Abi 10 Chocolate Melanger
Abi10 melangers are the Eco model chocolate melangers for entry level customers in origin countries who are looking for economic alternative for ECGC-12SLTA or ECGC-12SL melangers. It is a granite stone on granite stone grinder to grind cocoa (cacao, cacau) bean nibs to chocolate liquor or to grind nuts to nut butters or nut milks. Abi melanger has enhanced ventilation system and helps to grind cocoa nibs (cacao nibs /cacau nibs) for 24 hours or more under supervision.
Abi10 melangers have two black granite stone rollers that rotate on a granite slab. This creates tremendous shear and reduces the particles of sugar and cocoa to the smoothness expected in modern chocolate, about 15 micron range.
The whole roller stone assembly, is removable as one piece. They are easy to clean, handle and store. The roller stone assembly is locked into position by screwing in the cap with tension spring. Cylindrical roller stones made of granite are easy to clean and handle. The spare parts are easily available.
Abi10 chocolate melangers/ chocolate grinders are vertical model melangers. It is easy to tilt and empty the chocolate from the grinding vessel.
Motor in Abi10 melanger stays cool even after 36 hours of use without overheating. Don't let the price fool you. Abi10 melanger has the best drive mechanism with aluminum pulleys and double polyV belts that is not seen in any other melanger. CocoaTown is the innovator to come up with this system that gives trouble free performance.
