Fat Analysing

Fat content or chemical lean (CL), as it is commonly known is one of the most important parameters to control in the meat industry; it is as important for cutting and boning plants as it is for manufacturers of processed meat products.

With CL percentages used by the meat industry to establish product pricing, knowing the actual lean point of recipe batches and meat portions enables meat processors to capitalise on the true value of their product.

Fat Analysis

At the center of each solution is the Eagle Fat Analyser. Using Dexa Technology the machine is capable of inspecting 100% of throughput in real time, providing in-depth reportable analysis within +/- 1CL. This non-invasive system provides lab accuracy at the speed of normal production.

Built-in Contaminant Detection

The Fat Analyser also works as a contaminant detector, alerting you to a wide range of hazardous materials including metal, calcified bone, stone and glass.


Unlike other methods of Chemical Lean testing, the SF Fat Analysing solution is not limited to boneless, ground meat. The system is capable of inspecting all meat – whether fresh, frozen, bulk, blended or packed in cartons. In addition to this the technology is not affected by freeze/ thaw plant conditions, foil or metalised film or meat conductivity.
