Feed System

SeaFeed

The development of our new feed system, SeaFeed, is the result of working directly with, and listening to, the needs of the aquaculture market and experience of over 30 years working in the industry. Gael Force Group have now developed a new system that puts the farm manager in control. Bespoke software allows each farm to control the way they feed and in a way that suits them, their fish and the environment they grow their fish in.

Each element of the system has been selected to reduce feed waste, save energy, minimise maintenance and has operator and barge safety at its heart. A new tried and tested blower is featured which is innovative, very compact and maintenance free with low noise output. The screw conveyor has been designed and developed in-house using our experience and lessons learned from installing well over 100 feed systems and which will deliver accuracy and reduce waste.

The selector is a stylish new concept with a unique solution that puts safety first. Farm operator safety and prevention of ingress of water are an integral part of the system design. Our SeaFeed system is designed and built to suit high energy sites where reliability, safety and low maintenance are critical to the performance of the site and the growth of the fish. To safeguard operators safety interlocks are fitted to each component where there are known risks of entrapment and injury. To safeguard the integrity of the barge our selectors feature a watertight “homing” position which the swan neck delivery pipe defaults to when not feeding, or when a pipe becomes detached.

To enhance accuracy and precision of the selected outlet from the selector valve and reduce maintenance, HTD belt drives are used in the selector valves which are available in either 4 way or 8 way outlet options.
