Unprecedented Fat Management
DEXA is an enhanced form of x-ray technology that is designed to discriminate between materials based on their atomic number. It enables real-time scanning of meat trimmings and ground beef for meat composition.
DEXA uses two energy spectrums to discriminate between high and low channel x-rays, as well as two detectors. The top detector is sensitive to lower energy (longer wavelength x-rays) and the bottom detector is sensitive to higher energy (shorter wavelength x-rays). This creates a combined detector array that is capable of sensing x-rays at two different groups of wavelengths or energies, thus constituting the “DEX” or “dual energy x-ray” part of DEXA.
Increase Efficiencies & Profit Margins
DEXA technology is unrivaled in performance when it comes to chemical lean accuracy and has proven to be indispensable for companies keen to improve their bottom line and become key players in the highly-competitive meat industry.
Maximize Boning Yields
Accurate CL increases profits by allowing slaughterhouses to sell product at a premium whether packing to a target lean or point of lean. It also eliminates fat claims and lean giveaway.
Increase Blend Efficiencies
Not only will DEXA reduce time and labor when creating a batch, it can act as incoming material verification and provide supplier analytics to help determine your preferred suppliers.
Helps to mitigate product recall risk by finding foreign contaminants. It also improves overall product quality from verifying product throughput weight to batch repeatability, ensuring consistent texture and flavor profiles for the end consumer.
