Dark Meat Removal

TRIO FTC Double Lane Dark Meat Remover

FTC Double-lane Dark Meat Remover (DMR) uses two sets of circular knife to cut the dark meat wedge from the fillet. The circular knife is adjusted to cut to the required depth and width of the wedge of dark meat left after deep skinning. The surface of the fillets after Trio FTC DMR processing is smooth and “natural”.

Due to lipid oxidation, the dark muscle in particular, is known to cause a rancid taste and smell in fish fillets that has been stored fresh or frozen. With a FTC Dark Meat Remover (DMR), this problem can be avoided and the quality of the fillets greatly improved.

  • The fillet is held in position by a vacuum belt or spike belt.
  • The cutting depth along the fillet is constant (except for tail) and adjustable.
  • Cutting profile can be adjusted from circular to elliptical.
  • Dark meat is removed by a vacuum system and can be recovered.
