1/3 the size

Smaller and smarter

Around 90% of the major meat producers in the world are using MeatMaster. At half the length of the original unit and thereby easier to integrate as an ‘in-line’ analyzer in production plants, the new MeatMaster II unit offers the same performance, while making X-ray analysis in the process more accessible than ever.

MeatMaster II is a great opportunity for meat companies to get full control of the fat content in their products.

Improvements with the new MeatMaster II includes:

  • All aspects of the instrument have been fine-tuned.
  • Installation can be completed in a day using a supplied calibration and with local support from FOSS experts.
  • New software options supplied as standard include multi-language interfaces and process control software for fully automated control of batches.
  • The IP69K unit is robust and designed for easy cleaning and maintenance. For example, the belt can be removed for cleaning in less than two minutes.

Now is the time for everyone to get into in-line fat analysis.

X-Ray Technology

100% control with X-ray

FOSS X-ray technology gives you unrivalled accuracy whether you are measuring fat content, weight or detecting foreign objects with a density higher than 1.7 g/cm3 (metal, bone, glass etc.). The system scans 100% of the meat in the form of whole cuts, trimmings or minced meat up to 20 cm in height. The meat can be in cartons, plastic trays or loose on the belt, chilled and/or frozen.
