Abi 50 Chocolate Grindeur (Grinder)

Lot of our customers like the great performance of ECGC-65E but are looking for an economy model with a smaller capacity and at a lower price. To fulfill their needs, CocoaTown is offering Abi 50 Chocolate Grindeur (grinder). It is designed to grind 35-45 lbs (10-20 Kgs) of cacao nibs to yield up to 50 lbs (23Kgs) of 15 micron size chocolate liquor. This economy model has the same stellar performance of ECGC-65E.

Though this is economy model, shell, roller holder shaft, frame, lid are all made of high quality stainless steel. Double roller stones make the grinding process very efficient. Stainless steel wipers are more hygienic and easy to clean. They are more durable than the delrin wipers. Abi 50 melangers come with Stainless steel wipers as a standard accessory. Tilting mechanism helps to remove the chocolate liquor effortlessly. It also helps when cleaning the unit with soap and water.

If you are using for nut butters, you can grind about 45 cups of nuts. Since each nut has a different volume and weight this is only a reference point. The amount you can grind for each variety of nut is slightly different. As a general guideline, to get optimum performance, we suggest that the total ingredients should not cover more than 80% of the roller stone height.

Based on the location and the availability of three phase current, one can order the control panel installed with single phase input or three phase input frequency controller.
