The Spectra 100 holds and can refine approximately 100 lbs of chocolate. That is the largest 'small' Melanger on the market and built with a brand new, heavy duty chain drive and a 2 hp motor. This is what Spectra has to say about it:
For long, we have been asked by our customers for a larger model and also with speed control options.
The largest of the stone melangers is now a reality. 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 same model to be used in any country worldwide.
This largest machine is the perfect companion for 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 melanger for a few seconds and pour out the water... it almost cleans itself. Solid Stainless Steel parts 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. The weight of the roller stones provide considerable shear and reduce the particle size quickly. 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. This machine is also perfectly suited for nut butter making as well.
The unit has two black granite "stone" rollers that rotates at over 100 rpm on a granite slab. This creates tremendous shear and reduces the particles of sugar and cocoa to the smoothness we expect in modern chocolate, somewhere in the 1-30 micron range. Please read the Grinding section about how to use it and it's limitations.
