De-skinning of mackerels without chemicals

The complete line is used for deskinning of mackerel before cooking and cutting – primarily to be filled in club or P-long cans.  

The entire process is controlled from one master control panel for adjustment of for instance time and temperature.

We know all about mackerels

In an age of declining fish stocks and fishing quotas, raw seafood is an increasingly valuable commodity. Even small amounts of excess waste can have a dismal effect on your bottom line.

Cabinplant specializes in developing processing lines that minimize waste through gentle and optimal treatment of raw material.

We also have in-depth experience with designing and manufacturing highly efficient plants that can reliably process large quantities rapidly and consistently.

Gentle handling, efficient  workflow, improved reliability: they all add up to higher yields.


No use of chemicals

IQF mackerels are fed onto the line where hot water is sprayed on the product to make the skin split and loosen.  Subsequently a specially designed tumbler deskins the mackerel – all in one continuous process.
