The Distell Fatmeter was developed in response to demand from various customers for a meter that could measure lipid content of fish, meat and poultry products simply, and non-destructively. The hand held instrument is placed in contact with the sample and the fat/oil content is displayed on the instrument’s digital readout, providing instant processing or quality control information. The value is also stored in memory for later downloading to computer. These features are invaluable for organisations requiring collation and reporting information, especially where HACCP and TQM regimes are in force.
There are calibrations available for a large number of fish and meats of commercial importance. There is also the option of having Distell prepare a specific calibration of your choice, where required.
Please note that the instrument cannot measure samples that are frozen, and it is necessary to fully defrost such samples before measurement.
There are two models of Meat Fatmeter available:
Model – MFM 1092: This is our standard commercial model, with standard sensor head, and is used by the larger commercial processors.
Model – MFM 992: This is our latest meter, with smaller sensor head, and is meant for light commercial use.
