Quality of fish scale OSSEIN

. .

How to production a good quality of our fish scale OSSEIN product? 

Step 1 Preparation process - separate unknown material out from raw material (fish scale)

• We have methods to separate size of fish scale

Purpose for  to separate siz of fish scale (small, medium,big) 

• Separate unknown materials out from fish scale by a separator  machine and human.

Step 2 Raw material cleaning

• Fish scale cleaning  by fresh water many times and long time to make sure that fish scale clean

• Fish scale cleaning by caustic soda (NaOH) to remove dust and fish mucus 

This process very important to produce a good quality OSSEIN and by-product Tricalcium Phosphate 

Step 3 Demineralization process

To extraction calcium out from fish scale and collected calcium for the Tricalcium phosphate product.

Step 4 Extraction other non-collagen proteins and pigmented out from fish scale

To purify the fish scale Ossein without non-collagen and pigmented and  adjustment rang of pH to be 6-8 

Step 5 Drying in the green house 

We have  a process drying in the greenhouse to protect contamination with unknown materials and quickly to dried.

Step 6 Fish scale Ossein QC and inspection

We  have QC lab equipments to test ASH, Moisture and pH. Inspection to remove unknow materials out from the fish scale Ossein before using in-house Collagen production or ship to customer. 

 fish scale OSSEIN product capacity

The limit of capacity  come form a raw material (fish scale) only, we have a capacity fish scale Ossein product approximately  80-100 mt per year.

 

OSSEIN product properties specification and control

  • Moisture  less than 15 %

Moisture Content of the sample was determined by drying the sample at 105 c for 24 h or until the weight was constant. It was then calculated by percentage of weight loss comparing to the initial weight of the sample.
Remark: this method was modified from AOAC 934.01.

  • pH  6-8

PH Content of the sample was determined by storing the sample at hot water and stir it for 10 minutes. It was then calculated by PH METER.

  • ASH less than 1 %

Ash content of the sample was determined by storing the sample in a muffle furnace at 600 c for 24 h or until the weight was constant. Ash content was calculated from the percentage of ash residue comparing to the initial weight of the moisture free sample
Remark: This method was modified from AOAC 938.08.
