Purpose and Application
- Versa-Logger is a mixing monitor system which visualizes that rheological change of various foods, such as bread dough, whipped cream, or cake batter, or chemical products, etc., by probing change of the mixer power consumption during mixing/whipping process.
- Easily installed with simply connecting the mixer power cable to the equipment
- Measuring effective power consumed by the mixer – resulting mixing curve visualizes the mixing process and rheological change of the sample
- Calculates moving average, Curve width (Max-min), Differential of the curve, etc.
- Overlays up to 4 measurements on the display
- Baseline/background of power can be corrected by an idle operation before and after measurement
- Can choose a 100V or 200V model for a variety of mixers, from a desktop type to a large one.
Mixing curve of bread dough with a 100V mixer – showing dough development
Top: The main graph shows the moving average of mixing power (Red line), the width of the curve (Gray area), and first differential (Blue line). Mixing power varies on dough development.
Bottom: Subgraph shows whole trend of mixing power (Red) and temperature (Blue)
