TOMRA to Highlight Visionary Analysis System at IPPE
Meat processors and suppliers wanting to improve quality and boost their bottom line are invited to check out TOMRA Sorting Food’s QVision 500 fat analyzer in action from January 27-29 at the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) in Atlanta, Georgia, where the company will hold forth at Booth B-8327.
The innovative system, which can analyze both frozen and non-frozen meat, measures fat, moisture, protein and collagen simultaneously, and in real-time, delivering highly accurate and consistent results. The hygienic and robust analyzer penetrates up to 1” deep into the meat and measures across the full 20” width of the processing line’s conveyor belt.
Thorsten Niermeyer, business unit manager for process analytics at Leuven, Belgium-based TO7MRA Sorting Food, stated: “The QVision’s unique interactive spectroscopy technology is cutting-edge and sets a new standard for in-line meat analysis. We have made great efforts to design the system to meet the meat industry’s demanding requirements and address the needs of our customers.”
Niermeyer noted that the QVision is able to analyze up to 30 tons per hour, making it “an ideal choice for high volume meat processors.” Also for small and medium batch size processors, due to the accuracy of the QVision, it allows precise recipe formulation.
The International Production & Processing Expo is billed as the world's largest annual poultry, meat and feed industry event, attracting more than 1,250 exhibitors and 30,000 visitors from around the world. A wide range of international decision-makers attend the show to network and become informed on the latest technological developments and issues facing the industry.
