Meat Inspection Capabilities

Dual Energy Inspection

Enhances traditional x-ray food inspection and allows for the detection of materials previously unseen by single energy x-ray.

Fat Measurement

100% meat inspection provides precise chemical lean values to better than +/- 1 CL.

Contaminant Detection

Superior x-ray food inspection technology provides outstanding detection of physical contamination regardless of their size, shape or location within a product.

Fill Level Inspection

Maintaining the correct fill level is crucial for  food quality control, customer satisfaction and your profit margin.

Mass Measurement

Mass and weight measurement with x-ray food inspection technology provides an additional layer of process control and due diligence to ensure a high-quality.

Package Integrity

Package integrity is essential to identify and reject deformed packages and also critically important that seals remain airtight to ensure freshness of food products.

Component Count

Ensuring proper component count with x-ray food inspection technology is quicker and far more reliable than other inspection methods because x-ray systems can look inside sealed packaging for verification.

Bone Detection

Eagle’s enhanced dual energy detectors provide superior bone detection.
