The H500 melting unit holds 500 kg of melted chocolate. The chocolate is gently melted as the heat is transferred to the chocolate in an indirect way: From the heating rods via the water in the jacketed tank to the chocolate.

The chocolate can be drained manually from the tank. Alternatively, the tank can have a heated pump and pipe system, which transfers the chocolate to a tempering machine.

The melting tank can be used for compound chocolate too.

Additional information

The H500 melting tank is designed for 24 hours operation – every day throughout the year.

Besides controlling the temperature of the melted chocolate the control system also has an overheating security. The gear-motor unit driving the agitator system is also protected from electrical over load.

The H500 melting tank can have a heated pump and pipe system added – then the melting tank becomes model H500P. The pipes are heated and insulated, and the temperature of the pipes is controlled by a thermostat.
