KER recently installed salmon processing equipment for Kilkeerin Salmon, Galway, Ireland.
𝐒𝐭𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐥𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐒𝐭𝐞𝐞𝐥 𝐈𝐧𝐟𝐞𝐞𝐝 𝐡𝐨𝐩𝐩𝐞𝐫: Fitted in Kilkerrin salmon factory last week. The tank’s purpose is to handle large fish like salmon which will be received from tankers via a pinch valve. Tank has a capacity of 22m³. Salmon are then taken from the tank via a hopper before being transported onwards for further processing.
𝐏𝐢𝐧𝐜𝐡 𝐕𝐚𝐥𝐯𝐞: Works using compressed air to inflate the rubber interior to form a water tight seal. This will stop fish & water flow with a strong focus on protecting fish from damage. This valve can be operated using a KER installed touchscreen.
𝐑𝐞𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐧 𝐖𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐕𝐚𝐥𝐯𝐞: Automatically returns water to the tanker.
