Accuracy Of Results

The accuracy of the FATMETER depends upon the fat/oil content of the sample being measured and ranges from an uncertainty in the fat content of (+/-) 1% (95% confidence interval) at low levels to (+/-) 4% at very high levels (greater than 45%).

Therefore it is advisable that the operator follows the measurement methodology rigorously, and always takes readings as described in wall charts supplied.

Accuracy Guide

Fat/Oil Reading Accuracy
2 to 15% from.. ± 0.5% rising to.. ± 1.0% (13 – 15% at 14%)
16 to 30% from.. ± 1.0% rising to.. ± 2.0% (28 – 32% at 30%)
31% and above from.. > ± 2.0% rising to.. ± 4.0% (46 – 54% at 50%)

The results gained will allow the operator to take swift decisions regarding processing of the type of meat being measured.
