DCM Melanger 50

This professional, space-efficient model is a low-impact refiner for making fine chocolate, nut, and seed butters from scratch.

Our DCM Melanger 50 replaces the 35. It’s a US-made, custom-built, all-Stainless Steel, tilting refiner that is plug and play ready. It has a maximum capacity of 50 lbs/22 kgs per batch. Low-impact refining allows for the maximum retention of nutritional value while at the same time preserves the shelf-life of a product.

The DCM Melanger 50 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 50’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.

The machine can be operated by a single person. Door-to-door shipping worldwide.

Optional upgrades are available for this model.
