Poultry News Will Participate in IPPE 2015 in Atlanta

14 January 2015

US - will return to the 2015 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) following its great success at previous shows, introducing its new Digital Haugh Tester. (officially known as ORKA Food Technology) will introduce EggAnalyzer™, Eggshell Thickness Gauge and Egg Force Reader at the IPPE 2015 from 27 to 29 January.

The company invites attendees to visit Booth 7651 in B Hall (ORKA Food Technology) to look and feel its devices with your own eyes.

Following the congestion and inconvenience at the last year's show, Egg Tester strongly recommends you to make an appointment in advance. However, of course, you are always welcome to drop in whenever you have time.

The current ORKA range comprises:

  • The Egg Analyzer: this instrument determines the weight of eggs, albumen height, Haugh units, yolk colour and USDA grade for routine quality control and regulatory compliance

  • The Egg Force Reader: this device measures the force required to crush the shell and is a direct measure of marketability

  • The Eggshell Thickness Gauge: this instrument uses ultrasound to measure the thickness of shells for quality control and research applications.

  • The Digital Haugh Tester is new; this instrument is extremely precise and friendly to use in order to assist you with the correct process of reading of the albumen height.

The ORKA range of instruments is used extensively in QC laboratories operated by egg producers, packers, universities, regulatory authorities and primary breeders.
