Refining plant for chocolate conching

Achieving a balanced, velvety mouthfeel in chocolate is challenging. Larger particles in chocolate result in a sandy consistency, while too fine a particle makes the end product feel watery. Producing the right chocolate texture at 20-30 microns on the Gauss curve requires precise handling of the refining process.

Continuous chocolate refining

The P10S-CI Series by Tecno 3 is a high-precision refiner using a proprietary refiner with 10 vertical rolls. Designed with three grinding units, the technology simplifies the large-scale continuous processing of chocolate. The feed goes first through a pre-refiner stage before reaching the refiner. After that, the process is finished in the ball-mill section.
The refiner reaches a maximum capacity of 750 kg/hour, achieving high outputs in a one-step procedure. The P10S-CI has a compact build, saving on floor space.
