    Semi-automated System : Small and Medium Size Processing Lines
    Oceatec has developped the first sea cucumber (holoturian) evisceration on the market, for the production of the Cocoon Cut (also called Football Cut). Optimized for the Cucumaria Frondosa specie, this semi-automated production line allows to clean sea cucumbers without removing its flesh or damaging its skin. With this process, the cut along the sea cucumber body - the Butterfly Cut - is not required to remove the innards, which improves the end product value. This vacuum based process improves the cleaning productivity by reducing the required time for this processing stage, compared with the traditionnal manual gutting process.

    We also offer a fully automated gutting line for the large volume production lines.
