ORKA’s Egg Tester Ultimate was used at the First Shandong Animal Product Quality Evaluation Competition in China in order to evaluate egg quality. This major event was held in May 2023 in Jinan, Shandong Province, China. 

The egg quality evaluation includes, among other things, the strength and thickness of the eggshell, the Haugh unit, the height of the egg white and the color of the yolk which were tested and scored one by one. For these evaluations, ORKA’s Egg Tester Ultimate was used to determine the test results as it can measure all the parameters in one unit.

All-in-one egg quality testing device 

The Egg Tester Ultimate is the all-in-one egg quality testing device that measures and calculates egg weight, albumen height, yolk color, Haugh unit, USDA grade, eggshell strength and eggshell thickness with one unit.

Mr. Josh Yoshida, VP of Sales and Marketing of ORKA Food Technology, says the Egg Tester Ultimate is gaining strong recognition and market share based on its versatility, convenience and reliability.

“Many customers tell us that self in–line calibration (automatic calibration) that the Egg Tester Ultimate offers is great. They say that normally this type of sophisticated machine must be sent back to the manufacturer at least once a year. Shipping can be costly, and the time lost during this non-service time is significant and very, very inconvenient,” said Mr. Yoshida. “We think that although the Egg Tester Ultimate is not inexpensive equipment, if you take into account of shipping cost, calibration fee and service time, it’s definitely worth it for customers and is part of the reason that it’s gaining strong recognition and market share.”
