Melters

Unique features of PTL melters are their flexibility and washdown capability, enabling users to go from one product to another quickly and easily, maximising production.

The melters are designed to melt product continuously, corresponding to downstream production rates. They melt chocolate, compound, liquor, butter and fats.

They can be used to melt blocks and – using a special device -melt buttons and chips thoroughly, all at high speeds.

PTL melters come with self-contained heating systems, meaning they can be transported on castors.

If preferred, we can use your existing hot-water system as the heating source.

The bottom tank with its own heating system can be used as a storage and delivery tank for the next process, i.e. it can be used to deliver directly to a temperer with a ring mains delivery to the use point, and a return line to a melter tank.

The melters have removable melt grids for fast and simple cleaning and changeovers. This means you can process different masses on the same piece of equipment with minimal downtime.

Double head units are available for higher melt capacity or can have a centre division for melting two different products.

Temperers

PTL Washdown Temperers accurately set up the formation of stable cocoa butter crystals, in order to ensure good gloss, hard snap and prolonged shelf life.

Extremely accurate temperature control is obtained, ensuring optimum temper is maintained at all times.

Full allergen cleaning capable.

Fast and simple cleaning.

All stainless steel construction.

Variable speed on temper and chocolate flow.

Two-zone temperer cooling and reheating.

All units have internal refrigeration units, allowing the units to be moved easily if required.

Transitions between product types i.e. dark to milk to white, are easily achieved.

Sieve Systems

Melter delivery pump transfers coating to the enrober.
Coating is removed at a percentage of coating use rate, then pumped through a vibratory sieve and returned back into the melter tank or use tank for re-use.

Necessary when products (e.g. granola bars or cookies) being enrobed release particulates into the enrober and cause blockage issues.
