World's Largest Fish Pump For Chile

Innovac Technology, Inc., an international developer and manufacturer of fish transfer systems based in British Columbia, Canada, recently shipped the world's largest fish pump to Pesquera Bio Bio, a fish meal processing company located in Talcahuano, Chile.

The Transvac 6725 fish pump, which is based on Innovac's successful line of Transvac pumps, has the highest pumping capacity available: 275 to 330 tons of fish per hour.

Typical tonnages for other high-volume Transvac pumps is 200-250 tons per hour. The twin tanks are 220 cu.ft. each compared to about 100 cu.ft. each for the next highest volume twin tank.

Rob Zurrer, international sales manager for Innovac, calls the Transvac 6275 "the most powerful vacuum fish pump built in the world." The impellorless type of pump causes almost no damage to the catch and uses much less water, allowing the discharge to be pumped back into the ship for disposal at sea.
