DCM Melanger 20

DCM Chocolate Melanger

A Large-Capacity, Low-Impact Refiner for Bean-to-Bar and Nut-to-Spread Makers

Our DCM Melanger 20 is a US-made, custom-built, all-Stainless Steel, tilting refiner that is plug and play ready. It has a maximum capacity of 22 lbs/10 kgs per batch. This professional, tabletop model is a low-impact refiner for making fine chocolate, nut and seed butters from scratch. Low-impact refining allows for maximum retention of nutritional value while at the same time preserves the shelf-life of the product.

The DCM Melanger 20 features high-quality, all-natural granite stones that refine particle size down to less than 20 microns. This space-efficient machine creates great shear, enabling a faster working time. In addition, the processing efficiency allows for maximum retention of the beans’ inherent qualities, therefore, honoring their true potential to express organoleptic (fine flavor) profiles.

The DCM Melanger 20’s, unique design allows the machine to be easily disassembled for cleaning and maintenance. A universal base allows makers to easily swap out one size bowl for another depending upon production/quantity demands. Optional smaller sized bowls can be purchased to run different batch sizes. Spare bowls can also be purchased to reduce cross-contamination from different ingredients: nuts, milk powders, sweeteners, different bean origins, etc. This flexibility results in less downtime and higher production capacity.

The DCM Melanger 20’s high-efficiency, continuous duty motor is engineered specifically to run 24/7 days year-round without the risk of overheating. No external cooling fans are needed. The machine can be safely operated for long refining times at varying speeds due to a unique motor design. The variable frequency drive system saves electricity and runs the machine efficiently. This system meets or exceeds the latest international energy efficiency standards.

A fine-tension controller adjusts stone pressure during the refining/conching stage allowing makers greater control over the finished product.

Machine and components are light enough to be handled by a single person.  Door-to-door shipping worldwide.
