Cocoa Butter and Fats Two-tier Autoload Melter
CMP manufactures a two-tier cocoa butter melter for a combined 3 T/hr production rate. Blocks of cocoa butter or fat (typically 20-25kg each) are placed on a loading chute and automatically fed onto the auto-loader tray which then feeds the blocks into the melter through pneumatically controls doors. Hot water is circulated inside heated rails mounted inside the melter at angles. The cocoa butter blocks melt through the rails as they slide down the declined rails. Liquid cocoa butter then flows through a screen tank and pumped to heated storage tanks.
