SPECTRA 100-C  Melanger with Electronic Speed Controller Panel box 

The ideal machine for cocoa processing and nut butter processing and other multipurpose grinding needs.

For long, a request from Chocolatieurs had been the need for controlling the speed of the conching process, and we listened. The newly developed model with an electronic speed controller unit allows the drum rotation speed to be varied from zero to full speed, and at the same time also allows for the unit to be used worldwide.

This 70 lbs capacity machine is the perfect companion to enterprise. The classic Titling feature makes it unnecessary to have to lift the vessel or drum to pour out the contents. Simply tilt and pout it out and avoid straining yourself. Cleaning is a breeze..... simply pour water, run the grinder for a few seconds and pour out the water... it almost cleans itself. Solid Stainless Steel stand provides elegance, strength and durability. In addition, this grinder has all the features that make it stand out ... powerful motor, black granite stone for long life of 10 years or more and high quality internal and external components.

Tension of the granite stones can be adjusted to obtain different grades of shear at different stages of grinding and for different ingredients.  Double granite roller stones that rotate over a granite base. This creates tremendous shear that reduces the cocoa nibs to fine chocolate liquor with a particle size of the order of less than 15 microns.

Speed controller and control panel is provided as standard with the unit, and comes with built in electrical MCB protection. This unit helps you to set the machine speed for different processing and adjust the quantity of ingredients. This is very much useful for you to differentiate your process from others, and make your recipe and processing unique to yourself.

The machine works as a conch and a refiner. The tension from the stones can be fully released for the conching cycle without grinding further, such that the cocoa liquor is continuously exposed to air without grinding it further and the volatiles are removed. All models have this feature and there is no need for a separate model or attachments to buy. There is no need to buy any additional add-on's or attachments, and all are included.

Comes standard with a chain drive, and there is no issues associated with the difficult to maintain gear drives.

This amazing stone melanger is the perfect companion to your endeavours. We have made several key enhancements to the stone grinder to make it perfect for Chocolate, nut butters, mexican masa, cosmetics and other food processing. Our stone melangers can be used to make Marcepan from almond, Mesa from corn, coconut paste, Gianduja from hazel nuts, Pistachio and cashew butters, Tahini from sesame seeds, flax seeds paste, Sphagnum moss for facials, Hummus from boiled chick peas, rice batter from rice, Quinoa and many an other grinding application.

Using a Step Up 110 to 220/240 volts transfomer:

Many customers prefer to hardwire a 220 volt wall outlet to the machine. A few of our customers instead prefer to simply purchase a step-up transformer, (For example, available on for about $ 100, '
Rockstone Power 3000 Watt Heavy Duty Step Up/Down Voltage Transformer Converter - Step Up/Down 110/120/220/240 Volt " ), and then use it to supply 220/240 volts to the machine. Either way, please ensure that your electrical line can handle sufficient wattage and amps drawn by your machine. Please email us if you have any questions, or consult your electrician.


Optional Add-On's

1) The lid that comes standard with the machine does not have any ventillation. We offer a ventillated lid that may be added to the order, and this allows ventillation through netted ventillators, as shown in image below. This is especially useful for cocoa processing.

2) The Spectra melanger comes includes with a Spectra Controller panel box which may be placed near the machine. However, if you would like to mount this on an adjustable stand, that can be adjusted to the operator height for easy view and control, then we provide just this optional add-on stand. We do not mount the electronic controllers on the machine itself to prevent excessive vibration to the electronics. Also, keeping the controller next to the machine and at a convenient height enables quick start and stopping of the machine by the operator.
