Value Added Mince Solutions from Skaginn 3X is an advanced mince processing system for fish frames and is ideal to increase material production and efficiency. After the fish has been processed by filleting machine, the fish frames can withhold up to 28% of the meat that can be minced and obtained by the system. The system is composed of a flexible range of cost-effective modules, from standalone machines up to complete system. All equipment in the system have easy access to cleaning and can tolerate high-pressure water, foam, and detergents.
The system is composed of frame cutting machine, mince washing drum, mince press and mince packing press. The system does not include mincing machine.
The frame cutting machine receives fish frames from filleting machine and separates the swim bladder and blood part with a bone section from the frames. The swim bladder and the bone section is dropped down from underneath and from the end of the frame cutter either into a basket or onto a takeaway conveyor. After the swim bladder and bone section removal, the frames and belly flap bones are delivered to the mincing machine that delivers fish mince and skeletons separately.
All mince from the mincing machine is delivered to a washing drum, which washes off any remaining blood and debris from the mince. The washing quality of mince depends on water usage.
From the washing drum, all mince enters special mince press unit. The mince press ensures that all mince that is delivered out of the system has even water percentage. The percentage of water can be adjusted by means of adjusting the outlet end of the mince press.
Once the mince comes from the mince press it is conveyed into mince packing machine. This machine delivers portions automatically, ready to be packed. From there the batch can be put onto platform scale and the weight can be monitored and adjusted to more accurate weight.
