Smart 5 ProFat

The CEM SMART System ProFat is a process and quality control tool designed to analyze meat and poultry raw materials for moisture, fat and protein content in less than 5 minutes. The system combines microwave moisture measurement with data modelling analysis to rapidly evaluate beef, pork, chicken and turkey meat with superior accuracy and precision. The rapid analysis can be used for process control to make blend corrections, release materials, and ensure least cost formulation. The SMART System5 ProFat can also be used to verify and maintain performance of NIR or X-ray devices.

The system uses an AOAC-approved method to rapidly measure the moisture content and a simple curve fitting program to provide the best estimate of fat and protein content. The performance of the system is comparable to the standard oven drying and fat extraction analysis methods.


Process and Quality Control Benefits

  • Complete meat analysis in 5 minutes
  • Performance comparable to standard methods
  • Solvent-free
  • Provides rapid analysis to control the production process
  • Transmit data to printer or computer
  • for statistical control and documentation
  • No additional equipment or supplies necessary
  • Durable design for use at-line
  • Uses AOAC-approved moisture determination method
  • Simple to operate with no calibration required



How it Works

The moisture content is directly measured by loss on drying (AOAC method 985.14). The moisture results

are automatically inserted into a curve fitting program (see graph) and the SMART System5 ProFat will

display the moisture, fat and protein of the sample.


CEM Sample Pads

Total Quality Commitment

CEM sample pads were specifically developed for use in microwave moisture and fat analyzers to assure the accuracy demanded for process and quality control. The pads are manufactured to meet our strict requirements for absorbance,

moisture content, and strength for consistent results. They are approved for use with AOAC methods, and are manufactured at our ISO approved facility.
