The System consists of an electrically driven cocoa breaker that cracks the whole bean – raw or roasted – and a pneumatic air-flow winnower that separates the broken shells from the nibs. Both
units are compact and lightweight for use on a workbench or in the laboratory.
Used alongside the COCOAWINNOW, they can achieve results in a few minutes compared with the labour intensive hand cutting method that can take up to 30 minutes. Not only is the system much faster, but it gives consistent results time after time. Any size of sample can be treated from a few beans to a small batch run.
In operation, the cocoa beans are fed into the inlet hopper of the Breaker and pass to an internal rotating roller. The specially engineered roller and stainless steel adjustable breaking blocks ‘shear’ the beans to avoid unnecessary crushing. The broken shells and nibs fall into any convenient reception tray.
