Bauermeister comes from a long history in chocolate and cocoa machinery. This knowledge and experience were used to develop a special plant setup and mill configuration especially for cocoa and compound chocolate powder grinding. Difficulties that were taken into account for cocoa grinding include:
- Existence of hard to grind and abrasive shell fractions
- Tendency of cocoa powder to stick (especially at higher fat contents)
- Necessity of a cooling / conditioning after grinding to achieve a free-flowing cocoa powder without the inclination to clump
Many Bauermeister mills are established all around the world for the grinding of cocoa press cake or compound chocolate recipes. For every application there is an optimal combination of mill parameters depending on the recipe, residual fat content, desired fineness and throughput. The right mill setup and integration of the mill into a production plant depend on the general conditions as well as on the individual requirements of every plant operator. For the evaluation of the criteria Bauermeister specialists are available for a competent consultation.
