Lubrication solutions for the fish & seafood industry

The fish and seafood industry is a heavy-duty industry, where lubricants suffer while operating under harsh marine environments where exposure to saltwater and constant humidity can pose significant challenges.

Superior protection against wear and corrosion and thermal stability in cold environments are key performance requirements. Lubricants play a vital role in ensuring smooth and efficient operations while meeting the unique challenges posed by this environment.

These are the specific equipment and operations on an onboard fish/seafood processing vessel:

Hydraulic power units
Fishing vessels usually have a constant flow hydraulic power unit onboard that is a source of power to other devices. The efficiency of the hydraulic power unit is highly reliant on the right hydraulic fluid.

Fish/Seafood processing
Once the fish or seafood is onboard the vessel it goes to further processing which could include cutting, peeling and further cooking or baking.

Mincing machine
After the fish has been filleted – bones and skin removed, the fish is minced. The minced fished is washed several times to clean blood, small bones, and impurities from the mince and then pumped into a decanter to drain the fluids out of the mince before further processing and packaging.

Canning and packaging
The last step in onboard fish and seafood processing is canning and packing of the product.
