Contact me to arrange an on-site tour of Avure HPP food processing machines.
Avure’s seafood machine is the world’s only HPP system designed specifically for the seafood industry. Its innovative, vertical design cuts the labor costs of shucking and shelling, and prevents damage to the shellfish.
Its vertical design allows sand, shell fragments and other abrasives to fall away from treated seafood for collection and filtration from the HPP water. This extends the liner life of the vessel and reduces maintenance costs.
The AV-S’ process and carefully calibrated pressures increase yield by up to 80% compared to other methods. It also hydrates the meat, which increases yields compared to conventional processes.

4,000 bar (58,000 psi) of pressure separates 100% of the meat from the shell. Say “hello” to higher yields!
Standardized Annual Capacity >32,900,000 lbs. (14,900,000 kg) per year with 1 minute hold time at 58,000 psi (4,000 bar); 15 cycles per hour
>23,800,000 lbs. (10,800,000 kg) per year with 3 minute hold time at 58,000 psi (4,000 bar); 10 cycles per hour
Cycle data documentation: SCADA PC-based control system records operator, time, lot, batch, pressure, temperature, faults, and all other key parameters during cycles for validation and product safety
Actual annual capacity must be determined specifically for each package (load-out or vessel filling ratio), product (treatment time, pressure and temperature) and specific working practices (working hours, days, weeks, and operational efficiency).
