BioNovations TS1-250 Live Seafood Holding system is designed for those retailers, restaurants, hotels and fishers whose goal is to hold small volumes of live seafood.

The TS1-250 can be used to transport 250 lb / 114 kg of live product, depending on the packing density of the species being held.  For transport you would need either an inverter or a generator to run the system, depending on the vehicle being used. 

  • The TS1-250 configuration is a single tank system and all mechanical filtration, bio-conversion, refrigeration, and aeration are built into the system.
  • The TS1-250 is self-regulating for water level. As a result, the Traystor® I holding tank and the biological converter cannot be pumped dry.
  • The TS1-250 is equipped with a condensing unit sized for the system. The condensing unit is equipped with a titanium evaporator coil inside a chiller barrel. An electronic temperature controller is used for accurate water temperature control. Combined heating/ cooling systems are available for warm water species. The system is equipped with a pump sized for the system's flow requirements. The pump is compatible with seawater.
  • The TS1-250 holds up to 250 lb/ 114 kg of live seafood, and like all of our systems, it can be connected to an optional retail display case.
  • The TS1-250 systems come with optional alarm systems and water quality monitoring controllers.
