FDS104 is the compact Freeze Drum Skinning machine from TRIO
The FDS104 is the compact Freeze Drum Skinning machine from TRIO, and is manufactured from stainless steel and non-corrosive materials.
The machine operates on the principle that the skin of the fillet freezes to the cold, rotating drum, and thus is held in position. The freezing is approx, 1/10mm deep. A rotating band knife cuts the fillet away from the skin, and the skin is then scraped off the drum. The thickness of the cut, and thus the depth of the skinning, is infinitely adjustable between 0-12mm.
The FDS104 has an indirect cooling system. The refrigeration unit is sealed, and the cooling is transferred to the drum surface by a secondary circuit. The condenser can be cooled by freshwater, seawater or air.
The FDS machines slice the skin away from the fillet without putting any strain on the fish meat or the skin.
