EXOS Electric Pin-Bone Remover
The EXOS-221 series Electric Pin-Bone Remover is the most efficient high-capacity pin bone remover available.
The EXOS-221 is the most productive hand held pin-bone machine we know of. It has two wheels rather than one, which allows it to move over the fillet faster than single wheel machines. It eliminates second passes. If the first wheel misses a bone, the second wheel gets it.
The EXOS-221 removes ALL bones, including the neck bone, with very little waste. Wheel speed can be adjusted for optimal performance under your conditions. Choose left or right hand. The right hand model is shown in the video. Using the right hand, you go from head to tail.
WATER RINSING OPTION
You can get the machine with or without built-in water rinsing, a highly desirable feature that we highly recommend. It allows you to push a button to clean out the accumulated pin-bones instead of running it under a tap.
Without water, you will need to have your pin boning station next to a faucet for periodic rinsing. You can rinse the bones off with a faucet or this feature, but cannot submerge the unit in water. You cannot dip it into a pail. It will rust and void the warranty.
Water rinsing is an additional $300.00.
Here is a video of the water rinsing option:
Unlike the competition, all EXOS pin-bone removers use electric motors. Other pin-bone removers use compressed air, which requires more maintenance, causes more down time, and results in cold handles for the operator. The EXOS are much lighter (1.5 lb) and have warm, plastic handles.
Installation of Water Line
When you purchase an EXOS with water, we include the 6mm plastic water line. It is attached to the EXOS by pushing it into the fitting and then pulling the collar on the fitting up. To release it, you push the collar down and pull the tube out.
You will need to install a water line to an area close to the control box. We recommend that you use a 1/4" line and with a 6mm push fitting to attach the water line. Then, using plastic ties, attach the water line to the electric power wire going to the EXOS. Then it will not be in the way. You can order a fitting from STCValve.com as shown below.
At the end of the day cleanup is quick and easy. You remove 4 parts by hand, wash them, and put them back on. No tools required.
