Lot of our customers like the great performance of ECGC-65E but are looking for an economy model with a smaller capacity. To fulfill their needs, CocoaTown is offering Abi50 chocolate grinder. It is designed to grind 10-23 kgs (30-50 lbs) of 15 micron size chocolate liquor (cocoa nibs / cacau nibs /cacao nibs + sugar + all the ingredients combined) 

When compared to similar options available in the market, Abi 50 grinder gives superior grinding efficiency.This economy model has the same stellar performance of ECGC-65E.   

Even though this is an economy model, the shell, roller holder shaft, frame, lid are all made of high quality stainless steel. Double roller stones make the grinding process very efficient. Abi 50 grinder comes with stainless steel wipers and it is more hygienic and easy to clean. They are more durable than the delrin wipers. Tilting mechanism helps to effortlessly remove the chocolate liquor from the drum and to clean the grinder.  

The unit comes with direct drive and 220 V, 1 HP,three phase USA bought gear motor. No belt needed. The Abi 50 control panel needs to be hardwired to 220V, single phase input power. The grinder wire plugs into the control panel.

The ABI50 Grinder comes with basic and deluxe control panel.

Basic Control Panel: 

  • The basic control panel comes with a speed control knob,on/off switch, and emergency shut-off.
  • Control panel converts incoming single phase 220V power into a three phase 220V power supply for the motor. 

Deluxe Control Panel: 

  • The deluxe control panel comes with a speed control knob, on/off switch, emergency shut-off.
  • External emergency shut-off pendant is installed on the grinder and the wire plugs into the control panel.
  • Control panel converts incoming single phase 220V power into a three phase 220V power supply for the motor.

The unit can be upgraded with following accessories – tension gauge mechanism, CA package and emergency shut-off pendant (usable only with deluxe control panel).

If the grinder is used for nut butter processing, it can grind nuts to yield approximately 40 cups of nut butters. As a general guideline, to get optimum performance, we suggest that the total ingredients should not cover more than 80% of the roller stone height.

The unit carries a limited one year warranty against any manufacturing defect.

The unit can be upgraded with features that are standard in ECGC-65E –tension gauge mechanism, CA package and emergency shut-off pendant.

If you are using for nut butters, you can grind about 45 cups of nuts. Since each nut has a different volume and weight this is only a reference point. The amount you can grind for each variety of nut is slightly different. As a general guideline, to get optimum performance, we suggest that the total ingredients should not cover more than 80% of the roller stone height.

      CA package 

      Special SS wipers are made and are welded so there are no screws or bolts in the food contact area. Food splash zone is modified for cleaning. The stainless steel drum is modified with 1/4” curve at the bottom corner for clean-ability. There are additional modifications done based on the health inspection report we received from one of our customers.

      Deluxe Control panel  

      Control panel comes with emergency shut off switch, on/off switches.  

      The frequency controller lets the operator change the speed of the machine for various stages of grinding. It can also convert the incoming single phase into three phase electricity for the motor depending on the model ordered. Based on the location and the availability of three phase current, one can order the control panel installed with single phase input or three phase input frequency controller.  

      Deluxe control panel also comes with timer to keep track of how long the machine has been running and lets you schedule periodic maintenance service – such as adjusting the belt etc.  

      Ammeter indicates how much current the motor is drawing. If too much current is passing to the motor, it indicates trouble. It helps the operator to know that there is a problem and they can correct it in a timely fashion. It saves the motor from getting damaged.  

      Tension Gauge 
      Tension gauge mechanism is mounted on the lock arm and constantly measures the pressure on the grinding stone. The pressure on the stones can be adjusted and continuosly monitored so that the stones exert same pressure from batch to batch. Also the pressure can be released when adding the nibs or during the conching. 

      Emergency shut off pendant on the unit 

      The Emergency shut-off Pendant can be added to the unit and mounted on its side. It helps to stop the unit and start the unit easily without reaching out to the control panel mounted on the wall. It is an added security feature.
