Based on extensive collaboration with the industry, Skaginn 3X has pioneered the breakthrough technologies that distinguish its customized turnkey solution for groundfish processing onshore. These technologies improve logistics and product handling, enhance productivity and increase overall product value.

Starting with the end result in mind, the most valuable product comes from superior raw material. And whether your production is based on fresh or re-fresh raw material, value is best preserved when product is maintained at just under 0°C  throughout the process.

The Skaginn 3X solution creates these optimal processing conditions through technology like fluid ice delivery and the Super-Chiller™—combined with gentle and efficient product handling from precision automation. Moreover, Skaginn 3X systems are all designed with labor-saving automation, energy efficiency and low maintenance requirements in mind.

System Overview

The Skaginn 3X turnkey solution for groundfish onshore 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. The ValuePump™ sets new standard for raw material and/or by-product logistics (whole round fish, roe, liver, heads and frames, etc.)
  • Replaces conveyor belts or tubs
  • Presents added-value options like chilling, heating, brine freezing, marinating, bleeding, surface disinfection, etc.
  • Closed system minimizes exposure to outside environment
  • Conveyance through low-pressure system ensures gentle handling
3. Re-fresh raw materials brought to optimal 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
4. FiltreX Filtering System greatly reduces water requirements during filleting and other processing
  • Saves up to 20,000 liters of water per day
  • Reduces bacterial count
  • Residues can be collected for further processing
5. Fresh/re-fresh product kept just under 0°C with Fluid Ice System at all buffering points
  • Consistent low temp shortens freezing time and inhibits bacterial growth
  • Temp range of -5°C to 0°C
  • Slurry thickness adjustable 10% to 50%
  • Automatic delivery system throughout the process
6. Product brought to ideal processing state in Super-Chiller™
  • Combination contact and blast operation chills rapidly
  • Ideal state to minimize yield loss in skinning, waterjet cutting and other processing
  • Reduce reliance on ice
7. Product skinned with Sub-Zero Skinner
  • Technology specially designed for fillets in sub-zero state
  • Improved texture for superior fillet quality
  • Effective with even delicate species like haddock
  • Minimal yield loss
8. Product frozen in IQF Tunnel Freezer
  • Crust-freezing and full-freezing belts in single unit
  • No belt marks—product retains natural appearance
  • Up to 5 tons per hour
9. Mince Solutions reclaim unrealized value in by-products
  • Material savings realized as up to 28% of machined frame’s weight can be reclaimed as high-value mince
  • Mince quality is maximized through best-practice washing and pressing.
  • Recovering mince from frames increases revenue while reducing waste
  • Meeting growing demand for frames in Asian market
  • Process is flexible as mince’s water content is easily adjustable
