The first RoteX Thawing® system to be delivered to the Benelux in 2022 is set to support quality refreshed product in a new market

Skaginn 3X is proud to announce the first sale of its revolutionary RoteX Thawing® system in Benelux. The deal was secured in close collaboration with Dutch food equipment supplier IB Food Machines, who facilitated the sale. Based out of Urk, Netherlands the company advises food processing companies worldwide on their production process. The innovative, patented thawing system is designed to deliver high quality re-freshed product that matches the quality of fresh.


Creating opportunities in new markets

“Closing this sale is a promising start for future cooperation between Skaginn 3X and IB Food Machines in the area,” says Arnþór Halldórsson, Regional Sales Manager at Skaginn 3X. “Changes in market conditions and fishing quota allocations over the last few years have resulted in increased demand for thawing systems that allow producers to source frozen product and defrost when fresh fish is not available. The challenge is to maintain freshness and quality and the RoteX Thawing system is designed to do just that. The RoteX Thawing system is filling a gap in the market, allowing customers to produce quality refreshed product that matches the quality of fresh.

The best choice for thawing

IB Food Machines is an agent for Baader, Trio and a handful of other equipment manufacturers in the Benelux, and supplies both used and new equipment. Skaginn 3X is the latest addition to their portfolio. When IB Food Machines set out to find a best in class thawing system for its client, the RoteX Thawing® system was the best tool for the job. The system will be able to defrost and equalize 2.500 to 4.000 kg of fish per hour depending on fish size and species, and will be delivered in early 2022. Uniform product temperature is achieved with inline thawing and cooling. The process is continuous, eliminating stagnant equalization and storage in tubs, vats or totes and thereby minimizing manual labor and saving time. The system will deliver optimal thawing and cooling before production, which will preserve the quality to match that of fresh fish.


Increased shelf life and better production yield for onshore and onboard processing

Utilizing a patented process, the RoteX Thawing® system keeps the frozen product in constant motion for faster and more efficient thawing. Thawing and equalizing are performed in a continuous flow resulting in higher production yield and better shelf life on the refresh market.

Preventing drip loss, increasing yield, and saving on both water and labor, the RoteX Thawing® system has become the favored thawing solution of producers around the world, and is available for both onshore and onboard applications.
