These high density polyethylene foam floats are attached to the side of the oyster bag which is then secured to the trestle table. As the tides come in and out the float gives the bag consistent buoyancy and it is constantly moving with the tide thereby greatly reducing manual handling.
They reduce labour and improve meat content and shape by allowing the oysters free movement within the bags. A wax coating on the float protects the foam from birds pecking at the material.
PE foam won’t allow water to migrate into the foam as each cell is enclosed. As a result the foam doesn’t act like a sponge and will not absorb water, allowing them to remain buoyant.
The dimensions for the float are L700 x W110 x H50 MM. Easily attached to yours bags with cable ties.
