Conveyors are used to improve efficiency of food processing plants by reducing time wasted walking. They are also a great way to move objects that are too heavy for people to carry. Finally conveyors ensure safety by keeping humans away from robotic equipment.
Gravity conveyors rely on gravity for moving the products from one place to another. Rollers mounted on the conveyor spin allowing the objects to slide when pushed. Being one of the simplest conveyor types, gravity conveyors are a great starting point for improving processing plant efficiency.
Conveyor belts move objects from one end to another using a belt mounted on top of closely spaced rollers or a solid plate. Varied speed settings make it one of the most common conveyor types.
Modular conveyors are more sophisticated conveyors systems. Combining modules with different conveyors allows a virtually three dimensional movement. Their moving surface is great for products of different shapes and textures. Liquids can drip through the porous surface of the chain.
Screw systems are used for simultanoeus moving and cooling of food products. In the case of fish products it is also used for bleeding.
The bleeding tanks are a perfect on-board solution for fishing vesels as well as on-shore fish factories.
Through gentle handling of the fish the tanks automate a big part of gutting and bleeding process, which allows the fish to stay fresh longer. With controled bleeding time, anks are easy to use, maintain, and completely safe to operate.
Chilling tank is the perfect solution for cooling freshly caught fish or seafood, fresh meat and vegetables. The immersion chilling system ensures compact, fast and reliable chilling. The tank ensures a gentle handling of products with full control of the chilling time.
The tank is easy and safe to use. The cooling temperature is maintained by ice or cold-water heat exchanger.
Static constructions help ensure safety of employees and accesibility as well as safe assembly and maintenance of equipment necessary for food processing activities.
Platform and equipment
Food processing companies use platforms to esure that the workers can easily access the heightened pieces of machinery.
One of our customers required custom work platform and inspection station. The customer wanted to maximize floor space inside their existing food processing plant and working with the customer we were able to build over existing equipment and solve challenges caused by limited space.
There are countless areas that can become slippery in food production and handling facilities due to cleaning practices, food bi-products and/ or grease.
In order to keep employees safe and food safety practices stringent; hygienic slip resistant flooring can be incorporated into areas of concern. Areas around floor food scales can become particularly slippery from ingredients (wet or dry) and wash down processes.
Building on the strength of expanded metal as a platform, our walkway meshes provide superb grip underfoot and offer a highly effective solution for walkways and ramps. They’re rigorously tested and combine practicality with aesthetic appeal.
Hydraulic lifting devices
A is a type of lifting machine that uses the power of hydraulic liquid to raise and lower a platform without jerks or the use of complicated elevation equipment.
The liquid power in a hydraulic machine is a complicated component that has made lifting objects and people easier than ever.
Hydraulic lifts are used in many industries from factory production to medical equipment. When used properly, these lifts are idea for transporting objects and people of various weights to heights ranging from just a few feet off the ground to over 100 feet in the air.

Tub Handling & Infeed system
The Infeed of raw material is automatically controlled at a rate that keeps the processing line right at optimal capacity, this way there is an increased production flow.
The system ensures better handling of raw material as well as gentler tub handling. This means lower repair and replacement costs. Additional advantages are reduction of forklift usage and traffic. Automatic infeed reduces labor in comparason to manual infeed.
And let’s not forget that such a system reduces floor space usage in the infeed area where the tubs are stacked and handled automatically
Weighing, grading and dosing equipment helps you organize your daily production according to your customers’ needs. This equipment is indispensable to an efficient production line and at Lavango we can offer such equipment integration.
Since the scales, graders and dosing equipment have to be used in the most challenging food processing environments, it is highly important to have accurate, reliable and robust equipment from major producers worldwide, which is exactly what we offer.
Automate your palletizing process with a robotic solution from our Icelandic partner Samey. Using the latest robot technology available, Samey delivers a box palletizing system for use in the salmon and fish industry.
The system is designed to stack products on up to 10 pallets per cell simultaneously and handle a range of different sizes and products concurrently. The system is scalable and can be extended with additional robotic cells adding both capacity and product flexibility
This high speed fish descaling machine is equipped with four descaling spindles, two above and two under the fish, with different geometries, to descale high and narrow fish.
Haddock, Ocean perch, Tilapia and similar species will be descaled cleanly and efficiently. The speed through the machine is adjustable by one button. Suitable for installation on and off shore.
