The APOLLO grading machine was developed in 1981 and it is a top-quality product within the area of fish farming. One of the basic advantages of the APOLLO grading machine is that it has proven its usefulness in the production, as it has been well-tried and tested thoroughly.
Standard editions of the APOLLO grading machine have 4,5,7 or 10 tracks. The grader is made in AISI 316 acid-resisting stainless steel, which makes it prefect to use in working situations involving seawater.
How does it function?
The APOLLO grading machine is a specially developed machine, which can sort living fish such as salmon, trout and eel. It sorts the fish in 3 or 4 different sizes by means of rollers, which are situated 2 by 2.
The rollers run against each other so that the fish are "lifted" up onto the rollers. When the gaps between the rollers are big enough, the fish will eventually slide down and end up in grading sizes below the rollers.The rollers are adjusted according to the size of the fish. Any adjustment of the width between the rollers is made with two finger screws and the width varies from 0 up to 36 mm.
