Abalone farmers looking for greater efficiencies are trending towards higher levels of automation. Grading systems for abalone are moving from manual sorting by “eye” to advanced grading systems using load cells and computerized control.
Our abalone system is a customized rotary grading system as used in the oyster industry. Abalone can be graded in three different size classes in this grading machine recommended for the grading of abalone from 10mm to 50mm shell length.
The grader is built in a combination of 316 stainless steel and fiberglass. It includes a small recirculation system for cleaning and cycling of the water in the delivery unit.
