Certified Flowscale Sets Benchmark
Designed for high-volume weighing of Pelagic species, Whitefish and Salmon, Marelâ€™s new Flowscale is a self-contained belt weigher with EU, OIML and US NTEP approvals.
This Flowscale sets an industry benchmark in its category by gently weighing up to an impressive 100 tons of product per hour in a continuous flow.
Approved weight measurement + soft handling
More efficient and effective than predecessors, Marelâ€™s compact, durable high-capacity Flowscale was specifically innovated to maintain source quality by handling delicate products softly and gently. It replaces older versions, as well as traditional, less product-friendly methods of weighing that by their very nature diminish product quality, for example hopper-scale weighing.
This Flowscale operates similarly to a water or electricity meter: it continuously accumulates the weight of a product moving across it, all the while displaying this data on a sealed, M2200 terminal, and then registers the final weight for each lot. It is ideal for measuring the total catch of fish coming from a fishing vessel into a processing factory, as well as for measuring the total amount of food material in and out of a specific process.
The Marel Flowscale is Weights & Measures approved for use in commercial businesses, and has received EU, OIML and US NTEP certifications. This fulfills legal requirements, which widely mandate fish processors to have an approved, in-weighing process for raw materials.
INNOVA reporting and cross-referencing
Marelâ€™s production management software, Innova, empowers processors to monitor and control the flow of material in real time. Each flow can be set up through the system based on customers, vessels and other specifications. Throughout the process, Innova collects flow information and generates reports according to need. Moreover, the system includes Alibi memory storage that can be cross-referenced with Innova reports for validation purposes and legal requirements.
