Turnkey Solutions for Aquaculture

Optimized Bleeding

Efficient, multi-stage bleeding technology based on first-in, first-out principle delivers higher end-product quality.

No Need for Ice

SUB-CHILLING™ turns product into its own refrigerant making ice irrelevant—reduces transport costs, extends shelf life and results in far superior product.

Value Realized in Raw Material Conveyance

The ValuePump™ replaces belts and tubs with closed-system, low-pressure conveyance combined with the value-added processes (bleeding, chilling, etc.).

Automated Tub Handling

From lifting and filling to washing and stacking, gentle automated tub handling increases efficiency, reduces labor requirements and extends useful life of tubs.

Low Temps = High Quality

Throughout process, product never above 0°C —results in minimized gaping, extended shelf life and superior overall quality.

Based on extensive collaboration with the industry, Skaginn 3X has pioneered the breakthrough technologies that distinguish its turnkey solution for aquaculture processing, including SUB-CHILLING™, raw material handling and precision tub automation to ensure efficient yet gentle handling. Our designers and engineers also have considerable experience when interfacing with existing platforms.

The Skaginn 3X process maximizes product quality by efficiently bleeding the product, keeping temperatures consistently low and minimizing processing times. Moreover, Skaginn 3X systems are all designed with automation, energy efficiency and low maintenance requirements in mind. The equipment is optimized for easy yet thorough cleaning to support industry standards for hygiene.

System Overview

The Skaginn 3X turnkey solution for aquafish processing is highly customizable. Below is an example of a buildout, although the solution offers great flexibility and is invariably configured to meet each client’s particular needs by the Skaginn 3X team of engineers and designers in close collaboration with the client.

  • Can be implemented at various stages of production
  • Infeed automatically controlled to keep system at optimal capacity
  • Gentle and efficient product handling
  • Reduces need for forklifts
  • Increased production flow—infeed never a limiting factor
  • Gentle tub handling lengthens useful life of tubs
  • Integrated Automatic Tub Washing System
2. Re-fresh raw materials brought to processing temperature with RoteX Thawing®
  • Precise temperature and timing computer-controlled and supported by first-in, first-out (FIFO) principle
  • Minimal drip loss delivers better yield
  • Low temp thaw inhibits bacterial growth and surface damage
  • Efficient in terms of both water and electricity
3. FiltreX Filtering System greatly reduces water requirements during processing
  • Saves up to 20,000 liters of water per day
  • Reduces bacterial count
  • Residues can be collected for further processing
4. ValuePump™ sets new standard in raw material logistics
  • Combines conveyance, first-stage bleeding and initial chilling in a single process
  • Closed, low-pressure system is gentle and hygienic
  • Replaces belts and tubs with value-added conveyance
5. Regulated second-stage bleeding and chilling supported by RoteX™ Aquaculture technology
  • Temperature and bleeding times computer-controlled to ensure optimal flow
  • Precision controls reduce energy usage
  • Patented side injection circulates water or fluid ice to evacuate blood efficiently
6. Revolutionary SUB-CHILLING™ puts product into ideal state for transport and further processing
  • Product leaves tank with a core temp of -1°C – 0.5°C
  • Product becomes its own refrigerant, making ice irrelevant—reducing transport costs, lowering carbon footprint and resulting in far superior product
  • Reduces filleting defects and minimizes gaping
  • Extends shelf life by about 4+ days
