AlfaPlus uses the power of centrifugal separation instead of the rotary screens and presses used in conventional surimi processing to increase yields and eliminate several process stages.
AlfaPlus handles all kinds of fish, in fillets or trimmings, and features exceptional flexibility in handling capacity changes. AlfaPlus is compact and easily modified to fit existing plants.
Minimising fish protien loss
The AlfaPlus system produces surimi from butterfly cuts (with or without the backbone attached), fillets or trimmings. Protein losses from washing and dewatering are kept to a minimum in the AlfaPlus system equipped with Alfa Laval decanters specially designed and optimized for surimi processing.
The combination of the optimal decanter configuration and process control allows seafood processors to recover 70% of the incoming mince into high-quality surimi. The surimi produced using AlfaPlus is of highly consistent quality compared with conventional processing, which produces two or three different grades.
