Continuous Drum Roaster (peanuts/ cocoa nibs/ cocoa beans)



Manufactured by PROBAT

Model Rostomatic 460 R

Natural Gas 400kw, 346,000 kcal/hr

Originally designed for roasting peanuts. This version for short-term roasting (approx. 8 min. Nominal) but with an apron belt cooler. With peanuts at (240 kg / dm³) and a short roasting time, this results in about 1000 kg / h. With peanut kernels (500 kg / dm³) that could be 2000 kg.

Possible to roast cocoa nibs/ cocoa beans. Roasting time for cocoa is ultimately a matter of taste, the short-term drum at 8 minutes roasting is about 1800-2000 kg / h. If the taste does not achieve the desired result after 8 minutes with an increased roasting time capacity reduced to maybe 1000-1500 kg / hr

The system - together with the various conveyors and containers for nut processing - was equipped with a catalytic converter. the exhaust air first goes through the heating furnace and is thermally pre-cleaned. It then leaves the system at a temperature that is already required for the catalytic converter.


System includes BAUERMEISTER storage hoppers (pre roast and after roast), automatic dosing, and transfer conveyors, buffer silo for roaster
