Bauermeister dry grinding coating systems produce compound coatings, work exclusively on chocolate or can produce both chocolate and compound.
The principal difference between the two systems is in the mixing/kneading/
conching. For compound coatings, only one mixer-kneader is required, since the batch time is between 30 and 60 minutes. For chocolate, several kneader-conches are required depending upon the total production rate and the required conching time. The other difference between the manufacture of compound coatings and chocolate is that the latter requires a finely ground cocoa liquor.
