technologies also eliminated the need to monitor the fish and rotate screens. This alone gave Bodin a 267% increase per load.
500T features that address the specific needs of Bodin Fisheries:
In the case of Bodin Fisheries, their smoke cycle time decreased from approximately 6 hours per load to 4 – 4-1/2 hours per load which resulted in increased daily yields. Summer is Bodin Fisheries busiest season and the summer of 2015 was their first summer smoking with the Pro Smoker ‘N Roaster 500T. For the first time, they were able to meet and exceed daily demand without running out of product, all while seeing a significant increase in sales. This trend continues today as they are able to expand their management efforts away from monitoring and maintaining their smoke processes.
“In the Spring of 2015 we were struggling to keep up with the growing market demand of our smoked fish. Knowing that we would need a new oven, we reached out Pro Smoker. After explaining our product, production needs and structural challenges, the Pro Smoker sales and engineering team jumped into action. They came to visit our production plant and custom designed a venting system that worked around our structural challenges. Our new 500T horizontal flow system coupled with
a 16 station truck allows 17,920 sq. in. of smoking rack surface greatly reducing our effort and resources put forward to hit our production needs. Post installation and sale, the Pro Smoker team maintains a strong partnership in service and assistance. Pro Smoker is a top-notch company and we are happy to be associated with them.”
