Tinsley 48", 60" and 74" Chocolate Belt Coaters
This belt coater is constructed completely of stainless steel with a food grade polypropylene belt and sidewalls. Using a heated top scraper to return maximum of the chocolate from the belt surface
back into the processed product.
74" coater: 600 to 800 lbs/hr
60" coater: 300 to 600 lbs/hr
48" coater: 150 to 300 lbs/hr
Includes the following:
Intralox Series 800 mat top belting, 76" wide, and complete with all necessary UHMWP carry-way support wear strips. Driven by a 3 HP motor, 1750 RPM, complete with the gearbox for a final output
Of 76 RPM, or a linear belt speed of up to 200-FPM max. Drive motor controlled via variable frequency speed controller for belt speed adjustment from 0 - 200 FPM. This will allow for excellent product
tumble and uniform product coating at its proper belt speed for the different products.
The chocolate feed will be controlled by a variable speed water-jacketed chocolate pump feeding directly into a center fed water-jacketed drip manifold. The drip nozzles of 3-mm diameter will be
on 2" centers,
Allowing for a good chocolate feed for uniform product coating. This coater will be equipped with 35 drip nozzles. Manifold is secured in place with sanitary fittings for easy removal and cleaning.
It includes a self-contained heating system with adjustable immersion heater and circulating pump.
To prevent product traveling with the belt, an electrically heated scraping/retaining bar spaced about 1/16" from the belt surface will scrape the product off the belt and drop it down to the
other product area for reuse and processing. This will minimize chocolate waste.
A final belt surface scraper bar will be installed against the bottom of the belt to remove any excess chocolate from the belt surface. This chocolate will be collected within the easy removable
collecting pan for reuse and return to the melting tank. This trolley assembly with the collecting pans will be floor supported, therefore not affect the load cells.
