Valka offers selected equipment and software for processing and packing onboard a vessel

Marine Version Cutter

The marine version of Valka Cutter is specifically designed for operating onboard a vessel. The machine in is shorter in length which makes it easier to fit into limited spaces marine vessels have to offer. The machine is more rugged with specially strengthened and extra legs to support it and rubber cushions to reduce high-frequency vibrations commonly found in vessels. The X-ray detector has been put in a housing that was specially designed for Valka and has an IP54 protection rating. Specific conveyor belts with excellent friction to fish are used.
All control unit compartments and electrical cabinets are specifically heated or cooled and dry air is directed into the area to prevent condensation.

Standalone X-ray Scanning

The Valka standalone X-ray is designed for detection bones in fish fillets or portions with automatic sorting of defected pieces. The system can locate bones down to 0,2 mm in size The system can reject the pieces found with bones and report the position on an image. The X-ray system uses low energy X-ray technology which gives the highest contrast possible and more reliable detection of small bones than with conventional technology.

Hygienic Design

When designing of new machines, we strive to have all of our products meet the strictest hygienic standards.

  • Easy access to all machine surfaces for cleaning, disinfecting, and inspecting purposes

  • Eliminating corners and edges that could pose sanitary risks as well as hidden areas in constructions

  • Sloping surfaces that allow liquids to flow quickly and hygienically into vessels

  • All stainless steel components that directly contact the fish are electropolished to ensure optimum resistance to corrosion and ease of cleaning

  • All other steel is acid cleaned (pickled) for optimum resistance to corrosion and ease of cleaning

  • Use of sheet metal steel and open U-shaped structure and circular pipes where feasible

  • Drip pans under all conveyors are equipped with quick release hoses to floor drains for ease of sanitation

  • For long distance runs, electric cables are mounted on wire tray in as straight as line as possible
