FishFeeder

Complete feed system for fish-, smolt- and cleaner fish farming

Our Fishfeeder system is designed to ensure the safe and smooth passage of the feed. The system also reduces pellet breakage and debris to a minimum. We offer a complete feed system as well as upgrades and expansions of existing feed systems.

We deliver a complete mechanical feed system along with our new software, OceanManager. We handle the installation and offer training.

The feed system uses only the best commercially available components. With a mixture of high-quality, off-the-shelf items, and those specifically developed and produced by our collaboration partners.

The FishFeeder system has been adapted and greatly influenced by established professional specialist companies with extensive experience in fish farming.

FishFeeder - the software

FishFeeder is the software controlling the mechanical feed system. It has been developed entirely within the Faroe Islands in response to demand from Faroese fish- and smolt farmers.

FishFeeder is a very flexible, easy-to-use software, with a straightforward, and uncomplicated user interface. It has been developed to use the latest technology and can control all existing feed systems hardware in the market. The software can also host and control several farming sites simultaneously.

It can also export data to other software. Adjustments and adaptations are easily executed.

The FishFeeder is web-based and requires a control cabinet to be installed in conjunction with the software. Our call centre is available to provide guidance and user support.

Products - for feed systems

Our clients are some of the most experienced fish farmers in the world, so our products must live up to their daily needs.
We have developed and produced key components for our feed systems.

Two critical elements developed for our feed systems are the “Auger” and the “Selector”.

Fish are just as quality-conscious as the fish farmers. They prefer to eat intact pellets and avoid those broken and fragmented.
Our products are specially designed to minimize feed wastage by giving the feed a particularly smooth passage through the system. Therefore, reducing to a minimum expensive breakage and dusting.

FishFeeder Auger — The Auger

The auger is made of stainless steel and is maintenance-free. It is custom-designed to give the feed sufficient volume in transit, avoiding pressure compaction. Designed to precisely dose, allowing precise system calibration and ensuring accurate feed weight dosage.

The auger is easily calibrated to the feed system using a computer, tablet or smartphone with the OceanManager software.

FishFeeder Selector — The Selector Valve

  • Compact & robust 3-line 90mm selector
  • Simple push-in connection system for 90mm SDR10 HOPE feed pipes
  • Integral, easy to operate 3x 90mm feed pipe clamp
  • No tools, one-handed, easy cover removal & refitting - no bolts or catches
  • 3-spring energisation of disc seal for optimal dust sealing performance
  • Lines not being fed are automatically blanked to prevent blow-back
  • Setting marks on front seal & frame for rapid bend alignment/ position sensor checks without the need to remove feed pipe
  • Proximity switches at high level - maximum safety during adjustment
  • Integral internal terminal box for position sensor leads
  • Individual internal steel conduits safely route power & sensing cables past rotating components
  • Supplied with position sensors factory set - ready to put into service without needing further on-site adjustment

FishFeeder SPREADER— The FEED SPREADER

The feed spreader significantly reduces capital and operating costs since it really does minimize feed system wastage. This is mainly attributed to the feed spreader's high-efficiency bearing, which allows significantly lower blower pressure (reportedly 30% lower) to produce a given spread radius. Consequently, there is much-reduced feed breakage and fat melt.

The feed spreader minimizes site labour requirements in several ways:

  • It requires no routine maintenance during the growth cycle, nor is any lubrication needed
  • It safely withstands vigorous water flushing of feed pipes without the need to be disconnected before pipe flushing
  • It is simple and quick to assemble, ready for site deployment

About the feed spreader

  • Self-cleaning (the bearing is open and is cleaned by air, rainwater, and seawater)
  • Produced for 90 mm feed pipes
  • Spare parts are well-priced and always in storage at our head quarters
  • Easily installed-the fish farmer manages the installation singlehandedly
  • 2-years warranty

FishFeeder CLEANERFISH— The CLEANERFISH FEEDER

Sea lice are one of the biggest obstacles the salmon farming industry faces. Lumpfish (cleanerfish) as a treatment for sea lice has been tested over a few years, and this is showing some very good results. Cleanerfish also need feed as they are not only eating sea lice.

Controlling the feed and feed stability for lumpfish is an important issue for them to thrive in the salmon cages.

JT electric has designed an integrated cleanerfish feeder that can be controlled by the JT electric feeding system. The cleanerfish feeder is controlled by JT electric's Fish Feeder software and allcleanerfish data exist parallel to salmon data. This means that the feeding barge only needs one feeding software to control feed for both salmon and cleanerfish. All cleanerfish data is separate, so it is easy to keep track of.

The hardware consists of a silo for cleanerfish feed and augers running to existing sluices. This means the cleanerfish feeder feeds through existing salmon feed lines.

The cleanerfish can be built into any existing feeding barge. The placement of the silo can vary from barge to barge.

The feed spreader minimizes site labour requirements in several ways:

  • It requires no routine maintenance during the growth cycle, nor is any lubrication needed
  • It safely withstands vigorous water flushing of feed pipes without the need to be disconnected before pipe flushing
  • It is simple and quick to assemble, ready for site deployment

Upgrade your old feed systems

JT Electric offers to upgrade your old software to our new software, OceanManager. The OceanManager is ‘open’ software and can control all feed systems used in the industry. Our software is compatible with and capable of exporting data to other software. It is easy to use, with straightforward screen images.

Expansion/development of old feed systems

We offer expansions, refurbishment, and renovation of old feed systems including:

  • Increasing the feed capacity
  • Upgrading old software to our new software, OceanManager
  • Thoroughly inspecting the existing feed system and replacing worn-out components
  • Expanding the number of feed lines of an existing feed system
