Bulk Live Holding Tank

Bulk holding tanks are designed to hold and condition large quantities of live seafood. The tanks facilitate the holding of live product for up to 12 weeks with minimal weight loss and no feeding. The tanks are constructed from heavily insulated vacuum sealed double skinned fibreglass and are controlled by an intelligent monitoring system.

MODEL - MC250

The MC250 is the smallest bulk holding tank in the Austmarine range, and has been created due to the Hospitality and Seafood industry requesting a mini Bulk Holding Tank that can fit into smaller areas, less accommodating spaces. This fully self-contained, compact unit is specifically designed for the back of house kitchens, small scale operators and small remote catching locations, and has all the technological features to effectively bulk hold live seafood. This model's design offers the ability to switch off one pump when holding light loads of live product. It also employs two refrigeration units that can provide lower operating cost. The water temperature, the operating mode of the equipment, and the water level sensor are all controlled by the electronic sensors that provide a visual message. The sophisticated micro-processor control is programmed to control water temperature to within 0.1°C, has low and high temperature alarm, and protects the compressors from short cycling from power fluctuations.

MODEL- MC500

The MC 500 is a fully self contained unit with the machinery and pipe-work located under the structural frame. This allows for the flexibility of draining the water and moving the unit to another site if required (i.e. - they are not fixed in any way). The MC500 fibreglass tank, vessels and PVC pipes have a high level of vapour seal insulation to reduce running costs. The tanks employ a sophisticated control system that is fully programmed, with high and low temperature alarms, anti short cycling from power fluctuation, low water alarms, and protection against equipment failure. The system is so effective it can hold live lobster in a hibernated state for up to 12 weeks with no weight loss. This unit is rated at holding 500kg of live product per 24 hours. The MC 500 is the perfect model for entry-level local wholesale or for retailers who wish to increase buying power and hold stock.

MODEL- MC1000

The MC1000 is also a fully self contained unit with all the machinery located in an enclosed machinery unit. The tank is designed at the ideal working height for moving large volumes of live seafood in and out of the tank. The MC1000 is also easily drained and moved to a new location. The control system on MC1000 is even more advanced than the MC500, with programmable high/low temperature alarms, anti short cycling from power fluctuation, low water alarms, pump protection devices and alarms, automatic fan cycle control and protection against equipment failure. The MC1000 is ideal for import/ export or large wholesale operations and is suited for handling product of up to 1000kg per 24 hour.

MODEL- MC5000

The MC5000 is the largest bulk holding tank in the Austmarine range and is designed to facilitate the throughput of up to 5000kg of product per 24h period. The tank is 13M long with twenty four individual holding compartments. The electrical equipment is located in a machinery unit that is often recessed into a wall to make the most efficient use of space. The MC5000 is driven by seven magnetic drive pumps that massively aerate the water. The control system on the MC5000 has programmable high/low temperature alarms, anti short cycling from power fluctuation, low water alarms, pump protection devices and alarms, automatic fan cycle control and protection against equipment failure. As the MC5000 is too large to transport, it is assembled to its final stage on site. The MC5000 is ideal for operators who move very large volumes of live seafood or those who choose to buy large volumes or aquaculture operations and value-add on valuable stock.
