How many shrimp will it peel per hour?
Will it also peel prawns?
An unexpericenced operator can do about 4,000 an hour. An experienced one can do about 6,000. The manual does not say it can handle prawns so I would not recommend it.

Can you advise how many of these machines have you sold? Also, does this machine remove the vein as well? How much waste of actual shrimp is involved?
This machine will remove the vein as well as remove the shell. You can also look at the manual located at the literature tab for any further questions regarding the process of this machine. We are looking into the number of these machines we have sold.

I own a machine similar to your prawn deviener and I was wondering if you sell separate parts for the machine? One of the discs inside that hold the shrimp has broken, and I need a replacement. I would be willing to pay for any parts you can offer to sell. Thank you very much!

I am working on a commercial shrimp operation, shipping 20 & 15 count shrimp, about 20,000 lbs per week. Interested in your machine...have two questions
a. How do we keep it clean to prevent any contaminants?
b. How much can your process hourly
c. Do we have to remove the head or is it done with your machine. ( Anticipate 50 percent sales " tails only" which will take about 22 ( 15 count with heads on) to produce a pound.
Hello, this machine cuts the shrimp down the back to any depth while destroying most of the sand vein. The shell is then easily removed by pinching or pulling it off from the underside. The tail can be removed or left on for presentation. It is self-adjusting for different sizes of shrimp, and can do butterfly, western, and round cuts. An inexperienced operator can cut 4,000 shrimp per hour. An experienced operation, 6,000 shrimp per hour.
There are a few steps to cleaning the machine - these steps can be viewed starting on page 14 of the manual, which is found under the Literature tab on the product page.
For further product assistance, our customer service department can be reached at 1-866-634-8927. Thank you!
