are obtained through our TrueSort™ colour module that enables operators to quickly create or modify colour profiles. In this way, different shades of colour can be sorted and the software helps in determining the ripeness of the pomegranates.

    Size separation

    To measure the entire surface, the pomegranate is rotated under the camera and multiple images are taken. Using these images, the diameter, length and volume of the pomegranate can be determined. Sizing defects such as misshapen pomegranates can also be detected.


    Using loadcells, TrueSort™ can accurately measure the weight of your pomegranates at a top speed of 12 products per second per lane. The system automatically corrects for the weight drift of each cup caused by temperature differences or the build-up of dust during the day.
