For Peeling Larger Quantities — System Configuration Selection

In addition to the model Jonsson peeler, a system includes platforms, stairs, and peeled shrimp inspection conveyors. Selection of the best system for you depends on these considerations:

  • Jonsson model selected for the styles to be peeled,
  • Relative cost of labor and water at your facility,
  • The size and shape of the space available, and
  • What peeling capacity you want.

Jonsson systems are:

  • Modular, and therefore easy to expand, rearrange.
  • All stainless steel with non slip, self draining fiberglass treads and decking, meet OSHA standards
  • Based on years of experience
  • Designed for the best use of Jonsson models for both operation and maintenance
  • Permit the most efficient use of peeled shrimp inspection labor.

This is a 6 unit water conservation system in use

Jonsson peeled shrimp inspection conveyors use water from the peelers to provide water fed troughs for cleaning fingers after handwork. Water is then discharged to drains under the peelers.

Value Systems

A Jonsson Value System delivers shrimp from a pair of peeling stations to a single inspection conveyor. It is called “value” because equipment costs are less than a Water Conservation System and it may use less inspection labor.

Considerations

  • Combines most of the advantages of original and water conservation systems.
  • Best control over machine and operator performance because the output of both machines can be compared side by side, continuously.
  • One inspector may be able to handle output from 2 machines depending on the style being peeled and condition of shrimp.
  • Expansion must be in pairs.
  • No limit to the number of stations in a line.

Water Consumption Average water use for each unit is: 35 gph at 30 psi and 41 gph at 40 psi. or 0.13 m3 at 2 bar and 0.16 m3 at 3 bar.

Recommendation Jonsson Value Systems are well suited for model 61, 60, and 65 systems and are well suited for double row arrangements. They are often the best choice for installations with 2, 4 or more units.

Water Conservation Systems

Peeled shrimp are discharged onto an inspection conveyor using only the water from the peeling station. No additional water is used.

Considerations

  • Lowest water use.
  • Easiest system to expand — economically.
  • Excellent control over machine and operator performance.
  • Requires two people per station.
  • Systems can have any number of stations in a line.

Recommendation This configuration is ideal for Models 60, 61 and 65 systems, especially for tail-on processing. Particularly well suited for double-row systems.

Original Systems

Shrimp from several machines are collected by a flume that delivers them to an inspection conveyor.

Considerations

  • No control over individual machine, operator performance.
  • Lower equipment costs for larger systems.
  • Potentially, more flexible labor use.
  • Group inspection is less efficient and less effective than individual inspection systems.
  • Expansion limited to adding a second row.
  • Higher water consumption — Average water use for each unit is 78 gph at 30 psi and 92 gph at 40 psi. or 0.21 m3 at 2 bar and 0.35 m3 at 3 bar depending on system size.

Recommendation  This configuration can be used for Model 64 systems, with a maximum of 4 machines discharging onto an inspection conveyor or for a Model 60, 61 system with up to 3 machines in a row. Suitable for a double row system of 6 or 8 peeling stations. High water use and combining the output of peelers are important limitations.

Econo Systems

Shrimp from several machines are discharged directly on a long inspection conveyor.

Considerations

  • No control over individual machine, operator performance.
  • Lower water use than an original system.
  • Higher equipment costs than an original system.
  • Potentially, more flexible labor use, but
  • Group inspection is less efficient and less effective than individual inspection systems.
  • Expansion is limited to adding a second row.
  • Cleaning is more challenging.

Recommendation  This configuration can be used for Model 64 systems, with a maximum of 4 machines discharging onto an inspection conveyor. Suitable for a double row system of 6 or 8 peeling stations. Difficulty of cleaning and combining the output of peelers are important limitations.

Integrated Systems

Several system designs can become integrated systems for a continuous product flow. Simply add platform access stairs, a peeled shrimp collection conveyor and a shell discharge collection conveyor.

Considerations

  • More automation can provide additional labor savings.
  • Require somewhat more floor space.
  • Higher equipment costs.
  • Difficult to expand, but easy to replicate.
  • Suitable for single or double row Water Conservation, Integrated Systems, and Value Integrated Systems.

Recommendation These systems are ideal for larger installations that need a greater degree of automation to move peeled shrimp to further processing/cooking/packaging/freezing stages.
