- Smaller fish handling systems
- Fish farming
The Ocean Master 450 is a liquid ring pump designed for installation in smaller fish handling systems with a capacity to transport up to 475 m3 fish per hour.More
Ocean Master 450 has a flow up to 530 m3/h, a max pressure of 2,0 barg and a max vacuum of 100 mbar. For instance, at a 5 meters vertical lift on the suction side the pump can move around 250 m3 of fish per hour.
Ocean Master 450 is frequently incorporated on complex vacuum conveying systems, which consist of funnels and pipes, intended for loading and refilling processes inside aquaculture plants, fish farms, fish feed and fish processing factories. Time and time again, OEMs had chosen Ocean Master 450 due to its ability of instantly switching between suction/discharge operations and had been associating the pump with durability and sturdiness.More
Ocean Master 450 is equipped with the High Strength Rotor, specially designed by Samson for the fish liquid ring pumps. The High Strength Rotor has been developed based on 40 years’ experience in researching and improving our rotor to withstand the most extreme operations within the fish industry and has proven to be highly reliable for vacuum and pressure operations.
Ocean Master 450 is also considered a replacement pump of Samson KL 430.

For more than 30 years Samson has been the supplier of liquid ring pumps for the fishing industry.
Our very first development for was the Samson HSR rotor, which we designed to withstand the typical but very harsh impacts that occur from pressure operations. The result was a fully welded 100% AISI316 rotor.
Later we learned to improve the lifetime of the surrounding wetted parts, shell and flow plates by using new materials. For this reason, we produce almost all Ocean Master 1000 and 700 with shells in AISI 316 and flow plates in bronze.
Our latest development was to implement a non-corrosive composite liner in the bearing house to prevent corrosion and shortened lifetime.

The suction and discharge performances are calculated in normal cubic meters per hour corresponding to the displacement of water flow in and out of the holding tank. The performance is measured without pressure drop and this must be therefore calculated and added to the static pressure in both suction and discharge. For further information and examples please refer to the pump manual.

“The introduction of the vacuum system is the biggest positive change that has taken place in the fishing industry in all the years I have been a fisherman,” says Roi Magnussen, chief engineer and co-owner of “H265 Asbjørn”, which is one of Denmark’s largest and most modern fishing vessels.
When “H265 Asbjørn” was built in 2008 – then under the name of “Gitte Henning” – it was Denmark’s largest fishing vessel. Since then even larger fishing vessels have appeared, but “Asbjørn” remains an impressive sight as it lies docked in Hirtshals. At 75.4 meters in length and 15.6 meters at its widest, the well-proportioned ship has a total capacity of 2600 cubic meters of fish, divided into 11 refrigerated tanks.
If you go down into the depths of the fishing vessel you will find four large vacuum pumps from Samson Pumps. A central part of the ship’s giant vacuum system, which is used for unloading the catch, and which plays a crucial role in the efficient operations of an ultra-modern fishing vessel such as “Asbjørn”.
“The introduction of the vacuum system is the biggest and most important change and improvement that has taken place in the fishing industry in all the years I have been a fisherman,” says Roi Magnussen, 49, who is chief engineer on “Asbjørn” and co-owner of the vessel.
