the Wizz cup

Symotab and Valentine have a special relationship.
It was Valentines day 2017 when the first Combo Coater was introduced.
Valentines day 2023 marks yet another remarkable introduction:

Wizz Cup

wizz-cupWizz cup is a unique digital viscosity and temperature measuring device for batter and tempura.
Wizz cup design came about during an attempt to get closer to the universe on board of a popular and highly successful European airline, 10 km above earth.
Wizz cup communicates with a multicolored lamp and can be moved over a slider to measure product from either the mixer or the dipper.
The unearthly design of the cup has an easy removable bottom. Bottoms are available with a variety of hole diameter for a faster and consistent measurement of either very viscous Tempura or a light milkwash batter.

After a set time for example 5, 8 or 10 or 20 minutes the light turns red to show the line operator that a next test should be done. The operator only needs to fill the Wizz cup till a steady yellow light turns on. When that light starts to blink, the measurement is happening.

The result is then saved in the screen of Combo Coater. Each line shows date, time, Wizz-cosity and temperature of the sample as well as where the sample was taken from. Temperature of the batter and especially the Wizz-cosity is the important factor for the right pick-up of coating during the coating proces.

Naturally software to create (Valentine) certificates from Wizz cup data is available. They can accompany every shipment to high end customers that value quality information and traceability. Your customers may feel your love and appreciation for their business!


The technology behind the Wizz cup:

traceability viscosity procesbatter or tempura is made up in a battermixer, either the viscosity is checked after or during the mixing another possibility is that the batter is mixed with a fixed ratio and checked by the operator with the finger. Whatever system is used the Wizz cup is your solution to check for the Wizz-cosity that you want in your battermachine during production, so the actual process is measured and not a pre-production value.
During production there are crucial factors that are very important for your batter, like temperature and/or mechanical work on the batter. Both factors change the actual Wizz-cosity and therefor the pick-up of batter on your product. The result is immediately visible after the next coating step. Is the batter to thin you will either see not enough coverage of crumb or to thick and the crumb will give curtains of batter at the back of the product. The result is unnecessary dripping loss in the fryer, which  severely deteriorates the quality and taste of the oil.
The Wizz cup measures the Wizz-cosity during the proces in the batter machine, easy for the operator to use, data is stored, traceability towards your customers.

wizz-cup display explanationExplanation of the display:

  •   Above the Wizz-cosity setting a Tempura name or code can be entered so that every  registered test is coupled to the name of the batter
  • The balance icon on the upper left is the auto calibration button. It only works during the first 3 tests of any new recipe ie during startup
  • The minute countdown window in the cup shows how much time is left before a next test is due
  • The yellow window around the dipper moves to the mixer when Wizz cup is slided 10 mm away from the metal support bar
  • The mixer and dipper can have a different target viscosity, for example if the mixer should have a slightly lighter batter then the dipper the mixer target can then be set as -0,5

Flexibility, the name of the game

Flatbed, Single flip or Drumbreader
Predust up to fine to medium breadcrumb applicator
This combined with Wizz-cosity and temperature measurement WOW
