Valka has installed a new grading and packing line for fresh fish products at Nyfiskur in Sandgerdi, Iceland.
Valka is launching the patent-pending RapidAligner, capable of grading, batching and automatically aligning products into boxes or trays.
Icelandic company Valka had its patent-pending packing line on show at the Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition and says combining its Valka RapidFeed in-feed control and dispersion machine with its new Valka RapidWeigher multi-head weigher results in significant savings in terms of reduced product waste and give-away.
Valka RapidFeed says its new flow control system has boosted product handling so that two workers can now handle 1,000kg per hour compared to 600kg before. It quotes Grandi assistant plant manager Isleifur Arnarson as saying: "When we installed the freezer, we had some doubts that we could operate it efficiently at full capacity. As things have turned out, results have been better than we ever hoped, and the RapidFeed has been a key factor in achieving this.
