Rendered Products

Near-infrared spectroscopy is ideal for rendered products, meat bone meal analysis, and tallow analysis with simultaneous nutrient results for a large range of parameters available in less than a minute, and built in traceability of results. Minimal sample preparation is required and no chemicals or reagents are required.

Where To Use Analyser

meat bone meal analyserWith the use of near infrared, rendered product purchasers and producers can confirm the key nutritional attributes and product conformity of rendered products, meat bone meal and tallow, rapidly and on-site. 

Near infrared analysis is invaluable for all production areas:

  • Raw material testing
  • Monitoring and controlling mixers
  • Optimising the addition of liquid fat
  • Monitoring and controlling moisture levels in extruders and driers
  • Verifying production batch values.
