In co-operation with its subsidiary BAUERMEISTER, PROBAT plans and delivers complete plants for the cocoa industry. We specialise in plants and plant components for the production of cocoa mass, starting from receipt of the cocoa beans through to grinding and blocking-off.
A speciality of PROBAT is the development of plants for so-called nib roasting. We design and manufacture both batch roasters as well as continuous roasting systems. Both can be perfectly configured to produce the required cocoa quality.
A further highlight of our plant technology is the ShellCon FSC pretreatment system. An important advantage: The preparation for separation of shell and nib takes place extremely gently and effectively. In contrast to conventional systems, the cocoa nib is thermally protected due to the special mode of operation with benefits for the environment due to the possibility of heat recovery. This energy saving contributes to reducing operating costs.
Complemented by the range of machines of BAUERMEISTER, we provide complete grinding plants – also turnkey on request – as well as individual machines with an output of 2, 4, 6 and up to 8 t/h.
