This versatile enrober is designed for use with chocolate, fondant or compound masses, jams, jellies and many other products.
The standard unit is built from brushed finish stainless steel and features a split polycord conveyor, available with a total length from 1.5 to 4 metres, which is mounted with a weir system and air blowing unit. The conveyor comes in optional widths of 300mm to 800mm. The reservoir is detachable and mobile with stainless steel stirrer to which FDA approved food grade plastic scrapers can be fitted to ensure that residue is not left on the reservoir walls and that the mix is homogenous. It has a capacity of 75 litres and is water jacketed to give an even transfer of heat to the product. Mixing speed is adjustable up to 16 rpm to prevent degradation of the product and the stirrer is fitted with a soft start to protect motor and gear box. The agitator will not commence rotation until the set temperature has been reached.
As the reservoir is detachable and mobile, continuous or multi product production can be achieved with a second reservoir being remotely heated while the first one is in use. With the whole system being modular a second weir and second air blower can be added by expanding the conveyor to 4 metres with an additional reservoir fitted underneath. This is ideal in a situation where two different colour coatings are required. Bottom coating is available as an option.
The electrical panel on the unit allows variable product temperature in the reservoir, variable conveyor speed and variable speed for the transfer of the product via a rotary pump from reservoir to weir. The weir also has an adjustable gate to vary the product flow. Thus total control of the product coating is achieved.
The transfer pipes from reservoir to weir are quickly detachable and the whole unit is easy to clean.
