Eagle Product Inspection’s FA3 Series recognized by SSICA

In an independent evaluation, the Experimental Station for the Food Preserving Industry (SSICA) recognized Eagle Product Inspection’s FA3 machine for providing reliable contaminant detection of foreign bodies, accurate data for fat/lean ratios, and reliable results with dynamic calibration for more precise product management.

The Parma, Italy-based research foundation validated the FA3 series’ fat analysis capability and confirmed that the system is a key tool for tracking and controlling suppliers and, for processors, optimizing production costs.

In its findings, released this year, SSICA reported the accuracy of the FA3 machine to better than ± 1% of fat on meat samples and cited its repeatability in multiple readings of the same sample. The independent body concluded that this form of fat content analysis is a more accurate, objective method than traditional techniques and tools, including visual assessment, with the additional benefit of providing real-time information.

SSICA also noted the system’s advanced inspection capability. The evaluation found a high degree of sensitivity in the detection of foreign bodies, which were discoverable as little as 1 mm for metallic pieces and 3 mm for bone fragments.
