CocoaT Melanger – ECGC-12SLTA

We have two variations of melangers now. ECGC-12SL is the deluxe melanger that we have been selling since 2011. We have added the tension adjuster mechanism to this unit (to replicate the functionality of the ECGC-65A Grindeur), for this unit and sell it as ECGC-12SLTA. One can completely release the tension from the stones for the conching cycle so the cocoa liquor is continuously exposed to air without grinding it further.

The conical stones rotate on granite bottom stone of the vessel, crushing the nibs and reducing the particles of sugar and cocoa about 15 micron range fine cocoa liquor.The roller stones and wiper are attached to the stainless steel center shaft, and the whole roller stone assembly, is removable as one piece. They are easy to clean, handle and store. The roller stone assembly is locked into the lid for reproducible tension. The conical roller stones serve dual function – conching in addition to grinding.Conical shaped roller stones provide more crushing area for better grinding efficiency.

The Tension Adjustor accessory on the lock arm helps to conch the chocolate liquor in later part of the processing using the same unit.

Deluxe melanger is ideal for small chocolate businesses or for R&D to develop recipes for big businesses. In addition to grinding cocoa nibs, deluxe melanger can also be used to grind tahini from sesame seeds, nut butters from almonds, macadamia, pistachios and more.  It grinds up to 8 lbs of cocoa liquor (cocoa nibs, sugar and other ingredients together) in a single batch.

Mini drum and roller stone set

Lot of our customers have been using less quantity nibs in the ECGC-12SL / SLTA unit and they had trouble because the SL / SLTA unit is made for 4-6 lbs of nibs. But we heard our customers and have come up with a solution for small batch chocolate.

This mini drum and roller stone set is ideal for customers who want to test microbatches of chocolate in a batch for recipe testing. This drum and roller stone set can grind 500gms – 1Kg of cocoa nibs. Also the roller stones are cylindrical to imitate the ECGC-65A Grindeur, so scaling up is much easier
