The Melting Kettle comes in three sizes 250lt, 400lt and 600lt, it is designed to heat chocolate compounds, fondants, jams, marmalades, grease or any other liquids to a given temperature and keep the product stirred to allow control of the consistency. The Kettle is constructed of Stainless Steel has a bead blast finish and can be fitted with or without plastic scrapers.
It has a hinged cover with safety switch which will stop the machine as soon as the cover has been lifted, equipped with a constantly turning stirring device via a shaft through a central column thus eliminating the use of seals that can break down and cause contamination to the product, having a rotation speed of 16 RPM the stirring device will not start until the temperature has reached its set point (this can be pre set) this will protect the product and motor.
Our unit is triple walled Insulated to the outside and as standard is filled with water to provide heating of the material inside the container this temperature can be set between 0- 80 Deg C by using the temperature adjustment on the electrical cabinet, however as an option at the customer’s request we can use thermal oil.
The outlet has a 75mm stainless steel butterfly valve mounted to the front for emptying, fitted with tri clamps for ease of removal/cleaning. The electrical panel is mounted on a pillar above and to the left of the machine for easy access; this can be mounted remote if requested. We can also build the unit on to a platform with heavy duty wheels for manoeuvrability.
