One of the specialists in manufacturing the fish scale OSSEIN products

We are specialists in OSSEIN's raw material (fish scale) preparation and management. Including the quality and quantity of OSSEIN products. We have a long term of getting involved in manufacturing CHITIN since 2004, and the OSSEIN process is similar to the CHITIN process. That is why the COLLAGEN manufacturers have accepted our OSSEIN product's quality and quantity.

Our goals of fish scale OSSEIN products

We are going to be a Collagen manufacturer soon, we have the intention to produce a good quality OSSEIN. Our main purposes in the production of a good quality fish scale OSSEIN for;

  • our final product COLLAGEN
  • support to any COLLAGEN manufacturers that need a good quality of fish scale OSSEIN for raw material. 

Production capacity

Fish scale OSSEIN production capacity: 240-360 MT per year.

Remark; the production capacity is depending on the raw material (fish scale).

Packaging; PP bag net weight 10/20 KGS, FIBC bulk bag (Jumbo bag) net weight 200 KGS

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


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

    • We have methods to separate the size of fish scale
      The purpose for  to separate the size of the fish scale (small, medium, big) 

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

Step 2 Raw material cleaning

    • Fish scales cleaning  by freshwater many times and for a long time to make sure that the fish scale clean

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

      This process is critical to producing a good quality OSSEIN and by-product Tricalcium Phosphate. 

 

Step 3 Demineralization process

To extract calcium from fish scale and collect 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 equipment to test ASH, Moisture, and pH. Inspection to remove unknown materials from the fish scale Ossein before using in-house Collagen production or shipping to the customer.

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 the percentage of weight loss compared to the initial weight of the sample.
      Remark: this method was modified from AOAC 934.01.
      Drying Method ( A.O.A.C.1980 Page 125 )

    • pH 6-8
      PH Content of the sample was determined by storing the sample in hot water and stirring 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 compared to the initial weight of the moisture-free sample
      Remark: This method was modified from AOAC 938.08.
