MELTERS

  • Unique features of PTL melters are their flexibility and wash-down 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

MELTERS - ONE TON BLOCK

  • These melters melt one-ton blocks of cocoa liquor, cocoa butter or fats continuously
  •  
  • One-ton block melters are designed to melt product continuously, corresponding to downstream production rates
  •  
  • The PTL one-ton block melter is a rigidly constructed melting grid system for melting large blocks into a storage tank below
  •  
  • Combined with the PTL loading system and a block inverter the loading of one-ton blocks is handled with safety and ease
  •  
  • Steam is used as the heating source

KETTLES

  • PTL's low-profile kettles allow easy loading of blocks or buttons
  •  
  • Driven from the bottom through a static internal tube, the design eliminates seals, making operation and maintenance clean and simple
  •  
  • The kettles are designed to melt and/or hold chocolate or compound, at a controlled temperature
