Sizing of whole fish

For sizing, minimum batch and count jobs of whole fish

Application

This solution is designed for the fish industry. It offers high capacity and perfect accuracy in the sizing of whole fish.

Customer profile

Suitable for small, medium and large sized fish processing plants that require sizing, minimum batching and counting jobs for distribution to further processing companies. This is typically raw material that is iced continuously while packing in foodtainers, where there is a need for batch transfer results printed on labels.

Production

Suitable for harsh production environments, this solution efficiently sizes of whole fish e.g. cod, halibut, lobster, turbot and salmon with a maximum length of 900mm and a maximum of 15 kg.

Application

The system consists of a SP515 (SP510) Process Weigher in combination with a Scanvaegt Design Grader with chutes, that gently feed the whole fish into foodtainers. The system continuously accumulates the products’ individual weight. This weight is used for calculating into which portion and foodtainer the individual product must be sorted. Once a batch has been completed, the push button next to the gate will illuminate indicating a complete batch. This ensures that the portion always reaches the minimum weight. Once the gate has been emptied manually and the push button activated, a label detailing the content of the batch will be printed and the system will automatically start collecting for the next batch. The function may also be programmed as a piece count portion.
