When clams are harvested from nature they may contain some sand and silt. This is not appreciated by consumers. Therefore, clams are stored in clean, cold seawater for a period of minimum 1 day. The shells then open and expel the sand and silt.

ACE has designed and constructed a Clam desanding system that can handle up to 45 ton clams per day. With some small adaptations the same system can be used as a live holding system for crabs, lobsters, mussels, cockles, scallops and oysters.
