Turnkey Solutions for Pelagic - Onshore

Fully Automatic

From receiving to packing and palletizing.

Short Processing Time

Sorted, fully processed and ready for delivery in shortest time possible.

Engineered for High Quality

The fast processing time and non-pressure, horizontal freezing ensures highest product quality.

Large Capacity, Small Footprint

Up to 1,000 tons per 24 hours in only 3,000 m2 of floor space.

Automatic Quality Control

Identifies damaged individuals and unwanted species with full product traceability.

Low Temps = High Quality

From vessel to freezers, product never above 0°C — results in accurate grading, better texture for processing and superior overall quality.

Skaginn 3X has developed the principal technologies that distinguish its turnkey solution for pelagic processing onshore, including automated fluid ice delivery, computer visioning and precision automation to ensure efficient yet gentle handling. However, our designers and engineers also have considerable experience when interfacing with existing platforms.

The Skaginn 3X process maximizes product quality by keeping temperatures consistently low, minimizing processing times and employing non-pressure freezing methods. 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 land-based pelagic 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.

1. Product enters facility, weighed in and sorted by mechanical grader for shape and size
  • Refrigeration from vessel maintained in receiving tank with RSW
  • Low temps prevent product from softening—firm product results in most accurate grading
2. Product chilled with Fluid Ice System at all buffering points
  • Consistent low temp shortens freezing time and prevents bacterial growth
  • Temp range of -5°C to 0°C
  • Slurry thickness adjustable 10% to 50%
  • Automatic delivery system throughout the process
3. Product enters QC-Vision Batcher™ for quality control and batch-weighing
  • Computerized vision system regulates tank levels, infeed, buffering and flow
  • System rapidly analyzes each unit from both sides to determine size, weight, species and any damage
  • Creates a record of each unit for full traceability
  • Rejected units rerouted for further processing
  • Up to 15 batches per minute with high weight-accuracy
4. Batches bagged, brine-injected and vacuum-sealed
  • Non-transparent polybags provide superior protection
  • 260kg rolls last up to 12 hours in production
  • Low-cost PE film (50µm)
5. Automated loading into Automatic Contact Freezer in tray or carton
  • Non-pressure freezing preserves natural appearance
  • Fully frozen in 3-4 hours
  • Low yield loss
  • Each freezer handles up to 100 tons per 24 hours
  • Runs up to 10 days between defrosting
  • Eliminates heavy lifting for safer working conditions
  • Wagon-on-rail transport eliminates forklifts on factory floor
  • Gentle handling maintains high product quality
  • Low total packaging costs per 1000 kg of finished product
7. Equipment designed for use with robust cleaning system without halting production
  • Centralized system with high and low pressure washes, detergent and disinfection in a single unit
  • Easy to operate and low maintenance requirements
  • Up to eight operators can work simultaneously
