The NitFom™ represents a breakthrough in bringing analysis of fat quality traits such as iodine value and individual fatty acids, directly to the kill floor. The NitFom™ highlights are:

  • The world’s first online instrument for grading iodine value and fatty acids in real-time
  • Robust and reliable equipment designed for the kill floor
  • The NitFom™ makes sorting of and payment for all carcasses possible through 100% testing
  • Easy-to-use calibration and low operating costs

Online prediction of fat quality

The NitFom™ can provide online data at line speeds up to 1,350 carcasses per hour. It does so with extremely high precision.

  • Iodine value in real-time with a prediction error of 1.5 iodine values in hot carcass classification and 2.0 iodine values in cold carcass classification

  • Measurement cycle: 3 seconds

The NitFom™ calibration procedure is easy and the NitFom™ brings a very reliable Process Analytical Tool to manage and control fat quality onto the production floor.

Online rapid prediction of fat quality traits (using iodine value or fatty acids as a sorting parameter) allows for an intelligent optimization for the slaughterhouse by giving the opportunity to pre-sort carcasses for optimal cutting recipes and providing feedback to the producer on feeding regimes.
