Accurate dosing of batches of fish on the high seas.
Accurate weighing on board of a seagoing fishing
vessel is no sinecure. First and foremost, the ship is continuously rolling and
stamping because of the waves. Furthermore, the motors, hoisting tools, winches
and the like cause a plurality of vibrations with the corresponding harmonics.
Using existing instrumentation, PENKO Engineering developed a weighing system
with built-in compensation for all mentioned disturbing effects. This
arithmetic compensation is possible due to the unmatched high measurement speed
and internal resolution these instruments possess.
The availability of a reliable weighing data is the
basis for dosing the captured fish in batches. In practice, thanks to this
method, it appears possible to assemble the batches of fish with a, for these
conditions of use high, accuracy ≤ 1%. Because the batches are carefully dosed,
the fisherman reduces give away due to overweight and does not need to freeze
it either. That means two times profit, in money and for the environment.
Finally, with the PENKO program TP Datareporter the weighing
data is immediately available, recorded and processed. This turns measurement
results into knowledge.
