Automatic fish descaling machine - Fish scaling machine


Semi Automatic Descaler

The ST521 SAM is an automatic fish descaling machine, re-engineered from the vegetable industry, descales +/-20 kg of whole fish (including ice) at a time . The rotating motion of the bottom plate brings the fish into a circular flow. The static abrasive side plates and the bottom plate scrape against the scales and removes them in the process. The water washes the scales and ice out of the system and will be collected in the scale basket where the water will be drained. The operator sets the timer for each batch and therefore has time for a second task. The fillet will remain undamaged, but the abrasion of the plates will also work on the fins and head of the fish. Filleting the fish before selling removes the these areas.


Can be used for descaling:

  • Sea bream
  • Sea bass (grouper)
  • Redfish and more similar whole fish of +/-30cm
  • Fish with scales
  • Sea bream, sea bass (grouper), redfish and more similar whole fish of +/-30cm
  • +/- 20kg per time with or without ice
  • Descaled fish needs to be filleted and not intended for display*
    * Due to the abrasive effect of the descaling pads and disc, the scales are removed, but other exterior parts of the fish are also affected. After filleting you cannot tell the difference between manually and machinal descaled fillets.
