Measure Fish Freshness
The Distell Torrymeter Fish Freshness Meter is a handheld meter that allows commercial buyers to test wet fish freshness simply, quickly and non-destructively. It is cost-effective, durable, and offers extended temperature specification and long battery autonomy. The Distell Torrymeter measures the dielectric property of the fish skin and muscle, which alters in a systematic way as the fish spoils. This dielectric alteration during spoilage is directly related to changes in odour, appearance, texture and flavour, so it can be used as a reliable indication of freshness. The meter can also detect if a fish sample has previously been frozen.
The meter is simple to use, with a sensing head, two pushbuttons and an LCD menu display to manage measurement, calibration and computer uploads. A single measurement can be taken in as little as 5 seconds, and up to 16 samples can be taken and averaged for more accurate results. With mains or battery operation, the batteries support a full 8-hour day’s operation. Now in use around the world, the meter’s applications include estimation of fish freshness and quality, grading according to European Standards E-A-B, determining if the fish has been frozen or irradiated, checking remaining shelf life, and determining fish age during angling competitions.
