The shrimp industry’s accelerating global growth demands more efficient, higher-capacity, automated shrimp peeling. Laitram Machinery is making this revolutionary transition possible with technological advances and decades of applied expertise that deliver tremendous increases in processing profitability.
Rising demand…ever-increasing labor costs…a shrinking labor pool…narrower processing windows…more stringent food safety and traceability. These compounding forces are driving an accelerating and irreversible shift to automation. Automate now with Laitram to make this inevitable transition proactively with confidence.Automating the peeling process requires a comprehensive “systems approach” integrating multiple interactive machines with expert engineering and services to produce excellent long-term results. Laitram Machinery provides these complete Automated Peeling Systems for both Warm-Water (i.e. Vannamei and Gulf of Mexico) and Cold-Water (i.e. Borealis and Jordani) shrimp, complimented by expert Service and Optimization teams, to produce the highest possible shrimp quality, yield and throughput.
The unique Laitram Advantage:
Yields and quality are comparable or superior to manually-processed. Efficiently and automatically peels labor-intensive small shrimp. Quality is consistent and predictable.
Laitram Machinery has over 95% market-share on the US Gulf of Mexico and is now driving the global transition to automation in the historically hand-peeled Asian and Latin American farmed-raised industries.
Warm Water (Farmed Raised or Wild Caught) Standard Configuration
Laitram’s Cold-Water Shrimp Peeling System is a series of patented, optimized machines that delivers efficient, high-capacity, high-yield cooking and peeling of cold-water shrimp (prawns).Starting 50 years ago, Laitram Machinery developed patented cooking and peeling technologies specifically for cold-water shrimp, creating the North Atlantic and Pacific Northwest bulk-peeled shrimp industries, and has since continuously raised processing profitability by increasing its machine’s production efficiencies and capacities.
Each Cold-Water Peeling System is optimized for the application and is easy to operate and built to last for decades (durable materials and precision-machined and assembled components designed by experts with decades of shrimp-industry experience) -- and with Peeling Optimization Services, you have access to progressive, complementary services to optimize your process and plant to continuously maximize your profitability.
Laitram Machinery’s Process Control System for warm-water and cold-water applications provides operators with a single-window control-point and reliable real-time information to simplify and optimize operations. Each Process Control System is customized for the application.
