The debyssing machine (or debysser) cuts the byssus of the mussels near the edge of their shell, offering the maximum quality of cleaning of the product. Thanks to a set of specifically designed counter-rotating debyssing knurled rods and peculiar stiring and pressure washing systems, the byssus is not stipped away from the mussels, but it is gently cut at the surface of the valves of the shellfish. This allows the mussels to pass the process still alive and without stress, ready to be packed for the fresh market with an unaltered shelf-life.
The vast experience gained by our company in the design and construction of debyssing machines makes them best choice on the market for ensuring a superb quality of debyssing in time, without breaking or damaging the processed mussels. Through a careful realization, the debyssing rods undergo a "self-cleaning" process, automatically avoiding the accumulation of byssus in between them. Differently from many other machines of this kind on the market, our debyssers are absolutely safe for the operators, thanks to our technologically advanced safety systems. Thanks to the possibility to open completely the debyssing plane, the cleaning process of the internal parts of the machine is an easy and fast labour, assuring shorter maintenance time and costs.
The materiales utilized in the construction of this machine, as for every other machinery built by our company, are especially dedicated to the use in the marine environment and in the harshest conditions: the structure of the debyssing machine is totally made of Aisi 316L stainless steel and plastic material suitable for the contact with food, all in line with the European Community regulations for the food processing sector.
