CocoaT Power Cracker – 110V or 220V
CocoaT power Crackers are very compact and have a foot print of less than 1.5 sq. foot. Patented special rollers in the crackers pull the shell loose from the nibs in addition to cracking the beans. The beans are cracked into bigger pieces that are easier to winnow. Combination of CocoaT power Cracker and CocoaT winnower results in higher yield of nibs with less nibs in the husk and minimum husk in the nibs (less than 0.05% of nibs though industry standards allow almost 1.5% of husk in the nibs). Better quality, cleaner nibs generate higher profit to chocolate makers than cracking the cocoa beans in the regular crackers that crack the beans into smaller pieces.
CocoaT power Cracker can be ordered in 110V or 220V version. It can crack more than 60 lbs (28 kgs) of cocoa beans in an hour. This compact, stylish unit comes with DC motor, chain drive, metal gears, Stainless steel rollers, and stainless steel hopper, stainless steel support stand, stainless steel collection box, etc.
All food contact components are made of food grade Stainless steel. Patented stainless steel rollers are easy to disassemble and reassemble. They are easy to clean and handle. They also last longer.
The metal gears are outside the food contact area for hygiene and clean-ability. The metal drive is covered with stainless steel cover to avoid pinch-points. The 1/8 HP, DC motor is quieter in operation. The speed controller helps in regulating the cracker speed.
CocoaT power Cracker costs US$1750 + S&H.
