Shrimp Processing Equipment for Modern Enterprises

Jul. 26, 2022

Shrimp processing equipment has become one of the most important components of any seafood factory. More and more owners of shrimp processing factories appreciate the automation and improvement of production that these machines deliver. Why is this type of food and processing equipment so important to the food industry?

 

People are eating more and more fish, crustaceans, and mollusks. Nutrition experts believe that fish and other seafood are much healthier than meat from land animals. They also bring numerous benefits to the human body. They contain wholesome protein, as well as vitamins D and A, as well as unsaturated fatty acids, necessary for the proper functioning of the brain and immune system. In 1950, an average inhabitant of our planet had 6 kg of these creatures per year. In 2010, it was already 18 kg (these figures include not only what goes directly to our plates, but also the production of food for farm animals).

Worldwide production in the shrimp processing industry

 

Since the 1970s, the production of farmed shrimp has become increasingly popular and continues to grow to meet the growing demand for seafood, especially in Europe, North America, and Asia.

 

In 2003, 1.6 million tons of farmed shrimps were delivered to the markets, their market value amounted to USD 9 billion. So we can see that there is a very significant area of fisheries management.

 

The most important producers are China, Thailand, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, and Vietnam.

 

Thailand is also the largest exporter of farmed seafood. The remaining 25% is grown mainly in South America and, on a smaller scale, in the USA.

 

Shrimp processing

 

A huge change in seafood processing was the invention of the production line, which contributed to the acceleration of production and the restructuring of the manufacturing process. Successive factories and enterprises began to appreciate the innovative solutions brought by the production line and automation and began to implement them in their shrimp processing facilities.

 

Shrimp processing machinery became most needed in the second half of the 20th century when the demand for this type of food increased worldwide.

 

Technological innovations were a response to the increased demand and the need to shorten the production time, and are also intended to ensure better hygiene and safety of employees and consumers.

 

Nowadays, more and more shrimp processing plants have fully automated seafood processing machines or employ only a few people to operate or inspect them. As a result, the production of these enterprises increased, and the purchase costs of machinery for the factory are sometimes returned in a few months.

 

Which shrimp processing machines are the best choice for seafood processing factories?

 

A huge benefit of Shrimp Steam Cooking Machines is Automation

 

 

They ensure that the shrimps placed in it are cooked evenly with the help of steam. They handle large volumes of processed shrimp effortlessly and minimize employee contact with the processed product through this shrimp processing equipment.

 

The operation of Zolim shrimp steam cooking machine is easy and in a short time, it can be adapted to production in a shrimp processing facility.

 

Almost every shrimp processing facility should have Shrimp Peelers

 

 

One of the most important machines in shrimp processing factories is Shrimp Peeler.

 

Their task is to separate the shells from the shrimp before the further shrimp processing process. They allow the operator to have full control of the peeler angle depending on the size of the shrimp. This machine maximizes the peeler’s ability to fully remove the shell without damaging the shrimp and keeping it whole.

 

The ZL-QK70 Shrimp Peeling Machine is one of the most frequently ordered machines.
