Lot of our customers like the great performance of Alpha12 (ECGC-12SQSS) but are looking for a way to scale up. They are not ready to buy Alpha100 (ECGC-65) or even Alpha50 (Abi50). To fulfill their needs, CocoaTown is now offering Alpha25 (Abi 25) Chocolate Grinder. 

Alpha25 (Abi 25) is a tabletop grinder. It is designed to grind 12-25 lbs (5 to 12 kg) of chocolate liquor including all the ingredients. This economy model has the same stellar performance of Alpha1000 (ECGC-65E).

All the food contact areas are made with 304 grade stainless steel. Food splash zones, frame and motor housing are all made of stainless steel. Double roller stones make the grinding process very efficient. Stainless steel wipers are hygienic and easy to clean.

Tilting mechanism helps to remove the chocolate liquor effortlessly. It also helps when cleaning the unit with soap and water.

The unit comes with 220 V, 0.5 HP, three phase USA bought motor and control panel. Gears and belt mechanism are used for longer life of the parts. Alpha25 (Abi 25) grinder gives superior grinding efficiency and produces chocolate liquor of 15-18micron size.

The control panel helps to regulate the drum speed for various stages of grinding. The inverter converts the incoming single-phase power to three phase power for the motor. It needs to be connected to 220V, single phase input. It also has on/off switch and emergency breaker.

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

The regular price (EXW Atlanta) for Alpha25 (Abi 25) Grinder is $3500 with Control panel.  

The unit can be upgraded with features that are available for ECGC-65E such as CA package, Tension gauge mechanism and nib feeder.

If you are using for nut butters, you can grind about 25 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.
