BioNovations TS1-500 Live Seafood Holding System is designed for those wholesale operators, retailers, restaurants, hotels, fish markets and fishers whose goal is to hold medium volumes of live seafood.

  • The TS1-500 has mechanical filtration, bio-conversion, refrigeration, and aeration built into the system. The insulated Traystor® II holding tank and optional insulated cover make the system energy efficient.
  • The TS1-500 Live Seafood Holding System is self-regulating for water level. As a result, the Traystor® II holding tank and the biological converter cannot be pumped dry.
  • The TS1-500 is equipped with a condensing unit sized for each customer's requirements. The condensing unit is equipped with a titanium evaporator coil and an electronic temperature controller for accurate water temperature control. Combined heating/ cooling systems are available for warm water species. This system is equipped with a pump, manufactured from thermoplastic glass filled resin, sized for the systems's flow requirements and compatible with seawater.
  • The TS1-500 can easily hold up to 500 lb / 227 kg of live seafood and, like all of our systems, it can be connected to an optional retail display case.
  • The TS1-500 systems come with optional alarm systems and water quality monitoring controllers.

* The TS1-500-E Live Seafood Holding System is the expandable version of the TS1-500. The TS1-500-E can be expanded to a 1000 lb/ 455 kg system by adding piping, additional trays, insulated cover and placing another Traystor® II holding tank beside the existing Traystor® II tank. If you plan to expand the TS1-500, BioNovations will need to increase the pump size and filtration at the outset.
