Cleaning Machine for Snow Crab: Opilio or Bairdi

Automated Shine

BAADER 2602 introduces a completely new way of cleaning crab: Instead of cleaning individual clusters, the BAADER 2602 conveys the whole crab maintaining strength of legs and improving resistance to external forces. Whole raw material processing minimizes leg damage and loss.

Safety first: the BAADER 2602 avoids worker injuries by hiding all processing behind state-of-the-art protection covers. BAADER 2602 removes the majority of raw material contaminants like barnacles, leech eggs, moss, and slime.

Depending on legal requirements, BAADER suggests gentle stunning of the raw material prior to the process in order to assure loss of conciousness.
