The line Hauler BLH510S/160T is specically designed for long line fishing for bottom species like Hake. It is the result of over 30 years of continuous development with our many of our customers in which thousands of tons of fish have been caught.
The modular line extractor system makes standard replacement parts for this assembly feasible for the first time. This means that spare parts can be kept on board and quickly changed by the crew without them having to do any final finishing. It also means that a line hauler can be supplied with different extractors and shims to suit widely differing line sizes. If this is a requirement, please remember to specify this at time of order.
The gear cleaning section has flush mounted brushes and is of a special design which significantly reduces the number of places where hooks can get caught. The cleaning section is fitted with spray bar housing nine nozzles which considerably improve the cleaning effect of this section. The spray bar must be connected to a water supply of minimum 20 l/min @ 3 bar pressure. Higher water pressures improve cleaning action. Maximum water pressure allowed is 10 bar.
The stripper rollers at the entry of the gear cleaning section are inclined to deflect the fish onward. This feature is useful when working quickly as it helps to direct the fish into the receiving chute or bin. The spacing between the rollers can easily be adjusted to suit the gear.
