DESCALERS


MU Waterjet Descaler

The MU waterjet scaler uses high pressure water to remove the scales from the fish. The waterjets are adjusted so that the scales are removed, and no damage occurs to the outside of the fish or the meat. The machine removes the scales and recycles most of the water to reduce operating costs.

HEAD CUTTING


HV-40 Collar-off Head Cutting Machine

A stand-alone head cutting unit for fish in the size range 1.5 kg to 8 Kgs. Each fish is individually located to ensure optimum position irrespective of size. A vee cut configuration ensures capture of the meat at the top of the head above the gill plate. The HV-40 now features the ability to move the blade intersection point relative to the size of the fish. This allows for the intersection point of the blades to line up with the backbone of the fish no matter the size of the fish. Having the blade intersection in the right place is critical to ensure a high yield across a large size range.


CB-30 Collar-on Head Cutting Machine

A Stand alone head cutting unit for fish in the size range 2 to 3 Kgs. Each fish is individually located to ensure optimum position irrespective of size. The head is then removed in front of the collar bone.

EVISCERATION/GUTTING


SGA-22 Head off Gutting Machine

The Pisces SGA-22 produces a clean gutted fish from a head off fish. The SGA can process fish from 2lbs to 16lbs. The SGA removes the viscera in one solid piece with out damaging the viscera or any roe in the fish. The machine also cleans and removes the blood line/kidney from the fish.


SGA-32 Head on Gutting Machine
