QC-SPA System

QC-SPA shell strength and packaging analyser

The QC-SPA provides four preprogrammed test functions so that at the touch the membrane keypad one of the following tests can be selected:

  • Shell, breaking strength in grams or Newtons
  • Shell, deformation in mm
  • Shell, breaking strength and deformation
  • Packaging, strength and deformation
  • Chicken meat and bone tenderness can also be measured with additional items

Additionally the speed at which the QC-SPA probe or platter moves to and from the product under test can be regulated to provide optimum test speeds and performance relating to the test can be set up by adjustments being made to the trigger force so that precise measurements are possible.

All test parameters can be protected once selected, such that they cannot be changed in error.

In order to meet a range of test applications easily, various probes and different size platters can be easily fitted to meet individual customer requirements.

The QC-SPA comes equipped with its own safety stop control, wipe clean test bed and keyboard console. This console displays large easy to read red LED displays all the results and set up parameters as appropriate.

Output for the QC-SPA is either incorporated into the Eggware software with the rest of the QCM+ quality traits or can be printed out independently on its own through serial interface printer or alternatively, being linked as a stand alone device direct to a personal computer connected to the keyboard console.
