EXOS Item #: EXOS-130 -

The EXOS 130 Electric Pin-Bone Remover series is an efficient one wheel electric pin-bone remover for small fish including Trout. ____ ____ EXOS 130 The EXOS 130 is best used with small fish including Trout fillets as small as 4 oz.  The EXOS was originally developed for salmon, making it unsuitable for the bones in smaller fish.  So in 2019, we made an optional thicker nylon guide to close the gap between the wheel and the guide.  See the photo above.  We did...

EXOS Item #: EXOS-221 -

The EXOS-221 series Electric Pin-Bone Remover is the most efficient high-capacity pin bone remover available.   EXOS Electric Pin-Bone Remover EXOS-221 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.  Removes All Bones The EXOS-221 removes ALL bones, including...

Hand-Held Pin Bone Removers

There are 3 ways to remove pin-bones from fish fillets:

  • manually with tweezers or pliers;
  • by automatic machine (see our automatic pin bone remover machines);
  • or by a hand-held pin-bone remover machine.

We carry the Kaj Olesen and EXOS hand-held electric pin-bone removers which have been produced for decades. There have been continual improvements. The current models are the fastest, most reliable and easiest to use pin-bone removers available.

Our pin-bone removers use electric motors in the handle resulting in very little maintenance and fast, efficient operation. The machines have warm handles, allowing operators to work without becoming fatigued. 

Competitors use compressed air to power their machines resulting in more maintenance, more down time, heavier hand pieces and cold handles.

3 Pin Bone Removers for different species

AutoFishScalers carries 3 hand-held pin bone removers, each one specializing in certain species of fish. 

The EM-10 is good for Salmon and trout, including small trout fillets down to 150 grams (5.5 oz.) It also excels in softer fish like Steelhead or Whitefish.  There are 2 nylon guides available, one for Salmon and one for small Trout.

The EXOS 130 can be used on Salmon and Trout, but in our opinion it is best for small Trout.  We have developed a separate nylon guide for the smaller bones which makes this a light and agile tool.

The EXOS 221 is best for larger fish with firm flesh, like Salmon.  It has 2 wheels, so it is a bit faster than a one wheel model.  It does not work well on smaller fish due to the size of the area that contacts the fish.

The EM-10 

The EM-10 is the original hand pin bone machine designed for Salmon.  Over the year it has been modified to perform on trout by replacing the nylon guide with the optional guide for trout.  The space between wheel and guide is adjustable, and it is good for processing Trout as small as 150 grams (5.5 oz.).  Processors report that it is also better than most at processing fish with softer flesh like Whitefish and Steelhead.

The EXOS 221 Series

The 221 has 2 deboning wheels for larger fish. It was designed for Salmon.  It is used in fish processing operations, either alone or at the end of an automated line. These are capable of continual operation all day. 

Two (2) wheels pick up more bones in one pass without having to go back. The relatively large, flat base makes it easier to keep the machine in proper alignment with the pin bones on the fish. 

It is available in right or left hand.

Note that the 221 has a speed control. The 130 does not.

The EXOS 130 Series

The 130 has one deboning wheel. We recommend it for smaller fish.  

It has the same technology as the 221 for right or left hand operation. We recommend this one for smaller fish like rainbow trout.

Need to do small trout?

We recently modified the 130 to work on Trout filets as small as 4 to 6 oz.

The EXOS Electric Pin-Bone Remover has been tested on many species

The 130 will work on all listed species, but is best for smaller fish. We highly recommend the 2 wheel EXOS 221 for larger fish.  95% of our customers working on Salmon use the 221.

Water Cleansing

Optional Water Cleansing feature on EXOS 130 and 221 models.


Both EXOS models come standard with water cleansing. This is a highly desirable feature. It allows you to push a button to clean out the accumulated pin-bones instead of running it under a tap.

The water feature allows you to not have to have your pin boning station next to a faucet for periodic rinsing. You can rinse the bones off, but cannot submerge the unit in water, so you cannot dip it into a pail. It will rust and void the warranty.

 

 

Installation of EXOS 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 as shown, 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. Most people would use a 1/4" line and use a fitting like the one shown below to attach it to the tubing supplied. 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 this fitting for your water connection.
