Chocolate Conching machines: Twin 12’X 14’ conch tanks, driven by a single 30 hp. 480 volt motor. Final Drive speed is about 30 Rpm. These units were filled with chocolate and sugar and other ingredients and then slowly conched (72 hours) between granite rollers and heavy granite floor plates. The final product is an incredibly smooth product. In today’s hurry, hurry generation these time tested machines have been replaced by high speed conching machines. True they are much faster, but they don’t produce the same fine product.
