Flexible control of the fat refining process

19 November 2018

The New Generation refiner/conche range from MacIntyre Chocolate Systems is said to offer flexible and enhanced control of the refining process, together with improved design and easier maintenance. 

With processing capacities ranging from 500Kg up to 5,000 Kg the range offers a simple way to mix and refine fat based masses, in addition to producing smooth refined and conched chocolate with particle size as low as 15 microns. 
The New Generation refiner/conche can grind nuts into paste and also cocoa nibs into liquid chocolate for bars in addition to producing ice cream coatings, chocolate spreads, yoghurt coatings, and sweet and savoury cremes.

The PLC software capability of the system has been extended to include multi-step programming. A product specific set of process parameters or ‘recipes’ can be stored in the PLC allowing the correct set of process parameters for a given product to be selected with a single touch of the control panel screen. A control panel screen also features a suite of control and monitoring functions including maintenance alerts, storing and download of actual run data for production traceability.
