Fat Analysis & Chemical Lean Testing

For the modern meat manufacturer or meat processor the old, outdated ways of chemical lean testing no longer cut it. Today’s manufacturers want more: safe, non-invasive, efficient and precise ways to perform fat analysis and chemical lean testing, anything else simply isn’t good enough.


For safe and cost effective chemical lean testing you can’t go past Eagle’s innovative FA3 Series of food x-ray machines. This state of the art fat analysis and chemical lean testing machine can simultaneously perform the following inline product integrity checks:

  • fat analysis
  • contamination detection
  • mass measurement
  • protein analysis
  • moisture analysis

The Eagle FA3 inline fat analysis systems makes use of Eagles specialised Dual Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) technology to discriminate between fat and lean portions of meat, providing chemical lean testing measurements to better than +/- 1CL accuracy. Also where other systems aren’t capable of inspecting every single inch of a meat product, DEXA can. DEXA is already widely used in the medical field, and is now used as a non-invasive, inline method that analyses 100% of the product to determine chemical lean content for meat products.


Incorporating efficient and repeatable techniques for fat analysis and chemical lean testing is an easy way to reduce any unnecessary losses your business incurs through inaccuracy, it’s as simple as that. So if you're looking to reduce costs and improve quality you can’t go past the Eagle FA3; this is one premium fat analysis machine.
