The RID FISH Welfare pump replaces the conveyor belt, Based on Archimedes' screw, MMC First Process has developed a game changer for the factory of the future, which enables more gentle, hygienic and sustainable fish handling compared with the conveyor belt.
The challenge was to make the screw that shifts the water gentle enough to handle the fish and not simply push them along, but also include suction. The solution was to use air. MMC First Process has created a pump in which the balance between trapped air and water inside the pump ensures that the fish have a very comfortable final journey.
We have tested it with eggs. The egg shells didn’t crack. I also tested it with tomatoes, hundreds of times. They also came out completely intact and unscathed.
