Meat process control with MeatMaster™ II

Three versions of the MeatMaster II X-ray fat analyser now available

The MeatMaster II X-ray meat analysis system can scan up to 38 tons per hour of fresh, frozen or packed meat and determine fat content and weight with high accuracy, while also spotting foreign objects.

The MeatMaster II AG (after grinder) is another dedicated version which is aimed at producers who need an accurate measurement of the fat content in ground meat as it is transported from the grinder to the mixer.

At just 1.58 metres in length, the MeatMaster II C (compact) is nearly a metre shorter than the standard MeatMaster II and is designed to fit into production areas where space is tight. It can measure meat in boxes and trays, including blocks of frozen meat.
