The compact, high-capacity Flowscale was designed specifically to maintain quality by handling fish gently.
Certified Belt Weigher Raises Industry Standard
Designed for high-volume weighing of fish, Marel’s Flowscale is a self-contained belt weigher that sets an industry benchmark in its category by gently weighing up to 100 tons of fish per hour in a continuous flow.
“We’re very happy with the performance of the Flowscale,” says Robert Parsons – Vessel Manager M/V Northern Victor at Icicle Seafoods, Seattle, where a Marel Flowscale was recently installed.“We’ve noticed a significant improvement in handling and efficiency, which is great for maintaining the quality of the fish.”
More efficient and effective than predecessors, Marel’s compact, durable high-capacity Flowscale was specifically innovated to maintain source quality by handling delicate products softly and gently.
Stamp of Approval & Stamp of Quality
The compact, high-capacity Flowscale was designed specifically to maintain quality by handling fish gently. The Flowscale is more efficient and effective than its predecessors, and it replaces methods of weighing that inherently diminish product quality, such as hopper-scale weighing.
The Flowscale continuously records the weight of product moving across it and displays this data on an M2200 terminal, then registers the accumulated weight for each lot. It is ideal for measuring the total catch of fish coming from a fishing vessel into a processing factory, as well as for measuring the total amount of fish product in and out of a specific process.
Designed for high-volume weighing of Pelagic species, Whitefish and Salmon, Marel’s Flowscale is a self-contained belt weigher.
The Marel Flowscale is Weights & Measures approved for use in commercial businesses, and has received EU, OIML and US NTEP certifications. This fulfils legal requirements that widely mandate fish processors to have an approved, in-weighing process for raw materials.
Marel's production management software, Innova, empowers processors to monitor and control the flow of material in real time.
Reporting & Cross-Referencing with Innova
Using Innova Software Solutions, each flow can be set up through the system based on customer, vessel, and other specifications. Throughout the process, Innova collects flow information and generates reports as needed.
The system includes Alibi memory storage that can be cross-referenced with Innova reports for validation purposes and legal requirements.
