Subject: Fish grader machine - Clasificadora
The APOLLO grading machine was developed in 1981 and it is a top-quality product within the area of fish farming. One of the basic advantages of the APOLLO grading machine is that it has proven its usefulness in the production, as it has been well-tried and tested thoroughly
Standard editions of the APOLLO grading machine have 4,5,7 or 10 tracks. The grader is made in AISI 316 acid-resisting stainless steel, which makes it prefect to use in working situations involving seawater.
How does it function?
The APOLLO grading machine is a specially developed machine, which can sort living fish such as salmon, trout and eel. It sorts the fish in 3 or 4 different sizes by means of rollers, which are situated 2 by 2.
The rollers run against each other so that the fish are "lifted" up onto the rollers.
When the gaps between the rollers are big enough, the fish will eventually slide down and end up in grading sizes below the rollers.The rollers are adjusted according to the size of the fish. Any adjustment of the width between the rollers is made with two finger screws and the width varies from 0 up to 36 mm.
One of the unique qualities that the APOLLO grading machine possesses is that it can be adjusted in both angle and height in order to match the working environment at hand.
If a greater slide-angle is wanted, it is possible to adjust the height of the machine trough the rear wheel. The wheel can be adjusted from 10 cm to 30 cm ( in 10 cm intervals ). Nosewheel unadjusted (low slide-angle) This kind of adjustment can be very useful if the activity level of the fish varies. During the summer when the weather is especially hot, the fish tend to be more active than usual. When the weather is cold, the opposite happens
