Water Defrosting of Fish


The Peruza fish defroster is designed for industrial defrosting of frozen fish blocks or IQF fish products in water. The advantages of water thawing are that it minimises weight loss during the defrosting operation compared to traditional methods. Water defrosting is used when a high capacity defrosting process is needed in factories / fish processors with the fish loaded into the machine with or without boxes or crates.


Continuous brining line


The Peruza continuous brining line is developed for medium to high volume fish processors and factories. It reduces the time required for brining operations in commercial applications and can be used in line with the Peruza defrosting line and nobbing line.

The fish infeed can be fed manually or automatically with the product being brined in a special, automatically prepared brining fluid. A constant brining time is assured by the water flow and conveyor belt moving at a constant speed. (more…)

Automatic brine preparation and packing line


The Peruza fish brining and packing line is developed to dose salt solution (brine) and fish into plastic trays for medium to high volume fish processors and factories, with if required the addition of spices and flavours to the fish.

Main benefits

  • Controllable brining time
  • Easy cleaning – due to hydraulic lift
  • High capacity
  • Automatic Brine preparation unit

Volumetric batching line


The Peruza fish volumetric dosing line is designed to fill a constant volume of small pelagic fish into  trays or boxes before freezing with an even fill level.

Volumetric batching is used when high volume batches at high speed are needed, for example in large  fish factories / processor application. Batches can be up to 11 kg.

Main benefits

  • Increased productivity up to 20 batches/min
  • Only 6 operators can tray fill 12 tonns of product
  • Ergonomic operation

Technical Specification

Equipment dimension (LxWxH) Double line

7300 x 3000 x 5200 mm

5900 x 2800 x 2600 mm

Number of operators 6
Electrical power 2 kW

Manual Grading Line


Manual grading line is developed to sort out more valuable fish species in the production process.

Manual grading line comes in various executions and lengths. Available options for 5 till 24 operators and can be equipped with platforms for operators, which minimises contact area with the floor.

Fish is supplied to the infeed hopper. Fish can be supplied by forklift or by choosing PERUZA tipper for containers. (more…)

Roller grading line for pelagic fish


Roller grading line is designed to calibrate fish by its thickness. The design is made for fresh small fish like sprats and Baltic herring species and similar ones like sardines, pilchards and anchovies.

Fish is supplied into receiving tank, where hopper- elevator lifts them up and drops onto distribution chute that later guides them onto rotating rollers. Tank is equipped with water level control system that helps to control permanent fish flow in any stage of work. (more…)

Autofeeder for pelagic fish


Auto-feeder is designed to reduce need for manpower for operating fish cutting machines with pocket conveyors. Equipment automatically delivers fish from hopper tank and distributes them into cutting machine pockets automatically, adjusting speed with the speed of cutting machine. PERUZA designed autofeeder is compatible with Cabinplant, SEAC, AB, VMK, Arenco, Baader and similar cutting machines.

Tank of hopper elevator is filled with fish by operator. Elevating belt evenly brings the fish to the head- tail orientation, unit, further fish is proceeded to infeed units. (more…)

Autonobbing for pelagic fish


Autonobbing is designed to HG or HGT without need for operators infeeding the fish into cutting pockets. Equipment automatically delivers fish from hopper tank to cutting unit and removes
head and de-guts fish with option of cutting tail. Ready product falls into crates or onto ready product conveyor which comes as an option for equipment.

Tank of hopper elevator is filled with fish by operator. Elevating belt evenly brings the fish to the head- tail orientation, unit, further fish is separated one from another and infeeded into head cutting unit. (more…)

Drum type nobbing line


PERUZA Drum type nobbing is designed as high capacity small fish nobbing equipment. Equipment can process up to 1000 small pelagic fish per minute. Drum type nobbing can produce HG or HGT fixed length product.

PERUZA Drum type nobbing is used for fish 9 – 13 cm, such as sprats, anchovies, capelin and other. Processing slighlty out of range can reduce output. (more…)

Salmon deslimer/fillet washing machine


Deslimer and Fillet washing machine is designed to remove impurities and remaining from the surface of fish. Deslimer operates whole fish while Fillet washing operates with fillets.                                           The process of washing is important to significantly decrease the number bacteria on whole or gutted fish and increase overall product hygiene levels .

During washing operation fresh water from tap is used to wash the Salmon or salmon fillets. Dirty water is guided through the filters and then to sewage. (more…)
