Water Defrosting


Fish defroster is designed for frozen fish block or IQF product defrosting in water. Water defrosting minimises weight loss in defrosting operation. Water defrosting is used when high capacity defrosting process is needed.

Frozen fish blocks are manually loaded in  the defroster in its whole length. If fish is defrosted in boxes, fish together with the boxes can be put into water. Boxes are then removed when the fish is separated from the box surface.

Frozen fish blocks are defrosted in warm water and air flow. Defrosted fish separates from the block and fall onto the conveyor belt which transports it out of the defroster to the next technological unit.
Water temperature and water level is regulated automatically with the help of PLC.

For device operation the customer must provide electricity, water, hot steam and drainage.

Main benefits

• Easy fish loading – it is possible to load fish
with crates and remove creates afterwards
• Easy cleaning – due to hydraulic lift
• Ergonomic operation.
