- Double wall carbon steel drum design for optimal heat transfer. 3mm gap between layers ensures perfect heat transfer for homogeneous roasting whilst reducing the chance of the bean tipping.
- Additional insulation in the combustion chamber to ensure more efficient operation and retention of heat.
- Very quick cooling 2-3mins with high capacity 1.1kw cooling motor.
- Simultaneous roasting and cooling for maximum production output.
- High efficiency Cyclone featuring detachable chaff bucket with level sight inspection window.
- Sight glasses for viewing in Drum Roasting, Burner Flame and Hopper Level. Coffee sampler for removing coffee beans and inspecting during the roasting process.
- Green coffee loading system with floor vacuum receiver and dust filter system.
- Stainless Steel destoner with 45kg silo capacity. Quick destoning times 3-4mins with the cycle time automated through the software. Variable speed suction control and precise calibration of hopper flow.
- Efficient process afterburner treating both drum and cooling smoke and odour emissions. 50mm chamber insulation for maximum heat efficiency. Ringclip modular ducting kit options for easy installation.
ADVANCED AUTOMATION & CONTROLS
- Automatic hopper door with electric actuator for precise and automatic loading of the coffee into the drum at the start of a profile. Quiet operation with no compressor required.
- Automatic drum door with electric actuator for precise and automatic dumping of coffee from the drum to the cooling tray and starting of the cooling cycle. Ability to set bean temperature automatic dump in software as well as cooling cycle time and mixer actuator speed.
- Automatic cooling tray door with electric actuator for automatic dumping from the cooling tray and starting of the destoning process. Parameters controlled through the software.
- Next generation Coffee Sweet PC control system designed specifically for the Phantom Series of roasters.
- 8x faster processing speed with 3x independent processors for increased functionality, additional storage space and future upgrades.
- Real time graphing of all 4 thermocouple temperatures, Gas, Fan, Drum Speed and Rate of Rise on all.
- Independent control module on the roaster with its own memory as well as PC connection allows for backup in case of computer issue.
