Marel's Standard Flowline is used for trimming farmed whitefish species (tilapia, pangasius, catfish), small groundfish (haddock, Alaska pollock), and small salmonids (rainbow trout).
A Standard Flowline is designed to be part of an integrated processing solution, that includes a Standard Flowline for hand filleting and a Standard Flowline for trimming and can replace a manual table or conveyor based trimming system. Each flowline has a number of operator workstations, equipped with a worktable with bins for products and trimmings.
The flowline operates on three conveyor levels with separate conveyors for all incoming and outgoing product - the top conveyor delivers the incoming product, a second conveyor transports all outgoing product, and a third conveyor transports off-cuts. All raw material is automatically conveyed to and from the operators. This involves far less handling and significantly increases capacity compared to a manual table or tray system. Handling all raw material in a continuous flow considerably reduces the processing time and helps increase worker productivity.
On the Standard Flowline for filleting, whole fish is automatically delivered to operators on the top conveyor. Waste is automatically discharged to a separate conveyor and fillets are released to be automatically conveyed to the Standard Flowline for trimming. All incoming and outgoing product is weighed with high accuracy and all data linked to each operator.
The ergonomic design, streamlining of processing and continuous data
collection enable processors to greatly reduce processing time and enhance
worker performance with higher throughput, yield and product quality.
